About Microgrid Labs

Learn more about the creators of EVOPT.

Microgrid Labs is more than just a software company. We’re a technology provider.

Microgrid Labs (MGL) was founded as an engineering consulting company in 2014 by a team of professionals with over 100 years of combined experience covering all aspects of fleet electrification, microgrid, and energy storage projects.

Our focus is on designing and optimizing entire fleet systems by providing tools to reduce costs of design, planning, and operation.

Empowering Electrification Efforts

Since its inception, MGL has been using sophisticated modeling tools for its consulting assignments and has always wanted to make these tools available to the end-users so that they can reduce their dependence on consultants drastically. In line with this, MGL pursued its vision to provide the industry with the best software tools for modeling, optimization, simulation, and real-time control of fleet electrification planning and EV depot management.

MGL developed our proprietary fleet electrification software tool, EVOPT, funded by awards from the National Science Foundation (NSF), Shell, and Colorado State and partnered with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and UC Berkeley. MGL offers all levels of electrification and microgrid design support including initial assessments, feasibility studies, modeling, simulations, optimization, and fleet charging operations.
