"We have the experience and know-how, so adding renewable technology was a natural step and helps us bring addition benefits to our off-grid customers."
More flexibility, reliability and revenue - our hybrid solutions let you efficiently combine renewables with thermal generation and battery storage.
Generators running on diesel, heavy fuel oil or gas have been providing reliable power for years. Especially in remote areas, they were often the only choice to ensure safe and stable electricity supply to communities and businesses.
With the rise of renewables this has changed. Once solar or wind plants are installed, generation costs for power are almost zero – as are emissions! But unlike thermal generation, wind and photovoltaic (PV) are variable power sources. Therefore, the growth of renewables may lead to increased grid instability and operational uncertainty, especially on isolated networks.
Battery storage is the third pillar of our offering and key for a stable and reliable power supply. It strengthens your grid by buffering the impact of fluctuating power demand and supply. At the same time, you increase your generators’ lifespan and decrease associated operations and maintenance (O&M) costs by running them less and more efficiently.
Scalable power. Wherever, Whenever.
To maximise the efficiency of your systems, we have created an energy package that smartly combines solar, diesel and battery storage – all seamlessly integrated and efficiently managed by our sophisticated software. You benefit from reliable power around the clock, come rain or shine, saving money and helping you do your part for the environment.
Our hybrid package is available for rent, with no costly up-front investment, so you retain capital for your business operations. And it delivers the same flexibility we are known for: scalable power, whenever and wherever you need it!
