HYBRID

Off-grid as the phrase suggests entails that there is no presence of an electrical utility grid in order provide electricity. Often these areas are in a rural locations where there is not necessary a requirement by the utility company to justify the costs of putting in a grid connection. Generally these electrical loads are powered by diesel or other fuel generators.

As these sites are rural, a significant amount of the cost of operation is due to the logistics of transporting fuel to these loads.

 

Aside from the rising costs of diesel. hybrid power systems are systems that incorporate and combine two or more modes of electricity generation together, usually using renewable technologies such as solar photovoltaic (PV) and wind turbines.

 

Hybrid systems provide a high level of energy security through the mix of generation methods, and often will incorporate a storage system such as a battery system (BESS), or a hydrogen fuel cell to ensure maximum supply reliability and security.

On top of the energy security, the penetration of renewable energy sources also provides a lower cost of energy to the user. This provides that a significant financial saving not just in fuel and logistics but in maintenance of the generator.

 

YOUR HYBRID CONSORTIUM PARTNER

i-kWh work with solar developers and EPC contractors to diversify their energy investments to include hybrid power systems. Our team are able to design and optimise hybrid and

off-grid power systems to ensure LCOE for clients. By providing a deep financial and engineering analysis, we are able to determine the model and assist in financial modelling.

 

A COMPLETE SOLUTION

i-kWh are able to provide a full detailed engineered design for the hybridisation of generators. We are able to optimise this design based on all variables such as:

  • Space constraints for renewable sources
  • Load
  • Generator maintenance
  • Fuel saving

We provide a full design and supply and work with local integrators to do installation and commissioning under our supervision.

 

 

MICROGRIDS

As the name suggests, microgrids are smaller versions of traditional utility grids that operate independently and autonomously of the national grid. Microgrids can connected to the grid or operate in island-mode. A microgrid is a group of interconnected loads and distributed energy resources (DERs) within clearly defined electrical boundaries that acts as a single controllable entity with respect to the grid.

 

A microgrid can be formed from generators but as with hybrid power systems, there is a growing move to an energy mix with renewable energy sources for microgrids to reduce cost and improve energy security.

 

i-kWh's expertise in control systems and hybrid power systems will ensure that your microgrid is robust using the best-in-class technology and innovative engineering.

 

Using artificial intelligence and machine learning, our systems are able to adjust to demand in real-time with minimal assistance and limited risk. Your energy is clean and secure.
