Around the world, diesel generators totalling approximately 400 gigawatts of output provide power to industrial plants, mines, backup systems and off-grid communities. In many places, the power supply is unstable and the electricity expensive. For those who rely on diesel or gas as their primary source of energy, it generally means high and very variable costs for energy generation, dictated by the price of oil, transport costs and taxes. In contrast, the cost of solar energy has been continually sinking for several years. There is a trend towards the “hybridisation” of existing off-grid or backup diesel systems with photovoltaics. Thanks to our photovoltaic Genset solutions (PV-Genset), we can contribute to significant savings on expensive fuel, to reducing energy costs and with it improving the quality of life for people in the area supplied.
