Variable Speed Diesel

Off-grid system operators are increasingly turning to wind and solar generation to lower their diesel fuel consumption. Unfortunately, they quickly hit a technical barrier, with the operability of conventional diesel generation constraining the possible renewable energy penetration.

Microgrid Energy Storage Beyond Four Hours

This paper aims to capture and foster current thinking on new and emerging use cases for microgrid energy storage, and in particular the growing need to combine energy and power applications into a single flexible and valuable long-duration storage asset.

Protection, Control, Automation, and Integration for Off-Grid Solar-Powered Microgrids in Mexico

In 2012, Comisión Federal de Electricidad (CFE), the national Mexican electric utility, provided electric service to 98.11 percent of the country. However, rural communities in Mexico (mainly isolated indigenous communities) still lack electric service. Conventional electrification is neither practical nor affordable for these communities that are isolated and located far away from the electric grid. CFE launched the White Flag Program (Programa Bandera Blanca) with the objective of using renewable energy systems to provide electric service to these communities.

NRG: Renewable Energy

NRG Renewable Energy

As renewable energy solutions take hold, a natural offshoot is that becomes easier for new companies to visualize how a solution can work and more efficient to implement them. In other words the process to identify, visualize and embrace renewable energy is now quicker and more self-evident that ever. Another factor is the range of solar technologies and approaches now being put in place.
