Hybrid Power Solutions are stationary electricity generation solutions that integrate various energy sources using an energy management system. They include, for example, power plants in which diesel/gas engines are combined with energy storage and renewables like solar, photovoltaics and wind power. The integration of gas turbines with energy storage is another example.
We have the know-how to network the individual products in a smooth-running,
all-in system, and to optimize them over the entire life cycle.
Microgrid is a term that often crops up in connection with Hybrid Power Solutions. Microgrids are distributed power and heating systems that work both in island mode and in conjunction with a central electricity grid. This makes them suitable for distributed electricity supply on islands or in remote areas. Industrial enterprises that are connected to a central electricity grid also install microgrids in order to cut electricity costs and boost security of supply. By way of an example, the power supply at the Augsburg site is currently being upgraded to a microgrid.
The underlying conditions are very promising. Political regulatory procedures aimed at cutting CO2 and pollutants are having a very positive impact on the market for Hybrid Power Solutions. The falling cost of technology for storing energy and generating electricity from renewable energy sources is also helping.
MDT meets all the requirements for supplying the expanding market with bespoke solutions. “We enjoy excellent access to customers. We also have a strong product portfolio when it comes to conventional power generation and energy storage. And we have the know-how to network the individual products in a smooth-running, all-in system, and to optimize them over the entire life cycle,” says Michael Peters, Head of Hybrid Power Solutions at MDT.
