17% of the global population is currently without electricity, that’s over 1.26 billion people. For some this is a lifestyle decision, opting to live beyond the grid for electricity. For the majority this is not through choice. Approximately 87 % of the people without electricity live in rural or remote areas or locations with low population. It is these locations where the provision of national grids aren’t possible, whether due to technical challenges, high cost or a lack of local government investment.
Off Grid systems are adaptable, can be expanded easily to accommodate change in use or load demand and can provide uninterrupted power 24/7. The requirement for power demand will differ from site to site and one size does not fit all when it comes to designing an off grid system, which is why our Guide to Off Grid Systems has been created to help you understand the various options available, the key technical considerations and to demonstrate the wide range of existing Off Grid customers, system sizes and configurations already providing robust, reliable off grid power around the globe.
System Types Available
- Stand Alone - Wind turbine is the sole source of power, connected to a battery storage to provide constant supply of energy.
- Hybrid - Wind turbine integrated with solar PV panels, battery storage and/or diesel generators to provide uninterrupted power 24/7.
- Mini-Grid - Multiple wind turbines and alternative renewable technologies interconnected to create a distributed energy network.
- Smart Grid - A type of mini-grid that prioritises energy demand and allocates energy to users based on real time availability.
Our solutions are compatible for integration into existing off-grid systems that may require additional power expansion or as an alternative clean technology to replace high polluting and expensive to operate diesel generators.
