Existing off-grid electrification typically includes a diesel generator providing the power requirements. This conventional solution is, at first sight, economical, but is becoming less viable as a solution. In the long run there are major challenges, often due to difficult access in remote areas:
• Reliability of generator due to 100 % operation
• Availability of diesel fuel
• Availability of spare parts and trained engineers for maintenance
Renewable energy sources are environmentally friendly, maintenance free and highly efficient, with a long operating life and comparably low operating expenses. Taking into account these advantages, POWERTECH IC have developed a cost effective robust energy solution.
