Renewable Energy Overview
The use of renewable energy technology to meet energy demands has been steadily increasing during the past few years. Import of fossil fuels constitutes a major drain on a country’s foreign exchange reserve. Renewable energy sources are considered to be the better option to meet these challenges.
Standalone solar photovoltaic (PV) and wind systems are currently being promoted aggressively around the globe. However, these independent systems cannot provide continuous source of energy as they are seasonal. Standalone PV energy system cannot provide reliable power during non-sunny days while standalone wind system cannot satisfy constant load demands due to significant fluctuations in the magnitude of wind speeds from hour to hour throughout the year. Independent storage systems will also be required for each of these systems in order to satisfy the power demands. Having two independent storage systems are expensive and the size has to be reduced to a minimum possible for the renewable energy system to be cost effective.
Our proprietary solar PV-wind hybrid system is registered under the trade name Aris SolarWind. We have developed our system to meet the challenge of reducing:
- Energy storage requirements
- Fossil fuel consumption
- Cost of producing renewable energy
- Excess capacity of a hybrid system
- Consumers’ carbon footprint
Aris SolarWind is designed primarily for:
