A leading provider of energy saving solutions has launched a new hybrid renewable energy solution which provides cost effective, uninterrupted green energy. The solutions have been launched as part of Delta Electronics’ SolutionE concept, which aims to overhaul market standards by enabling substantial direct and indirect energy savings.
Under SolutionE, renewable energy (RenE) solutions feature a modular power supply concept that can use any combination of solar power, wind turbines, mains power, diesel generators and fuel cells, which may reduce payback time as well as electricity bills for over 50%.
“With RenE, telecom customers can go green using only renewable energy sources, whether it’s in the heart of the city or in the remotest areas of the globe. Compared with using the more expensive traditional energy sources, using renewable energy sources alone or in a hybrid solution may bring down payback time from 7 to 2 years, varying with site designs,” says Krzysztof Puczko, Product Manager, Hybrid Power Systems.
By harnessing the elements to ensure a steady supply of energy, it is possible to benefit from both environmentally friendly energy as well as direct and indirect cost savings. By installing renewable energy solutions in areas where mains power is unreliable or unavailable, electricity bills can be reduced by as much as 100% and maintenance costs (and complications) are eliminated.
A typical hybrid installation consists of a rectifier system, gen-set, PV array and wind turbine. With Delta’s stand-alone system or a combination of renewable and traditional energy sources the CO2 emission rate falls rapidly, leaving a minimal carbon footprint. All in all, RenE is an energy-efficient and OPEX-optimised solution for ensuring lower CO2 emissions.
Telecom power systems secure telecommunication services in case of power interruptions or fluctuations. The essential parts of the system are rectifiers, batteries and a power system controller. The rectifier converts alternating current (AC) to direct current (DC) and provides the power necessary to charge the batteries. The power system controller monitors and controls the entire system and site power infrastructure, maximises battery life, supports energy saving and informs the operator of maintenance needs.
