The most cost efficient solutions for decentralized electrification are designed by combining photovoltaic with river or canal turbines in hybrid systems. Since the potential for small hydropower generation in India is large, these solutions would serve a large portion of the population, who still have no access to electricity.
Smart Hydro Power (SHP) will present its SMART Hybrid System at Intersolar India this year – inside the German Pavilion. India is facing an energy revolution. Despite broad grid coverage, electricity supply in remote areas remains unreliable. For the future, the government is setting a favorable political scenario by introducing solutions for decentralized electrification based on renewable energies, such as photovoltaic (PV), small wind, and explicitly kinetic hydropower.
SHP has the advantage of realizing its systems in rural areas, without the requirement for any kind of infrastructure, suitable for running canals, rivers and streams, which inhabit a large portion of India’s typography. At the distribution part of this system, integrated load management introduces an auxiliary productive load – a water purification plant – that utilizes all excess energy and stabilizes the micro grid with variable operation. Through this feature, additional value is brought to the lifestyle of people residing in these communities.
November, the 19th – 10am Dr. Karl Kolmsee will discuss “Micro PV-Hydro-Hybrid Plants for Rural Electrification – Making Electricity Productive” – part of the “India’s Off-Grid PV Market” session at the Intersolar Mumbai 2015.
Besides that, Smart Hydro Power will also ehxibit its solutions at the booth #1620 in the German pavillon.
About Intersolar India: INDIA’S LARGEST EXHIBITION AND CONFERENCE FOR THE SOLAR INDUSTRY. IT TAKES PLACE AT THE BOMBAY EXHIBITION CENTRE (BEC) IN MUMBAI FROM NOVEMBER 18-20, 2015.
The event’s exhibition and conference both focus on the areas of photovoltaics, PV production technologies, energy storage systems and solar thermal technologies. Since being founded, Intersolar has become the most important industry platform for manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, service providers and partners of the solar industry.
