Self-sufficient house

Power supply office container

Project description

Construction sites, mines and quarries depend on reliable power supply. However, a connection to the power grid is often neither technically nor economically feasible. In a gravel plant in southern Germany, a self-sufficient energy system consisting of a combination of photovoltaics, Li-NMC storage and fuel cell was installed in the customer project described. The daily energy demand of 10 – 12 kWh for office containers and truck scales is thus completely covered by renewable energy. As a result, this solution saves 88 percent fuel compared to the diesel hybrid system and reducesCO2 emissions by 93%.
