Gamesa’s New Hybrid Renewable Off-Grid System Cuts Generation Costs 40% Compared to Diesel Alone

By [email protected] Gamesa aims to cut off-grid generation costs by 40 percent, compared to diesel, using a system that combines traditional gensets with wind, solar and storage.

The Spanish turbine maker said early tests showed its off-grid system could achieve renewable energy generation rates of up to 90 percent on days with high wind and solar resource.

Gamesa began operating a 2+ megawatt prototype of the system with batteries at the beginning of November.

The prototype, which combines an 850-kilowatt G52 turbine with 245 kilowatts of PV, three 222-kilowatt diesel gensets and a 429-kilowatt/500-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery, was originally launched, without energy storage, in May
