For the first time, this Hybrid Power Plant will combine renewables with the complete set of innovative technologies developed by the EPS Group. The project aims to implement a microgrid in Chile that will bring electricity to more than 300 technicians constructing a power plant in the Atacama Desert (4000m above sea level). The entire system has been engineered in a containerised, plug & play solution that provides stable power on demand with the same level reliability of the national electrical grid, using intermittent, renewable power sources coupled with storage. First hybrid mini-grid with hydrogen and Li-ion storage technology. Cheap electricity to remote communities, operating in islanded mode 24/7. Complete replacement of the existing fossil fuel-based generator.
