OFF-GRID

Background
DIAL DOWN ON DIESEL, POWER UP ON RENEWABLES

QINOUS reduces diesel fuel consumption and generator maintenance cost by integrating renewable energies and energy storage into diesel generation plants.

OFF-GRID SOLUTIONS

  • LOWER ELECTRICITY COSTS
  • LOWER FUEL AND MAINTENANCE COSTS
  • LESS NOISE AND LOWER EMISSIONS
  • BETTER POWER QUALITY AND HIGHER POWER RELIABILITY
  • BLACK-START CAPABILITY
1. Lodges and Resorts

Switch off diesel generators completely and reduce the cost of electricity! Our easy to install and operate energy storage solutions enable the integration of large shares of renewable energies. Not only does this improve your cash flow, it also provides you with a reliable, clean and silent energy supply throughout the year.

off grid solutions for remote villages
2. Communities and Towns

Become more independent from diesel fuels and integrate renewable energies! Improve energy reliability and power quality! Moreover, diesel-hybrid systems are often a cheaper alternative to costly grid extensions. Our smart energy storage solutions enable the monitoring and control of multiple generation units and deferrable loads to reduce the cost of electricity and improve power reliability.

APPLICATION

Renewable energies are up to five times cheaper than diesel-based energy and are a perfect substitute to abate diesel operations.

QINOUS’s energy storage and intelligent energy management solutions allow the integration of large shares of renewable energies in diesel-hybrid systems by maintaining grid stability and grid reliability at modern grid-like quality levels.

ECONOMICS

QINOUS energy storage solutions enable the switching-off of diesel generators completely. This reduces fuel consumption, operating hours and maintenance costs of the diesel generator.

The energy storage solution further improves the efficiency of the diesel generator during the few remaining diesel operation hours, thereby also providing spinning reserve, voltage and frequency regulation.
