Containerised Solar PV Solutions to Provide Clean Energy to Off-Grid Populations

The containerised system can work as a grid-tied system where power is available and as an off-grid system where the grid is unavailable.

Containerised Solar PV solution

Keeping in view the agenda of attaining universal electricity access by 2030, and to enable access to reliable and affordable energy, STEAG Energy Services has developed a containerised hybrid Solar PV solution that can provide 24-hour electricity even without grid connection.

The system was launched by The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), a think tank dedicated to conducting research and policy advocacy for sustainable development, in partnership with STEAG Energy Services.

The PV solution will provide an integrated renewable energy system designed to lessen the energy burden in low-income areas. And according to the official release, It will provide stable power that will fulfill basic needs and improve the living conditions of people in rural and far-flung areas in India and other developing nations. It can be quickly set up and put into operation on remote sites that have no grid or very poor grid availability.

Built on a 20-feet standard marine container, the containerised system can work as a grid-tied system where power is available and as an off-grid system where the grid is unavailable. The panels are fitted atop the container, providing it shade and helping control the temperature inside.

One such system is already deployed at a site near Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh, where it serves as a reliable source of energy to a non-profit organisation that manufactures sanitary napkins for women in rural areas.

Joachim Rumstadt, CEO, STEAG GmbH, said, “The system is a perfect example of German engineering experience realised in India for countries needing these solutions, including India and African countries. STEAG has been present in India for 18 years and has been offering high-end engineering technology expertise for engineering consultancy assignments and for carrying out comprehensive operation and maintenance of a variety of power plants and also providing innovative software solutions.”
