Clean Energy Technology
Today there are 2 billion people on earth that lack reliable access to electricity, while another 1 billion people have no access at all. In the Philippines alone there are approximately 15 million who lack reliable access to power.
Element Renewables Group is committed to taking a big chunk out of that number using clean, renewable energy sources thus providing an increase in quality of life for thousands, to millions of lives.
Why Clean Energy?
- In the last 25 years, it has been apparent that we are creating an effect on our environment and climate, mostly negative. It is imperative that we act to reduce those negative impacts.
What Can We Do?
- We at Element Renewables can help by deploying more energy generating power through clean, renewable sources.
How Can We Contribute?
- This means growing a more efficient energy source by which electricity can be made, building power generating plants utilizing new clean technology, and finally controlling and storing that electricity in a better way.
Types of Generation
The most abundant source of energy comes from our Sun. The amount of solar energy that hits the earth each day is large enough to power the world many times over and carbon-fee. New technology has reduced the cost of solar panels and made them more durable for rural areas.
One of the biggest hurdles for any solar or wind project is how you deploy that electricity when the source is not usable, i.e. night and calm winds. Lithium ion Batteries and other sources of electrical/thermal storage technologies are quickly being developed at commercially proven levels and prices.
Burning biomass in a boiler system is part of the environments natural carbon cycle, it is carbon neutral. Fossil fuels are carbon positive due to the fact they are adding additional carbon atoms to our atmosphere. Utilizing next generation in biomass boiler systems the efficiency levels are saving costs in operations and fuel.
Today’s demand of power is much more complex than it used to be. That is why we need smarter, more responsive, and more flexible approaches in managing and controlling the grid. Using new sensors and controls, utilizing new advanced information and communication technologies, a new generation of ultra- flexible grid management solutions will enable consumers and their devices to be interconnected at cost saving prices.
A globally vast source of energy, today is being harnessed to generate electricity. Continuous technology innovation and increasing scale in today’s wind power technology will continue to gradually lower costs and enable significant continued growth in both onshore and offshore wind development.
What is a microgrid?
A microgrid is a decentralized small-scale power grid system that can operate independently or in conjunction with the area’s main electrical grid or other small grids.
Where do we deploy?
This type of system is perfect for islands and rural areas because they can be deployed quickly and efficiently.
What tech is used?
The technology used to build, own and operate such systems used to be too expensive, but thanks to new advances microgrids are now an economically viable energy project.
