Hybrid power solutions for telecommunications have been gaining popularity due to their ability to combine multiple sources of energy to ensure reliable and efficient power supply for telecommunication infrastructure, especially in remote or off-grid locations.
These hybrid solutions typically aim to reduce dependency on fossil fuels, lower operational costs, and minimize the environmental impact of the telecommunication industry.
Telecommunications systems are required to provide a constant and reliable service for their customers, which means it is vital that continuous energy supply is ensured to run the systems.
Mobile telecommunication systems require a lot of power to run. This poses some problems in remote areas of Australia and New Zealand where there is no access to the grid system, or the grid is often unreliable. Historically, the backup energy source has come from diesel generators, but renewable energy sources provide solutions for these issues.
With renewable energy sources, hybrid power systems are now able to provide solutions for the telecom industry, making it more reliable, more accessible and more sustainable.
For communities in remote areas, lifestyle is enhanced when people have improved connectivity with the rest of the word. It increases their opportunities for education and has been shown to have economic benefits. The ability to have access to telecommunications and to increase mobile phone usage, provides these communities with greater options, and hybrid power solutions can help deliver this.
Hybrid solutions, utilising available renewable sources to generate power, brings telecommunications to remote communities at a lower cost than traditional methods. Hybrid systems such as solar and diesel, or wind and diesel, makes use of renewable sources while reducing the use of fossil fuels.
While sunshine or wind is available, power is generated and delivered, and when required, the backup system powered by a diesel generator or genset will kick in to ensure consistent supply.
The hybrid system is often supported by a battery energy storage system (BESS) which makes the best use of sustainable energy generation by storing excess power for delivery at a later time when wind and sunshine are not available. This further reduces the dependence on diesel or grid power and reduces carbon emissions.
The location, type of renewable energy source available, specific energy requirements and financial considerations and whether or not there is integration with the main power grid will inform which type of hybrid system is used.
Hybrid power solutions for telecommunications industry aim to reduce operating costs, minimise environmental impact, and increase the reliability of power supply to remote sites.
The choice of the specific hybrid system depends on factors such as the site’s geographical location, energy demand, available renewable resources, and the overall infrastructure in place. Keep in mind that advancements in renewable energy technology are constantly evolving, it’s always best to check for the latest developments in the field.
