1MWh with H2 Microgrid in the Atacama Desert

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.
