QOS’ technology can aggregate data from all types of energy sources into one analytics platform
German photovoltaic (PV) hybrid, energy storage and smart-grid project specialist, Dhybrid, has announced its partnership with QOS Energy, the data intelligence cloud specialist, to monitor PV hybrid and energy storage plants.
Dhybrid designs, installs and operates commercial and utility-scale hybrid plants, offering cost-efficient energy solutions for remote islands and other off-grid sites that need independent, reliable and decentralised electricity. The company substitutes old, unreliable and polluting diesel-powered generators with clean and efficient PV hybrid and energy storage solutions all around the globe.
One of the key challenges associated with hybrid and off-grid plants is to successfully manage diverse power sources simultaneously, in order to guarantee the security of power supply.
Through this partnership, the two companies will combine Dhybrid’s in-house supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) technology with QOS Energy’s monitoring solution to meet that challenge and ensure that each plant delivers energy as expected.
QOS Energy’s cloud-based monitoring and analytics platform was selected for its ability to acquire data from any type of plant, data acquisition system or database, a key advantage for the effective and centralised management of large and complex PV projects. This capability will enable Dhybrid to increase power production, optimise maintenance processes and lower the downtime of the plants it manages.
“Thanks to the modular and scalable platform approach of our smart-grid and EMS technology, our customers are able to reduce the dependency of fossil fuel and greatly benefit from the financial and environmental impact of renewable energy solutions,” said Tobias Reiner, chief technology officer of Dhybrid.
“Our manufacturer-independent and technology neutral technology platform ensures that their energy supply always stays extendable and future-proof.”
QOS Energy’s cloud-based Qantum suite features a complete set of customisable charts, dashboards, key performance indicators and alerts helping to gain a deeper understanding of the assets’ performance, thereby maximising operational performance. The platform also offers a fully integrated maintenance management system to help reduce downtime by streamlining maintenance workflows for large and complex renewable energy portfolios.
