By a solid and detailed inventory, knowledge and experience with (temporary) energy systems, a Smart Power Plan provides a detailed plan for realization of the optimum power supply. For this, we’ve developed our own Smart Power Plan software tool. The plan exists of a custom made energy supplies, like grid connection(s), local renewable energy supplies, batteries and/or optimized diesel generators with the on your demands tunes (renewable) fuel mix. We don’t supply and install the required hardware, but with our Smart Power Plan, you can go directly to your supplier(s) or request offers from different suppliers. We work completely independent, in order to fulfil your interests and needs to the max.
When compiling a Smart Power Plan, we use the scientific Trias Energetica approach. We first look to the energy consumption itself; is energy efficient equipment used? When will the energy being used, are the energy consumers which can be eliminated? Etc.
When the real energy needs are known and mapped, we’re going to see in which way the energy needs against minimal costs (during the entire period of the project) in the most sustainable / lowest impact way can be sourced. Is a grid connection available and can it be supplied by renewable energy (contract)? Can (a part of) the energy needs locally generated by renewable energy supplies? Is it economic feasible the run diesel generators on 2nd generation biofuel (HVO)?
At least, we’ll make sure that the available energy systems are deployed in the most efficient way. We’ll make sure to use an available grid connection to the max by using a battery as peak shaver, making combinations of power consumers with different user profiles in order to create an as constant as possible power demand (load). We’ll also look into the possibilities to increase the efficiency of diesel generators by coupling them and turn them on and off depending on the actual load demand, or we increase the efficiency by using a combination of diesel generators and battery storage (hybrid systems).
