Delta Introduces Hybrid Renewable Energy Solutions for Telecom Customers

January 10, 2011 by Jeff Shepard

To ensure an uninterrupted flow of green energy, Delta Electronics, Inc. has launched hybrid renewable energy solutions (RenE) under its SolutionE concept. SolutionE, a recently launched concept that brings together Delta’s telecom power products, aims to revolutionize market standards by enabling significant direct and indirect energy savings. Under the concept, RenE solutions feature a modular power supply concept that can use any combination of solar power, wind turbines, mains power, diesel generators and fuel cells, which may reduce payback time as well as electricity bills for over 50%.

"With RenE, telecom customers can go all green using only renewable energy sources whether it’s in the heart of the city or in the remotest areas of the globe. Compared with utilizing the more expensive traditional energy sources, using renewable energy sources alone or in a hybrid solution may bring down payback time from 7 to 2 years, varying with site designs," said Krzysztof Puczko, Product Manager, Hybrid Power Systems.

Instead of constantly driving to distant places for maintenance purposes, nature’s own elements can be harnessed for a steady energy supply. RenE reliable telecom services ensure power in areas where the mains power is unreliable or unavailable. It is possible not only to be environmentally conscious, but also to benefit from cost savings directly and indirectly. Electricity bills may also be reduced by up to 100%, depending on usage of renewable energy.

A typical hybrid installation consists of a rectifier system, gen-set, PV array and wind turbine. With Delta’s stand-alone system or a combination of renewable and traditional energy sources the CO2 emission rate falls rapidly, leaving a minimal carbon footprint. All in all, RenE is an energy-efficient and OPEX-optimized solution for ensuring lower CO2 emissions.

SolutionE is Delta’s recently launched concept designed to provide uninterruptible power in the most energy-efficient way possible. It features Delta’s energy-saving products including EnergE rectifiers, OutD power cooling systems, advanced controllers, site monitoring and control systems (SMCS) and RenE renewable hybrid systems.
