Applications

Cogeneration

In addition to generating electricity at the lowest cost, Solergy CPV can also cogenerate heat at no additional cost. The waste heat capture mechanism is already onboard as an intrinsic part of the fluid-based cooling system.

Application examples include hot water, process heat, agriculture, and enhanced throughput solar desalination based on reverse-osmosis processes.

A heat exchanger on the pillar of the tracker allows for easy integration and heat transfer to the intended application without disrupting existing fluid circuits. The option to use the cogenerated heat can be activated at any time when it makes sense for your application.

Integrated Storage

Solergy’s unique tracker design allows for direct integration of battery storage onboard. The system can be applied in both grid-connected and off-grid configurations to provide out-of-the-box energy autonomy.

Solergy’s onboard storage configuration is tested and optimized in the factory; therefore you can avoid the additional cost, complexity, and risk of integrating disparate systems in the field.

Microgrid/Offgrid

Solergy’s versatile 3-in-1 energy appliance – electricity, heat, and storage – is the ideal system to anchor a microgrid project. Multiple low-cost energy streams combined with 24x7 resiliance helps make sure that critical infrastructure assets as well as remote, offgrid systems can continue to operate under any environmental condition.

Solergy offers a great opportunity to replace costly, loud, polluting diesel gensets with clean, quiet, reliable, low-cost energy from the sun.
