Summary

In places with a lot of sunshine like the Middle East, Africa and Latin America, solar power is today the most efficient power source. New and innovative solar technology has long surpassed fossil fuels when it comes to both energy efficiency and costs. In fact, in the regions mentioned above, solar power is today 20-30% cheaper than power from diesel generators.

Dubai-based power supplier Enerwhere offers a hybrid power solution which combines solar plants with diesel power generators. The solar plants are used as much as possible when the sun is out, and the diesel generators add power when needed. This makes up for a very reliable and cost-effective power supply. 

 

How it works

When Enerwhere supplies a hybrid energy solution to their customers, they connect a Netbiter gateway to their control panel. The Netbiter gateway, which communicates with the control panel via Modbus, gathers data from the hybrid system such as temperature, fuel levels, energy consumption, running hours etc. and sends this data to a cloud-based service called Netbiter Argos.

Data can be sent both via the cellular network or Ethernet if an Internet connection is available. Enerwhere can log into Netbiter Argos and view current status and consumption of their systems at www.netbiter.net.

Enerwhere also utilizes the Netbiter Tank Sensor which is attached to Enerwhere’s diesel tanks to provide online access to fuel levels. “This has been quite a useful tool for us,” says Hassan Shamma. “Fuel theft can be a major issue in these types of applications and Netbiter has certainly helped us get a better overview of our systems and improve our response times.”
