HYBRID ENERGY SUPPLY – NL ANTILLES, 2016
LARGE-SCALE ISLAND ELECTRIFICATION, ST. EUSTATIUS
Today, solar energy covers 23% of St. Eustatius’ total electricity need. To stabilize the grid, which is influenced by fast power fluctuation related to cloud movement, a Li-Ion storage facility has been integrated to absorb the fluctuations, provide energy shifting and frequency stability functionality also at night.
Thanks to the SMA Fuel Solution about 2,240 tons CO2 per year can be saved. The project has been designed, and implemented by the SMA Sunbelt Energy GmbH.
