The economic effect of RES is obvious

The economic effect of RES is obvious

Chief Sales Manager for Eastern Europe and CIS, SMA

- SMA takes a leading position in the production of inverters for solar power plants. Our product line starts with equipment capacity of 230 watts for the consumer market. Our largest inverter (with an output of 2,5 megawatt) is suitable for the industrial sector. We also deal with the installation of power storage systems and develop technical solutions for isolated power systems.

I have been working in the Russian market for over 4 years. During this time, we managed to implement several projects that allowed us to gain rich experience. And I am very grateful that the Yakutskenergo and Sakhaenergo companies have shown great confidence in the technical solutions that we proposed to create the first hybrid systems in isolated villages of Yakutia.

Isolated energy areas in Yakutia are cut off from civilization. Therefore, it is very important that the implemented systems are reliable, as well as easy to maintain and operate.

Please note that the system is operated by local personnel. And often they come across such equipment for the first time. Making control of the hybrid station available is also an important task. Having built a station in Toyon-Ary, we conducted a training. I hope the staff have learned the new knowledge. We will repeat the training in six months.

Summarizing: in isolated areas reliable and proven technologies are needed, easy to install and easy to operate.

I think that the prospects for the development of renewable energy in the Far East are very high. My colleagues and I aim to create hybrid systems in isolated villages. The introduction of renewable energy technologies can save fuel and money, which has already been proved by the example of working projects. The economic effect is obvious. No need for additional programs and state support. Already, these projects are interesting business.

On the question of the prospects for the development of renewable energy, I always say that now in remote regions of Russia there are between two and three thousand diesel power plants operating. They consume a huge amount of fuel. Their partial replacement by solar and wind generation provides huge savings to power system operators. So far, few people know about modern technology. And not everyone believes in their efficiency and economic efficiency. I am sure that soon renewable energy technologies will be very popular in Russia.
