Energy efficiency as a competitive factor to achieve sustainability

Renewable energies: New sources of growth and productivity

A strong current towards a higher awareness concerning energy consumption and efficiency is shaping the actual global situation. Renewable energies, significantly expanding their footprint, can be seen today as a competitive factor that companies are more and more willing to pursue.


The global industry is confronted with the fact that carbon emissions and global demand in energy consumption keep going up steadily. Aware of this alarming situation, governments and lawmakers try to implement stricter global environmental standards and regulations.

Furthermore, energy costs are constantly increasing, making the need of finding new alternatives to produce and consume energy even more essential. The trend to use more and more raw materials and energy in order to produce has not been curtailed. This thinking must be reversed with the following focus: achieve a greater amount of production with continuously reduced inputs. Manufacturing processes, which are steadily being improved and turned towards innovation in resource efficiency, will provide companies with better returns on investment and higher competitiveness. In the near future, resource and energy efficiency must become a key competitive edge driving decision-making and thus, allowing higher productivity and environmental sustainability.

The rising global awareness of the necessity to decrease the carbon footprint can be supported with innovative PV solar installations. As a result, The meeco Group delivers top-tier turnkey clean energy services and solutions helping residential, commercial and industrial clients to generate energy in a more resource-friendly and sustainable way.

Below are some of The meeco Group solutions that provide both, off-grid and on-grid applications with enhanced energy and resource efficiency:

sun2live – Energy generation, management and storage system

A small-to medium scale able solar power generation and storage solution integrated with the grid with fully reliable high-end components designed for hotels, households, businesses and communities.

sun2roof – Fixed grid connected roof-mounted system

From small / residential to industrial-scale integrated solution reducing dependency on local grid and providing affordable and reliable energy - available as turnkey solution and also in the framework of Power Purchase Agreements mounted preferably on residential or commercial roofs tops or car parks.

sun2safe – Intelligent central energy management and optimization system

Fully integrated power conversion and energy management tool being used with any power production solution such as grid, photovoltaic, battery and generator input.

Dynapower - MAXIMIZE PRODUCTION AND REVENUES WITH SOLAR PLUS STORAGE

Dynapower - MAXIMIZE PRODUCTION AND REVENUES WITH SOLAR PLUS STORAGE

The addition of energy storage to an existing or new utility-scale PV installation allows system owners and operators the opportunity to capture additional revenues. Traditional storage plus solar applications have involved the coupling of independent storage and PV inverters at an AC bus or the use of multi-input hybrid inverters. An alternative approach - coupling energy storage to PV arrays with a DC-to-DC converter - can help maximize production and profits for existing and new utility-scale installations. DC-Coupled Utility-Scale Solar Plus Storage leads to higher round-trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays and at the same time, opens up new revenue streams not possible with traditional AC-coupled storage, including clipping recapture and low voltage harvesting, while being eligible for valuable tax incentives.
