Alpine farmer makes green power grid a reality with DHYBRID

On his farm in Carinthia, Austrian mountain farmer Franz Dorner generates ten times more electricity than he needs – and has plans to expand. Using photovoltaics (PV), energy storage, and an energy management system, he is gradually turning his entire operation into a fully renewable farm. Dorner has also received approval for his own wind farm. His is the first and only EMAS-certified farm in all of Austria.

DHYBRID and Vibran complete largest microgrid in Colombia

Supply security for remote region


In the Colombian municipality of Ungía, DHYBRID and its regional partner, Vibran, have installed the largest hybrid microgrid in the country. This isolated community in the Chocó Department is not accessible by road. Until now, supply was restricted to 8 hours a day and was provided by diesel generators. Thanks to the new microgrid, over 10,000 families now have a reliable power supply around the clock.

Somaliland: Solar Power and Microgrid Intelligence for an Urban Power Grid

As of April 2021, the citywide power grid supplying the city of Berbera, home to the largest port in the area, is being monitored and controlled using DHYBRID microgrid technology. For this purpose, two solar plants with a total capacity of 8 megawatts, a containerized lithium-ion power storage system with a capacity of 2 megawatt hours, and three modern diesel generators were combined in the Berbera Electricity Company (BEC) utility grid. This has enabled BEC to reduce the electricity tariff in Berbera which is now the lowest in the Somaliland and the Somali-Peninsula overall.

Whitepaper on DHYBRID’s patented dynamic inverter control (MIPT)

Microgrids with decentralized solar power plants can reduce diesel consumption significantly. However, they rarely work to their full potential because conventional energy management systems are unable to separately control the output of individual system parts. With the patented Maximum Inverter Power Tracking (MIPT) technology, DHYBRID has developed a solution for dynamically optimizing the performance of solar plants in a microgrid. This reduces costs and increases the proportion of solar power in the energy supply without the need to invest in additional hardware.

Visionary electricity supply for traffic management center and highway maintenance depot

ASFINAG, DHYBRID and K.E.M. MONTAGE implement renewable, fail-safe microgrid

The Austrian highway financing corporation ASFINAG has joined forces with its long-time service partner and general contractor K.E.M. MONTAGE as well as DHYBRID, the German microgrid specialists to create a visionary, future-oriented electricity supply for one of the most important traffic management centers and highway maintenance depots in Austria. To achieve this, the organizations have constructed a “hybrid microgrid” at the Klagenfurt highway maintenance depot. This microgrid supplies uninterrupted renewable energy to the entire site, even when the public grid experiences power outages. The Klagenfurt highway maintenance depot’s responsibilities include the monitoring and maintenance of various tunnels through the Alps as well as the well-traveled Tauern Autobahn highway.

Patented new DHYBRID technology lowers costs and increases the proportion of solar power in microgrids

The microgrid specialists at DHYBRID have introduced a new technology that lowers energy costs for stand-alone grids by achieving significantly greater solar yields. Simply by improving system management, the recently patented inverter control system can increase the proportion of solar power by more than 10%, with corresponding reductions in the amount of power required from diesel generators or other connected power grids. The Maximum Inverter Power Tracking (MIPT) system achieves these results by continuously adjusting the output of individual inverters or groups of inverters in accordance with the needs of the microgrid.

DHYBRID implements fail-safe grid concept for Sri Lanka’s leading utility company

The off-grid experts at DHYBRID have taken a pioneering approach to the power grid in Sri Lanka. Their pilot project connects stand-alone grids to ensure a fail-safe supply of renewable power that can be utilized throughout the distribution area and expanded at any time. In the first stage of the project, DHYBRID is collaborating with its local partner DIMO to establish a grid-connected microgrid. The client is Sri Lanka’s leading utility company, Lanka Electricity Company (LECO), with power being supplied to the campus of the University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka’s renowned technical university.
