Providing power to remote community

The Future of Power Generation in Remote Environments

For communities and establishments off the grid, power generation has always been a challenge. The sources of power generation are often unreliable or costly to maintain. 

Off-the-grid power generation is a challenge in and of itself, while areas with harsh environments are faced with even less reliable power solutions. 

Will these challenges continue to be a norm for those off the grid or will the future bring better solutions? 

As a leader in solving off-the-grid power challenges and innovators of power generation solutions, we believe that the future will provide opportunities to overcome many of the challenges of remote power generation. Whether the needs are small-scale supplemental power or the ability to provide consistent power, we are finally seeing more reliable and economically sound solutions.

We have all watched power generation change over our lifetimes, but what does the future hold for these communities in harsh remote environments?

Green energy for residential use

SOFC Use Case For Residential Properties

This is a concept to share the implications of using solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC) for residential use. 

Problem to solve:

Provide adequate and reliable power to off-grid residential properties. Current solutions are either inadequate for providing consistent energy or require large amounts of costly upkeep. 

Common off-grid power systems

  • Gasoline generator
  • Solar 
  • Wind turbines
  • Water 

Of the commonly used power systems, gasoline generators are the most reliable. However, gasoline generators come with the expense of high maintenance, expensive fuel costs and can be noisy.

At SPS, we have made it our mission to solve these power problems. In this use case, we will show how SOFC can provide a better alternative as a main off-grid residential power system

SOFC Generators For Solving Unique Power Needs

Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) generators provide an efficient and durable solution for power, especially in areas that are off the grid or in harsh environments. Depending on the generator, it can be used for backup power or as an extended power source. 

As technology advances and evolves, SOFC generators are creating powerful energy solutions for infrastructures, operations, and communities. 

Here at SPS, we are leading the charge in providing remote power solutions for challenging environments including harsh operating conditions and/or remote locations. As we innovate and create solutions for unique projects, we want to share our discoveries and knowledge to help others benefit from our research.

Generating Power in Extreme and Remote Communities

Generating power in extreme and remote locations has unique challenges and takes careful consideration. These areas rarely are connected to a reliable grid and many traditional means of power generation can’t perform efficiently under extreme conditions and weather. But, those living and working in these locations still expect their power to be stable without the need for consistent maintenance. 

This is true regardless of whether the location is occupied by a small outpost or an entire community.

Most importantly, power generation needs to be done in an efficient and affordable manner. While this can be a challenging problem to solve, it is not impossible. And thanks to advancements in technology, it is becoming a more manageable problem to solve. 

For those communities looking to solve their power needs, we wanted to take the time to discuss the needs and solutions at your disposal.
