Unless the genset is the only power source, and it is the only option to produce electricity, we desperately need to rethink the use of fossil fueled gensets as a backup electricity source. The sophistication in battery systems is growing daily with various chemical variations and actual nature of the storage technology. Battery systems now work at large scale and can be designed to meet almost any need. Simple energy storage technologies like pumping water into a water tower during the day and letting the water flow through a small turbine to produce electricity when needed is an example. Fossil fueled gensets pollute like crazy and need to become a thing of the past. Battery systems will support the lowest life cycle cost per kWh.
What is the best design under which a Genset diesel power plant can be hybrid to reduce cost of energy per kWh?
