Israel’s largest EPC El-Mor Electric Installation & Services Ltd and German microgrid specialists DHYBRID are launching a strategic partnership. This will allow investors and operators in Israel to benefit from El-Mor’s engineering expertise and 25 years of experience while accessing DHYBRID’s UPP: a state of the art energy management system tailored specifically for demanding grid applications.
El-Mor provides the engineering, construction, procurement and servicing of PV and battery plants. DHYBRID’s UPP technology-agnostic solution already controls and monitors over 80 microgrids worldwide and focuses on medium and large-scale energy storage applications.
Growing demand for utility-scale solutions combined with growing complexity of control requirements
Israel is experiencing a growing demand for large-scale solar power plants and battery storage. Last year, the Israel Public Utility Authority for Electricity invited tenders for power plants and battery storage with capacities of over 100 MWh. Scalable and powerful energy management and SCADA solutions are needed for their operation and monitoring.
Avi Elkayam, chairman of El-Mor Renewables, “The cooperation of El-Mor and DHYBRID is creating a unique synergy effect. Through the cooperation with DHYBRID on utility-scale SCADA solutions, El-Mor is able to extend its service portfolio, monitoring and operating energy storage and PV plants with a high level of flexibility and data depth down to the cell level in high resolution. The future-oriented control features of DHYBRID’s Energy Management System such as energy forecasting, battery state of charge optimization and advanced charge and discharge strategies ensure maximum system lifetime and economic viability of our projects.”
“50 to 80 percent renewable energy in the grid is a common order of magnitude in our projects with storage connection. Utilities in transition to high shares of renewables in the electricity grid will face similar challenges as our microgrids, where high Renewable Energy penetration is common. DHYBRID has gained broad experience in this area in the past 10 years, and we have the right technology to meet this challenge”, says Tom Fricke, Head of Storage at DHYBRID.
