Siemens to supply Qatar Solar Energy with region’s first microgrid
Siemens will supply Qatar Solar Energy (QSE) with the regions first microgrid manufactured for industrial use. Qatar is trying to curb its carbon footprint, minimise electricity costs, and enjoy a more stable power supply.
The new microgrid at the Doha-based QSE factory will entail energy sources, which include the local grid, solar panels, battery storage, back-up generators and cooling system, according to reports.
With the system generating as much as one megawatts from the sun, the hybrid network will enable QSE to cut down on its electricity bills by leveraging the use of solar power and energy storage in batteries, a move through which the company will enjoy an influx of on-peak demand.
