We are capable of integrating all energy sources in order to provide holistic, sustainable and reliable power solutions. Our systems expertise includes thermal power plants (engine-, gas- or steam turbine-based), renewables (solar, wind, hydro, biomass, etc.) and energy storage (battery, power-to-gas, electrothermal, liquid air).
Our hybrid power solutions bridge the gaps between the dependable output of conventional sources and the environmental friendliness of renewables while ensuring supply security and economic effectiveness.
Effectively managing surplus energy
Effectively managing renewable energy resources is economically beneficial and contributes to the goals of decarbonization. Besides the power industry also other sectors like heating, cooling, and mobility have to reduce their use of fossil fuels in order to cut CO2 emissions. MAN PtX is an energy transformation technology that converts electricity into carbon-neutral synthetic fuels (gas or liquid) which can be stored and later used by the mobility, heat and electricity sectors.
- No wasted energy
- Single-source solution
- Wide rage of applications
Green and fit for the grid
Energy storage solutionsAs the global energy market moves away from centralized generation based on fossil fuels, the growing share of renewable energy systems (RES) is having an impact on the stability of the grid. Using decentralized RES reduces the rotating mass, consequently decreasing the instantaneous reserve of the grid. MAN energy storage systems can integrate high shares of RES into the power system by smoothing out generation and providing grid services.
- Broad range of complementary storage technologies
- Provides the most suitable technology for a specific use case
- Global EPC competence and capability to handle complex energy projects
Providing energy access while reducing emissions
Hybrid power solutions
Our hybrid power solutions combine renewable energy sources, thermal power generation and energy storage systems in a hybrid power plant or microgrid. Storing surplus energy and using instant power top-ups from engine and turbine GenSets fueled with gas, liquid fuels or even synthetic or bio fuels can make wind and solar power systems more reliable.
- Increased reliability
- Increased fuel efficiency
- Fewer emissions and better CO2 footprint
The rapidly expanding demand for LNG
LNG to power solutions
Clean-burning natural gas is a key component in our transition to a carbon-neutral future. MAN covers the whole liquefied natural gas (LNG) value chain, from consultation on LNG logistics through supply contracts, unloading, storage concepts, regasification and conversion to power. Our LNG to power solutions are based on flexible dual fuel or gas engines and highly efficient gas turbines and deliver an output of 10 – 300 MW.
- Reduced emissions compared to heavy fuel oil
- Independence from gas suppliers
- Highly efficient and reliable power
