MAN solutions for decarbonization

Hybrid power plants

Papercut Microgrid Hybridpower

Smart solutions are needed to ensure that production meets demand, and to store any surplus power generated for future use as needed. Using renewable energies for sustainable power generation is the ultimate goal – but they all rely on one factor to perform: The weather. Its unpredictable nature makes consistent energy production and availability difficult.

Our hybrid power solutions combine renewable energy sources, thermal power generation and energy storage systems in a microgrid. Storing surplus power and using instant power top-ups from engine and turbine gensets fueled with gas, biofuels or even synthetic fuels can make wind and solar power systems more reliable.

How you benefit:

  • Increased reliability
  • Increased fuel efficiency
  • Fewer emissions
  • Enhanced independence and fuel flexibility

Energy storage

tab2-decarbonization-energy-storageSwitching to renewable energy sources greatly improves the world's carbon footprint. However, renewable power production usually relies on the weather and can be very volatile. Production and demand times do not necessarily match. Storing surplus power for later use improves both the overall efficiency and stability of these systems. Our unique electro-thermal energy storage (ETES) system combines tried-and-tested technology with the latest in carbon capturing.

Beside ETES we offer a variety of technologies to help you decarbonize your processes, including battery energy storage systems (BESS). We can also provide key equipment for a wide range of other storage technologies like liquid air energy storage (LAES) or compressed air energy storage (CAES).

How you benefit:
  • Increased efficiency
  • No wasted energy
  • Improved carbon footprint
  • Variety of solutions for all types of energy

Power-to-X

power to x solution 3D modelPower suppliers are looking for ways to produce clean energy – and store it for future use, or to balance out supply deficits in different regions. MAN Energy Solutions offers waste-free and highly efficient solutions based on existing infrastructures that meet these goals.

Our innovative PtX solution converts energy into carbon-neutral synthetic fuels – an effective way of storing large amounts of energy over long periods of time. It has a wide range of applications in the mobility, heat and electricity sectors. By coupling the major energy sectors, PtX will play a major role in creating a truly carbon-neutral energy system, reaching the world's ambitious climate protection goals and balancing disparities in availability between regions.

How you benefit:

  • No wasted energy
  • Single-source solution
  • Carbon-neutral energy
  • Wide range of applications
