MAN Energy Solutions for energy cost optimization

Hybrid power plants

energy storage 3D modelFacing volatile fossil fuel costs and stricter environmental regulations, power producers are turning towards more renewable energy sources. But these require major investments and don’t always achieve the desired levels of efficiency – or generate attractive returns. Hybrid power plants offer the best of both worlds, producing cleaner, more efficient power at lower costs.

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 and efficient, ensuring that valuable power doesn’t go to waste.

How you benefit: 

  • Reduced energy cost
  • Increased reliability
  • Increased fuel efficiency

Engine combined cycle

MAN Energy Solutions designs combined-cycle power plants that use the waste heat from the engine to produce steam. This steam is then expanded in a steam turbine to produce electrical energy. This combination of engine and steam turbine enhances the efficiency of a single solution. We are the only company on the market that designs and provides all of the key components needed – from engines to steam turbines.

How you benefit:

  • Reduced energy costs
  • Improved fuel efficiency
  • Single source for all equipment and services

Combined heat and power

3D model combined heat and power A good way of making power plants more cost-effective is to minimize energy loss and waste. International Energy Agency figures show that about two-thirds of the energy converted to produce electricity in traditional fossil-fueled power plants is simply lost as so-called "waste". Each year, about 65% of the total energy input has been lost by the time it reaches consumers.

Combined heat & power (CHP), or cogeneration/trigeneration, is the most efficient process for generating power and heat and/or cold from a single fuel source. MAN Energy Solutions designs CHP systems to meet the specific thermal and electrical load requirements of each facility, greatly enhancing its operational efficiency – with total plant efficiency levels capable of topping 90%.

How you benefit:

  • More cost-effective, efficient systems
  • Less energy wasted
  • Low CO2 emissions
  • Customized solutions to meet specific facility needs
  • Higher electrical output with the same fuel usage
