Remote, off-grid and farming

Manage scarce resources frugally

Some remote sites have no-choice but to design a completely off-grid system. Other sites have the choice of hybrid models, with on-site generation and a grid connection. Deepwater can help you evaluate the merits of these choices and to manage scarce non-renewable resources frugally.

Off-grid systems are more vulnerable to local weather conditions, and how these conditions affect local renewable energy generation. Availability of energy services may also be an important production requirement, e.g. dairy farming. Deepwater can make use of local weather forecasts to ensure energy is stored against upcoming shortages in generation. This decision making process can also consider a hierarchy of needs, which energy services are most important and get priority when supply is constrained?
