Germany to Power up Iraqi Refugee Camp with Solar Energy with Storage

Germany-to-Power-up-Iraqi-Refugee-Camp-with-Solar-Energy-with-Storage

On February 22, 2018 it was reported that The German Foundation for Development and Cooperation (SEZ), Atmosfair, and Autarsys in collaboration are expected to build a solar plant including energy storage to supply power to the Iraqi refugee camps.

The system is expected to include a 300-kWp PV plant and an energy storage system.  It is said to ensure a much consistent supply of electricity in contrast to the current diesel fueled generators that are normally used during daytime. These are therefore expected to replace the diesel fuelled generators thereby adding to the green climate motive of the country and provide a good alternative for the exhaustible source of energy.

Diesel fuel is not only expensive than solar PV but also dangerous to transport, especially in zones of insurgency and conflict. Project’s first phase allows for powering 1/5 of the camp. Plans are to add more solar with storage capacitors later to completely power the camp in Northern Iraq by renewables during the daytime.

Nele Erdmann, the project manager at atmosfair, comments, “We are glad to achieve with our solar plus energy storage solution long-term an uninterruptible power supply at the camp. This decreases the dependency on diesel gensets for cooling and heating. The energy supply with renewables during daytime is a perfect fit to the grid supply which is only available during nighttime.”

Matthias Ross, CEO / Managing Director of Autarsys, adds: “Refugee camps are often disconnected from national grids and rely on diesel, so we’re eager to develop the renewable system in Mam Rashan that will increase its energy security. Our software not only makes the renewable system more energy efficient, but it will enable the camp to schedule the delivery of electricity. By prioritizing energy needs, like the clinic and school, we hope the renewable system can be a means for community empowerment.”

Diesel is an exhaustible source of energy and in order to carry on operations smoothly even in its absence, there needs to be an alternative. The Diesel Exhaust Fluid Market report published by Coherent market Insights, discusses the exhaustible energy in brief.
