Mini-grids: the right solution to empower the sustainable development of rural areas.
Bringing clean and reliable energy means much more than providing electricity.
Thanks to the experience of 70+ years of operation in the power electronics industry and the know-how in designing complete solutions for industrial operators, FRIEM has developed a comprehensive line of products for Mini-grid applications that have been already installed and used with successful results.
Mini-grids are redefining the concept of sustainable growth in remote areas being a practical and cost-effective electricity solution for customers and communities that do not have access to the electric distribution network or that are fed by expensive and polluting Diesel Generators.
A Mini-grid is a small-scale electricity network fed by renewable energy sources, typically Solar PV. The generated electricity is supplied – directly or indirectly via batteries – to clients who are connected to this mini-grid electricity network. They can supply electricity for a localised group of consumers including commercial & industrial activities, households, institutions and hospitals. Compared to individual customer systems, mini-grids may provide an enhanced service level to ensure the continuous operation and sustainability of the system.
