Our Solutions

1.Photovoltaics:

To enable the effective and efficient integration of growing shares of small distributed PV systems into the grid, the idea of PV producers becoming “prosumers” – both producers and consumers of energy – is gaining ground while “self-consumption” is becoming a major driver for the installation of small distributed PV systems. To facilitate this to happen, Energiring addresses:

  1. Suggestion of solutions for innovative system-integration and power-management for households/larger buildings (in general small distributed PV systems) including storage, particularly addressing the impact of self-consumption on the operation of the grid and the value of PV electricity when aggregated and offered to the wholesale market;
  2. Based on these solutions, elaboration of business and management models, including cost-benefit analysis and assessing economic feasibility for the Iranian urban landscape.

 

2.Heat Pumps:

Heating and cooling represents almost 50% of the final Iran’s energy consumption while cooling demand is increasing. As the cost associated with the purchase and installation of heat pumps remains an obstacle for a wider penetration on the market, Energiring provides:

  1. Identification of the most promising cost reduction options for wide scenarios of deployment;
  2. Development of solutions for innovative system-integration and integrated power management for household/industrial buildings.

 

3.Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) & Solar Thermal Energy Plants:

The method of functioning of CSP plants is similar to that of the photovoltaic solar energy plants. The extra addition in these concentrating power plants is that they make use of mirrors and lenses in order to capture energy from the rays of the sun. The light from the sun will be directed towards the photovoltaic cells and they will be converted into heat energy. Usually very big organizations make use of these concentrating power plants for utilizing solar energy.

Energiring can also deliver the solar thermal energy plants which will be used for creating solar generated heaters for different goals:

  • Heating water and also as an indoor heating system like swimming pools (low temperature),
  • Cooking purposes and also for drying clothes (low temperature),
  • Heating up the inside of homes as well as office buildings (medium temperature), and
  • Generating the electricity which is needed for everyday uses in homes and offices (high temperature).

 

 4.Wind Energy:

By increasing the market share of wind energy systems, Energiring is going to address one of the following specific challenges in Iranian market:

  • Developing wind maps, spatial planning methodologies, and tools for new onshore/offshore wind and repowering of old wind farms taking into account environmental and social impacts,
  • Adoption of the latest developments in wind energy technology and identifying the bottlenecks for further deployment in Iran and the regulations which limit the adoption of technological innovation and their deployment possibilities,
  • Increasing the social acceptance and support for wind energy specifically in wind energy scarce regions.

 

5.Geothermal Energy:

Geothermal energy for both electricity generation and heating -direct use- has been produced commercially since 1913, and for decades on the scale of hundreds of MW, and the utilization has increased rapidly during the last three decades. Nevertheless, the way in which a geothermal resource is utilized will ultimately determine whether or not the utilization is sustainable and affordable. Energiring aims at proposing small modular and cost efficient geothermal power plants, and has solutions for 5-MW plants involving providing their technology and EPC service. 

We are going to increase the understanding of the socio-economic dimension of geothermal energy in Iran, and to promote change in community responses to new and existing geothermal installations. Different technologies and possible technological solutions, with particular reference to reinjection of incondensable gases in deep geothermal plants, are key elements of the environmental and social impact assessment. Specific challenges related to deep and shallow geothermal energy require separate considerations. Risk management strategies and adequate technology selection, for example induced seismicity or emission reduction should be addressed, when relevant.

 

 6.Sustainable Fuels:

To facilitating the market roll-out of liquid advanced biofuels and liquid renewable alternative fuels, the main challenge is to enable commercialization of advanced biofuels to help using in small scale distributed generation and GHG reduction. Energiring makes the latest technologies available for cost-efficient biofuels production from both landfill and biogas.



Our Approaches

We believe that being environmentally friendly is not a luxury but an economic and social responsibility. As renewable energy is an attractive alternative in today’s environmentally conscious global economy, many energy companies claim that they are providing their clients with environmental-friendly and cost-effective renewable energy system (RES) solutions. This is much more important resource for the countries located in Middle East and North of Africa thanks to many sunny days during the year.

 

Energy from renewable sources can help cut the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and reduce your carbon (CO2) footprint. Energiring assists companies/organizations/people in determining whether renewable energy-related alternatives are viable options for them. These are a few options we explore:

  1. Site design, procurement and implementation of RES— Energiring helps the businesses to develop and implement renewable energy projects in the large and medium scales. Options may include solar power (PV and other types), wind power, geothermal energy, biofuel power generation using gasifiers, and microwave technology.
  2. Renewable energy certificates— Energiring can help you earn carbon credits through renewable energy purchases and projects that reduce GHGs in the atmosphere. These renewable energy certificates can be banked, sold, or traded.
