We have probably all read of hybrid cars and buses powered by a combination of petrol or diesel with batteries. The same approach to making electricity is being taken in the operation of hybrid power plants. Such plants often combine renewables, such as solar or wind power with fossil fuel generation. They are designed to overcome the intermittency of modern renewable energy.

However, still in its infancy, the global market is forecast to reach $1.92 billion by 2019. [i]  This is facilitated by increasingly productive renewable technology and falling costs.[ii]  These plants are to be found as stand-alone power systems in urban and remote areas, particularly in developing countries where, very often, they augment expensive diesel with solar or wind power. By 2020, combined solar and diesel plants will account for just over half of the world’s hybrid plants.[iii] To read more https://www.docuenergy.com/a-new-future-with-hybrid-power-plants/
