Hybrid Energy Solutions: Powering Progress with Innovation

Ring Power, in partnership with Caterpillar, leads the energy transition in North and Central Florida by offering Cat® Hybrid Energy Solutions. These innovative systems fully integrate renewable energy, battery storage, and conventional power generation. They are engineered to deliver increased energy efficiency, optimal total cost of ownership, and enhanced stability for power systems.

Microgrids are self-sufficient energy systems that can operate independently or in conjunction with the electrical grid. They are capable of generating their own power, traditionally via generator sets or turbines. Hybrid energy solutions (HES) take this concept further by combining power sources such as wind or solar with conventional diesel- or gas-fueled generation, and employing energy storage to add stability and enable further energy cost reduction.

Ring Power supports your hybrid energy project with a turnkey approach—covering installation, regular maintenance, upgrades, financing, warranties, service agreements, and parts availability. We customize our hybrid energy technologies to meet the specific needs of your business and industry, ensuring optimal performance and reliability.

Cat® hybrid energy solutions facilitate the seamless integration of renewable energy with traditional power sources, such as on-site Cat generator sets. These generators serve as a reliable backup when renewable resources are unavailable. Ring Power offers Cat diesel generators that can run on biofuels, which have been accommodated for over a decade, helping to reduce lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions.

Solar energy, when integrated into a hybrid microgrid, enhances resilience by converting sunlight into direct current, powering microgrids with high-efficiency photovoltaic (PV) modules. These modules provide consistent power and feature technology to detect disruptions, allowing operation in island mode during outages.

Energy storage systems are crucial in hybrid microgrids, providing short-term backup power. Ring Power offers on-site energy storage to stabilize transient loads, supply and absorb AC power, enhance renewable energy utilization, and shift energy usage to optimal times. Stored energy can also be used for grid services, offering financial benefits.

The Cat ECS 400 control system and Cat RAM remote monitoring provide comprehensive oversight and management of the power resources, ensuring security, efficiency, and reliability.

Caterpillar is committed to making sustainable progress possible by integrating renewable power with smart energy storage and conventional power generation. This approach provides efficient power that can be produced where and when it’s needed, increasing renewable energy source utilization and further enabling energy cost reduction.
