Today, the Opex model is a well-established, mainstream business and is no longer just a good-to-have product, it is a must-have product for large-scale commercial and industrial consumers of energy. In this context, the market is rapidly shifting from only solar or wind power to a hybrid model. The new generation of product-as-a-service is wind-solar-hybrid-as-a-service.
Combining wind and solar power is a great solution for consumers who want to increase the capacity utilisation. A wind-solar hybrid arrangement enables a stable and consistent source of power as compared to a standalone solar PV system that generates power during daylight hours or a standalone wind power system that generates power mainly during the evening/night.
A wind-solar hybrid arrangement is thus able to generate power round-the-clock, with reduced variability and enhanced efficiency.
