CIRCUTOR's Universal Energy Dispenser won the award for the most innovative unit at the OFF-GRID EXPERTS AWARDS.
On 25 and 26 September, the OFF-GRID EXPERTS AWARDS were presented in the German city of Memmingen. These awards recognise companies, institutions and individuals in the area of self-consumption installations isolated from the grid.
CIRCUTOR's Universal Energy Dispenser, developed in collaboration with TTA – Trama TecnoAmbiental, was recognised as the most innovative product for self-consumption solutions isolated from the grid.
It is a single-phase meter with an electrical energy dispenser for controlling the demand. The electrical energy dispenser function is based on the patented concept of daily available energy, which allows users to intelligently manage the energy available in networks with limited or pulsing generation, such as the energy available from renewable energy sources.
This makes it the ideal unit for microgrids in rural environments with solar, wind or other sources of renewable energy.
The dispenser has already been used successfully in projects in Africa, where each energy connection in homes, small industrial users and schools is billed separately.
Example of application in Chad (Africa):
