Calgary-based Global Thermoelectric, which continues to set the world standard in remote power has introduced the GlobalSolarHybrid system - which relies primarily on the sun's energy to generate power, but uses Global Thermoelectric's bedrock technology, a Thermoelectic Generator (TEG), in a backup capacity.

The GlobalSolarHybrid system represents the seamless, harmonic marriage of two distinct technologies - and is just the solution that companies in the oil and gas, telecommunications, electric utilities, and security and surveillance industries have been seeking.

"This is not new technology, but very smart deployment of existing technology. We've had all sorts of customers in the past five years who are under pressure to use green technology, but are disappointed with the reliability of their solar systems," says Bruce Taylor, President of Global Thermoelectric. "We listened to our customers, and gave them the answer. The GlobalSolarHybrid solution uses solar power at the maximum amount available, with a TEG as a backup. We gave them what they're asking for. It's a green solution, and it's reliable - the best of both worlds." While pure solar power is commonly seen as the ultimate green solution, many companies have found that photovoltaic systems are not always feasible for mission-critical equipment. Reliability is not guaranteed, especially during the winter months when shorter daylight hours, dense cloud, shadowed terrain, and snow cover interfere with a PV system's power generation process.

The GlobalSolarHybrid system, on the other hand, ensures bulletproof, 24/7/365 operation for applications such as wellhead monitoring equipment, supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), cathodic protection, and communications equipment.

The GlobalSolarHybrid system is backed up by a TEG that operates on natural gas or liquefied petroleum gas (LPG). It has significantly lower fuel use and greenhouse gas emissions than most other power generation technologies, and has a smaller environmental footprint than many pure solar systems, since it uses fewer PV panels and batteries, and extends the life of those batteries.

"Pure solar power has a mystique about it but can be unreliable," says Global Thermoelectric's Director of Product Line Management, Dennis Prediger. "By marrying these two technologies, we are able to draw on a guaranteed energy supply. And we've optimized and standardized the product to help make it affordable for our customers."
