    Renewable energy alternatives

    Cement is an energy- and carbon fuel-intensive industry. As yields-per-ton continue to decline, and more raw material needs to be moved per unit of product, energy has become a significant cost factor. 

    • Solutions

      Technology and solutions needed to fully optimize energy usage through energy efficiency, energy management, renewable energy, and new energy technologies

      Our hybrid generation photo-voltaic systems, creating a hybrid system architecture that addresses the most economical energy mix.

    • Value Proposition

      In high irradiation areas, a low cost of energy (LCOE) can be achieved by Solar PV, making it affordable:

      • Solar PV is scalable, as plants are designed based on standardized building blocks.
      • Solar power systems can be built quickly, even in difficult climates.
      • Power can be produced where it is needed, and without transmission line losses.
      • Solar can be combined with diesel gen-sets and battery systems to form a micro-grid that does not rely on the primary grid.
    • Differentiation
