Hybrid power plants

Hybrid power plants combine various fuels – gas is the classic example – with renewables in order to make the power plants not only more responsive to load fluctuations but to increase their efficiency.
There are hybrid power plants that use several renewable energy sources in combination. Wind and biomass supplement each other well: if there is a lull in the wind, it is not possible to generate electricity with a wind turbine. However, it is then possible to resort to biomass, which is used to generate the necessary electricity.
Hybrid power plants therefore ensure that consistently stable energy volumes can be generated that always meet the electricity requirements. If solar energy and natural gas are combined with each other, this enables electricity to be generated at night or when there is heavy cloud.
