Mongolian engineers create a residential hybrid energy system

By M.OYUNGEREL

Mongolian engineers at Organic Energy Group and Green City Association announced on February 26 that they have created a  hybrid energy system that increases residential energy efficiency.
Organic Energy Group and Green City Association started creating the system last June to decrease the use of coal, save on residential energy expenses, and decrease air pollution.
The system can distribute power in different ways, depending on whether it gets its energy from renewable resources or from electricity.
“It takes 14,380 kilowatts of energy per year to heat a ger with five walls, and those households pay 301,000 MNT annually to the Ulaanbaatar Electricity Distribution Network. By using this equipment, the cost of power per kilowatt can reach 25 MNT, which means that households would only have to pay 63,000 MNT annually to the Ulaanbaatar Electricity Distribution Network,” said Kh.Unur-Otgon, one of the project’s engineers.
The engineers believe that households will stop using coal and start using the hybrid energy system if electricity prices can be dropped to six times less than what they are paying today.

The following is a short interview with the head of Organic Energy Group, O.Ganbold, about the system they created.

When did your team start building the hybrid energy system?

Two years ago, we had an idea to combat air pollution using energy, and that’s when we started researching. Last June, we started building the hybrid energy system. In the first stage, our energy efficiency increased three to six times.
The second stage will be announced soon. In that stage, we will take solar power and generate power frequently. It won’t require additional electricity, power, or oil. It only requires two minutes of solar charging for use, and the collected energy will be converted inside the system’s voltage optimizer.
The system we currently have takes in three kilowatts of power and converts it to 20 kilowatts. It is designed to work without the need of additional energy resources.

What are the economic benefits?

Energy costs will drop by however much energy the system can optimize. In other words, people will not have to burn coal when heating becomes cheaper if they use this equipment.
We no longer have to connect power lines to areas that are far from central power sources. It will solve air pollution and soil pollution problems. The engineers have calculated that the system will generate 20, 50, and 100 kilowatts of power. So if we feed the first transformer with power, the others will be able to operate on that.
Our goal is to create a source of power that is cheaper than coal. Coal technology is getting more advanced, so we can use coal to refine fuel, rather than burning it.
Initially, Mongolian scientists and engineers have created hybrid equipment that optimizes power. Later, I hope we create many things that make the world proud.

You said you received cooperation offers from foreign countries?

We received offers from China and Japan. But it will take quite a lot of time to accept their offers and implement them. Anyhow, we will decide what to do when the patent is approved for international classification.
But either way, we will only accept an offer if it benefits Mongolia.
