Why clients choose us?
Hybrid Energy Solutions (HES) is a Project Coordination Company established in 2009 for primarily focusing on renewable project development needs in Asia. Whether we are working with the government or directly with utilities and project owners in developing hydro, wind, geothermal, solar, landfill gas hybrid (wind solar combined as a storage energy system) or biomass projects, we bring ideas, knowledge and a fresh perspective.
Our attention to detail and our analytics will make any project achievable. We know how to get things done in the ground of developing countries. To get to the right energy mix, we get our hands dirty (literally) and fully explore the immediate needs of our customers, clients and partners, while paying close attention to overall sustainability, long-term interests and future energy demands of the Asian countries. To bring in renewable energy to developing countries, the hardest thing to do is to find funding sources to invest in the communities.
Our goal, and what we thrive on, is to bring energy solutions that meet the needs in developing countries through hard work and expertise. There is a growing expectation for clean energy sources that must be met with well thought out, long-term and responsible answers. Balancing this expectation alongside the need for project financing happens through inventive planning and mindful execution that takes both aspects into account. It is more than possible to achieve cost-effective, efficient and productive results, while respecting the environment.
We only work with organizations that are ready to embrace natural energy solutions with wind and solar power developments. From financing to planning, building and long-term facility operation, we know how to create, complete and maintain natural energy projects. To every development, we bring extensive experience, as well as a wide network of partners and consultants. Our approach allows us to deliver the exact expertise your project needs for a nimble and creative energy solution.
Our Services Include: Renewable Power Wind, Solar, Hydro, Hybrid and Waste to Energy Feasibility Studies Commissioning and Management Power Purchase Agreement Negotiation Environmental Permitting Site Identification & Land Agreement Negotiations Utility Connection Agreements Net Metering Implementation Management Financial Structuring Project Commissioning Support Funding Resource gathering Business plans submission to Lenders and Investors Support Power Plant Design Setup Implementer per Financing / Investor Requirement Construction Management
Key services we provide in Solid Waste to Energy (WTE) project development and the requirements: Feasibility Study (must be industry standard for lenders)Business Plan (must be developed on the feasibility study for lenders)Technology & Vendor Procurement Land for development of facilities and power plant Local Government and State licensing approval Power Purchase Agreement to Long-term Local Banking for startup financing We can deliver non-biased, independent work studies, feasibility studies and business plans for clients interested in converting municipal, industrial and agricultural waste materials as well as other materials into useful energy.
The disposal of waste materials has, from the earliest civilizations, been a burdensome problem. Today, as urban populations have increased, the problem has become acute. For decades, our only solution has been dumps and landfills, some employing incinerators, composting and many other means, none of which are satisfactory in either the short or long-term. These methods of waste disposal are unsanitary, polluting and dangerous.
Our consulting model will be delivering honest feasibility studies that are not beholden or slanted toward any manufacturer or technology. We know that the right kind of system and process for any given community, city or town will vary according to each of their specific requirements, capabilities, needs and expectations.
Every single detail must be taken into careful consideration when planning or suggesting a workable methodology. This is what we do and we do it exceptionally well. We understand the waste to energy and waste disposal processes and we carefully factor all the realities into our studies to provide solutions that are truly workable and very effective both in the short and long- term.
Key Issues in Asia we hope to overcome by getting project Owners off the ground
Solar and Wind Power or Hybrid Energy Plant Development
Solar and Wind Power or Hybrid Energy Plant Development
Contracting with a company that can implement your solar, wind or hybrid energy project from feasibility to completion is key to maximizing and projecting a true return on your investment. Solar system implementation is also critical to maximizing your return. This requires a cohesive approach for achieving financial benefits and system performance. Projects require the correct hardware and the best technology in place for it to be productive through its life-cycle. All phases must be coordinated with the various disciplines involved throughout every phase to deploy the highest quality system. Since 2009 we have been building partnerships with investment funds and implementation companies in order to expand our expertise and knowledge. With this knowledge, we are confident that we have the correct processes in place with the correct partners in place for any size of energy plant development to help project owners to achieve the best ROI throughout the life-cycle of a project.
Implementing the Right Energy Storage Technology:
Energy storage systems provide a wide array of technological approaches to managing our power supply to create a more resilient energy infrastructure and bring cost savings to utilities and consumers. To help understand the diverse approaches currently being deployed around the world, we have divided them into six main categories:
Solid State Batteries – a range of electrochemical storage solutions, including advanced chemistry batteries and capacitors
Flow Batteries – batteries in which the energy is stored directly in the electrolyte solution for a longer cycle life, and quick response times
Flywheels – mechanical devices that harness rotational energy to deliver instantaneous electricity
Compressed Air Energy Storage – utilizing compressed air to create a potent energy reserve
Thermal – capturing heat and cold to create energy on demand
Pumped Hydro-Power – creating large-scale reservoirs of energy with water
Molten Salt for Solar power plants – Solar Reserve is the industry leader in advanced solar thermal energy storage technology. Molten salt is used both as a heat transfer fluid (HTF) as well as a thermal energy storage medium.
Grid Modernization and Smart Grid
To develop the next generation of technologies, tools, and techniques for the efficient, resilient, reliable, and affordable delivery of electricity we continually monitor the leaders in these technologies. The HES partners manage programs related to modernizing the few nation’s power grids, including, but not limited to, grid scale energy storage, smart grid research and development and advanced technologies, such as solid-state transformers and power flow controllers that can optimize power delivery and enhance resilience (power electronics), complex interactive capabilities that can allow the system to respond to change (adaptive networks), intelligent communications and control systems, and new measurements, data analytics, and models that leverage the latest scientific advancements in mathematics and computation.
We can bring the appropriate partner with experience in working from the ground up; from development to upgrading to a modernized structure that helps utility intake production of energy from plants and distributes to consumers.

Solid Waste to Energy (WTE)
At Hybrid Energy Solutions (HES) We have multiple partner collaborations that guarantee project success from feasibility studies to implementation. Our project team includes subject experts who have been working in their fields since 1999 to develop WTE projects.
In WTE today the plasma arc technology along with advanced pyrolysis methodology has developed into a worldwide phenomenon.
Today, there is scarcely a city, town or municipality that remains unaware of the significant benefits of gasification of MSW (Municipal Solid Waste). We bring, to a WTE project, a wide spectrum of hands-on construction and design experience by implementing full-cycle recycling facilities and land fill gas to energy plants.
Achievements have been made in Solid Waste Management, worldwide, during the past few decades.
Solid waste management until now has only been a social responsibility of the corporate world or one of the services to be provided by the municipality and a non-priority for national governments.
There are many applications of Waste-to-Energy.
First, a country must build a processing plant to separate recyclable material from waste.
Then, from separation there are multiple applications to generate power and bio fuel (bio diesel) to palletization of waste to burning as fuel.
There is also an opportunity to sell processed trash; there are currently about ten nations buying processed waste for power generation.
Our approach is to help the governments or utility companies to establish True Waste Management processes where it’s not in place. To do this, the country needs to have the following:
- Material Processing Facility (process waste and remove recyclable material and treat waste)
- Transfer Station
- Energy from Waste Plant
A feasibility study will determine the best EFW (Energy from Waste) plant technology. We recommend focusing on the below, as it is the latest and fastest growing technology in the world.
Gasification is a process that converts organic or fossil fuel based carbonaceous materials into carbon monoxide, hydrogen and carbon dioxide. This is achieved by reacting the material at high temperatures (>700 °C), without combustion, with a controlled amount of oxygen and/or steam.
This is clearly thought to be the way of the future in both terms of efficiency and the environment. Gasification is a flexible and clean energy technology that can turn a variety of feedstock into energy, helping to reduce dependence on carbon-based energy sources providing a clean alternative source of electricity, fertilizers, fuels, and other useful by-products. Gasification converts almost any material into a useable and efficient gas (syngas). The syngas can be used to produce electricity directly, via gas turbines or used to produce liquid fuels, bio fuels, a substitute for natural gas (SNG), or hydrogen. There are more than 140 gasification plants operating worldwide. Nineteen of those plants are located in the United States. Worldwide gasification capacity is growing at a rapid pace with 80% of that growth occurring in Asia.
Gasification is an environmentally friendly solution to an environmental problem. The world is facing rapid growth in energy demand, persistently high-energy prices, and a challenge to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from power generation and manufacturing. No single technology or resource can solve the problem, but gasification can be part of the solution along with renewable power sources such as wind and energy efficiency programs.
Gasification can enhance the world energy portfolio while creating fewer air emissions, using less water, and generating less waste than most traditional energy technologies. Whether used for power generation, for production of substitute natural gas, or for production of a large number of energy intensive products, gasification has significant environmental benefits over conventional technologies.
- Gasification provides significant environmental benefits.
- Gasification plants produce significantly lower quantities of air pollutants.
- Gasification can reduce the environmental impact of waste disposal because it can use waste products as feedstock, generating valuable products from materials that would otherwise be disposed as wastes.
- Gasification byproducts are non-hazardous and are readily marketable.
- Gasification plants use significantly less water than traditional coal-based power generation, and can be designed so they recycle their process water, discharging none into the surrounding environment.
- Carbon dioxide (CO2) can be captured from an industrial gasification plant using commercially proven technologies. In fact, since 2000, the Great Plains Substitute Natural Gas plant in North Dakota has been capturing the same amount of CO2 as a 400 MW coal power plant would produce and sending that CO2 via pipeline to Canada for Enhanced Oil Recovery.
- Gasification offers the cleanest, most efficient means of producing electricity from coal and the lowest cost option for capturing CO2 from power generation, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.
Economic Benefits of Gasification:
- Gasification can compete effectively in high-price energy environments to provide power and products.
- Gasification can be used to turn lower-priced feedstock, such as petcock and coal, into very valuable products like electricity, substitute natural gas, fuels, chemicals, and fertilizers. For example, a chemical plant can gasify petcock or high sulfur coal instead of using high-priced natural gas, thereby reducing its operating costs.
- While a gasification power plant is capital intensive (like any very large manufacturing plant), its operating costs are potentially lower than conventional processes or coal-fired plants because gasification plants are more efficient and require less back-end pollution control equipment. With continued research and development efforts and commercial operating experience, the cost of these units will continue to decrease.
- Gasification offers wide fuel flexibility. A gasification plant can vary the mix of solid feedstock, or run on gas or liquid feedstock—giving it more freedom to adjust to the price and availability of its feedstock
- The ability to produce a number of high-value products at the same time (polygeneration) also helps a facility offset its capital and operating costs. In addition, the principal gasification byproducts (sulfur and slag) are readily marketable. For example, sulfur can be used as a fertilizer and slag can be used in roadbed construction or in roofing materials.
- A state-of-the-art gasification power plant with commercially available technology can perform with efficiency in a range of 38-41 percent. Technology improvements now in advanced testing will boost efficiency to significantly higher levels.
- Gasification can replace volatile natural gas as a fuel or a feedstock.
- Gasification can increase domestic investment and jobs in manufacturing industries that have recently been in decline because of high energy costs.
There are many companies producing gasification technologies. There are two main types of gasification; Pyrolysis and Plasma Arc Gasification.
Pyrolysis is a thermo chemical decomposition of organic material at elevated temperatures in the absence of oxygen. Pyrolysis typically occurs under pressure and at operating temperatures above 430 °C (800 °F). The word is coined from the Greek-derived elements pyr “fire” and lysis “separating”. Pyrolysis is a special case of thermolysis, and is most commonly used for organic materials. The Pyrolysis or gasification of wood, which starts at 200–300 °C (390–570 °F), and occurs naturally for example when vegetation comes into contact with lava in volcanic eruptions. In general, pyrolysis of organic substances produces gas and liquids leaving a solid residue richer in carbon content. Extreme pyrolysis, which leaves mostly carbon as the residue, is called carbonization.
PLASMA or PLASMA ARC Gasification:
Plasma arc gasification is a waste treatment technology that uses very powerful electrical energy creating extremely high temperatures by an electric arc. This is like a continuous lightning bolt and instantly breaks down all material into elemental gas and limited solid waste (slag), in a device called a plasma converter.
The process has been intended to be a net generator of electricity, depending upon the composition of input wastes, and to dramatically reduce the volumes of waste sent to landfills. Relatively high voltage, high current electricity is passed between two electrodes, spaced apart, creating an electrical arc. Inert gas under pressure is passed through the arc into a sealed container of waste material, reaching temperatures as high as 25,000 °F (13,900 °C) in the arc column. The temperature a few feet from the torch can be as high as 5,000–8,000 °F (2,760–4,427 °C).
At these temperatures, most types of waste are broken into basic elemental components in a gaseous form, and complex molecules are separated into individual atoms. The reactor operates at a slightly negative pressure, meaning that the feed system is complemented by a gaseous removal system, and later a solid removal system. Depending on the input waste (plastics tend to be high in hydrogen and carbon), gas from the plasma containment can be removed as syngas.
Other aspects of Waste Management is creating fuel pellets or briquette for burning as a fuel to develop energy.
Fuel Pellets from Solid Wastes
Palletization of municipal solid waste involves the processes of segregating, crushing, mixing high and low heat value organic waste material and solidifying it to produce fuel pellets or Briquette, also referred to as Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) or Process Engineered Fuel (PEF) or Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF).
Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) is a poor-quality fuel and its pre-processing is necessary to prepare fuel pellets to improve its consistency, storage and handling characteristics, combustion behavior and calorific value. Technological improvements are taking place in the realms of advanced source separation, resource recovery and production/utilization of recovered fuel in both existing and new plants for this purpose. There has been an increase in global interest in the preparation of Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) containing a blend of pre-processed MSW with coal suitable for combustion in pulverized coal and fluidized bed boilers.
Palletization of Urban Wastes
Palletization of municipal solid waste involves the processes of segregating, crushing, mixing high and low heat value organic waste material and solidifying it to produce fuel pellets or briquettes, also referred to as Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) or Process Engineered Fuel (PEF) or Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF). The process is essentially a method that condenses the waste or changes its physical form and enriches its organic content through removal of inorganic materials and moisture. The calorific value of RDF pellets can be around 4000 kcal/kg depending upon the percentage of organic matter in the waste, additives and binder materials used in the process.
The calorific value of raw MSW is around 1000 kcal/kg while that of fuel pellets is 4000 kcal/kg. On an average, about 15–20 tons of fuel pellets can be produced after treatment of 100 tons of raw garbage. Since palletization enriches the organic content of the waste through removal of inorganic materials and moisture, it can be a very effective method for preparing an enriched fuel feed for other thermo-chemical processes like pyrolysis/gasification, apart from incineration.
Pellets can be used for heating plant boilers and for the generation of electricity. They can also act as a good substitute for coal and wood for domestic and industrial purposes. The important applications of RDF in the Middle East are found in the following spheres:
● Cement kilns
● RDF power plants
● Coal-fired power plants
● Industrial steam/heat boilers
● Pellet stoves
The conversion of solid waste into briquettes provides an alternative means for environmentally safe disposal of garbage which is currently disposed of in non-sanitary landfills. In addition, the palletization technology provides yet another source of renewable energy, like that of biomass, wind, solar and geothermal energy. The emission characteristics of RDF are superior compared to that of coal with fewer emissions of pollutants like NOx, SOx, CO and CO2.
The Feasibility Study considers: (sample study is included in the packet)
INPUT: Disposition of local landfills:
● Is it the intention of the authorities for the new plant to eliminate local landfills or, will the plant be concerned only with the daily delivery of new waste materials?
● What will be the total daily quantity and substance of the materials to be delivered?
Type of waste:
● Will the waste materials delivered, include industrial, hazardous and agricultural waste to the plant?
● If so, in what frequency and quantity?
● How, when and by what means will deliveries be made to the facility?
● This is a complicated metric requiring considerable research.
● The facility needs to consider the future growth of the area (city and regional area) so as to allow for growth (increased input) over a period of twenty years.
● The study will deliver its findings to the client such that a five year financial projection will indicate the total overheads expressed by detailed line items for every category of expense contrasted against expected off-setting revenues.
● Revenues will be expressed as a function of generated KWH’s or in m3 of Syngas, factored at the desired rates. The figures will indicate break-even operations as well as expressing increasing graduations matching the inputted flows of materials to be gasified.
● Allowances will reflect the capacity of the plant which will match the expected growth of the serviced areas. Equally, consideration will be given to increasing overheads as well as increases in the cost of the generated power to the local power company(s).
● The client is expected to pay a fee to cover the cost of the Feasibility Study. From this we pay our expenses including, travel, the rental of office space and salaries to local personnel retained to assist in researching and obtaining the data to be used in the study. In general, it is expected that a period of 3 -4 months will be required to deliver the completed study.
A Business Plan is a detailed blueprint for building a given company. A business plan contains all that the Feasibility Study has plus specific time-lines, detailed budgets with monthly and seasonal forecasts, letters of intent, resumes of staff, background, competition, strengths & weaknesses, work-sheets and a full notation, appendix and all related and required documents that will be referenced as the company is being developed.
A well-written business plan will show what revenues can be expected and when to expect them, what overheads and expenses will need to be paid and exactly when they will be due. It will also show staffing levels and salaries along with costs of employment, sales levels with monthly and seasonal trends, setup costs, building/office costs, utility and telephone costs, legal, insurance and accounting costs, office furniture and supplies costs and a myriad of other cost projections as well as legal requirements and conformation to regulations.
In addition to the revenue projections and costs, the business plan will feature sections on demographics, objectives, expansion plans, contingency exercises, product and services market introductions, regulatory requirements and the laws of City, State and Federal governments relating to the business/project and much more. A well-written business plan can help maximize potential and minimize overheads, liabilities and risk associated with any project.
Over the years we have written many feasibility studies and business plans. We are able to offer hands-on assistance and support from day one until the project is complete.
For any new project the single document that means the difference between a positive or negative outcome is 100%, the Business Plan. If the plan is well and truly written and the lender and his advisors can see clearly in acceptable format, exactly how the facility is going to operate, make the loan repayments and avoid default, that project is far ahead.
The plan has to show, in clear understandable terminology and acceptable, recognizable format, a minimum of a five year, month by month financial projection reflecting every possible overhead contrasted against variable revenues.
The plan has to introduce the key officers and staff and contain detailed resumes of the principals. The plan has to show in detail how the facility will serve its proposed markets and allow the readers to see that the management team indeed understands the mechanics of the business.
A WTE project is exactly equal to the sum of its parts and no more. The plan must show how the facility intends to operate and maintain the technology, where and how it will be maintained and a detailed list of equipment that will be provided. There needs to be comments and descriptions of spaces, tooling and storage. The plan needs to show exactly where the facility will be located and how the operating team will be retained and trained along with what each level of staff and management will be paid. There has to be a very detailed set of projections indicating the number of employees that you will have to retain both initially and as the operation grows.
You will have to have letters of intent included in the appendix from all the relevant parties. For example, the appendices will require letters from the various civil authorities under which the plant will be operating indicating that they have reviewed and are in accord with the plans. A letter from an insurance broker is often an additional requirement. In fact, for every statement in the plan there has to be back-up documentation in the appendix.
The plan has to detail every single area of the new company so that lenders and bankers can have confidence that the management team does, in fact, have a very clear idea of exactly what is required for success. Absent a plan that reflects all of the above, the project will have little or no chance of being judged loan worthy.
