Energy Efficiency Infrastructures.


Energy saving and the development of new energy sources are the only means that modern-day society possess to maintain a responsible yet successful level of development while avoiding irreversible damage to our planet.


In order to accomplish this, experts are now turning their attention to naturally occurring elements in search of an answer: the sun, the wind, water from rivers and oceans and naturally-occurring residues from beneath the earth’s surface may all play a role.

These types of resources are naturally recurring, they are obtained in periodic manners which do not contribute to the Greenhouse Effect, they do not leave behind significant residual effects and they help bring the production source closer to the consumer.

 


In addition, they help strengthen energy independence, create new employment and are also less expensive than traditionally used energy.

The above-mentioned characteristics are some that best define the renewable energy sources that we have within our reach, occurring in a variety of forms:  wind power, solar power, biomass, hydropower and geothermal power.  Global Warming is now recognized by governing bodies all over the world and the use of renewable energy sources represent a possible solution to the ever-worsening consequences we are facing in relation to the environment.   When compared with the limited and contaminating nature of traditional energy sources, renewable energy sources constitute a beneficial system of safer, cleaner, gentler and more independent energy sources. In addition, renewable energy sources permit considerable efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

 

Photovoltaic Infrastructures.
 

maat Green executes, commercializes and finances photovoltaic installations with the latest innovations available on the market, at a cost always adjusted to the needs of the client.


The general lines of business are: execution of projects, handling of permits/licenses, elaboration of projects, environmental studies, self- promotion and the sale of turnkey photovoltaic plants, installation of solar gardens as requested by promoters and investors, rooftop installations, maintenance, insurance and guarantees, guarantee of power for panels over a period of 25 years, control and monitoring of installations, financing and profitability. 

 


The technology of maat Green utilizes CTS Module Technology developed by First Solar obtaining profitability up to 16% higher than that registered with silicon-based technologies.

 

Solar Thermal Infrastructures.

A system which best uses the energy obtained from solar rays and uses this energy in the form of heat. The sun heats a detainer or solar collector, transmitting the energy to a fluid--in most cases water--, which is then used directly or ends up in a storage deposit for later use. The area of R+D of maat Green develops technology in fields of solar cooling for the production of thermal energy.

 

Special capacity for energy storage and provision of heating and cooling, which allows for a reduction in the accumulated volume of inertia in the storage deposit. 

Intelligent energy management.

By means of a detailed control of development, the installation maintains itself sensitized. Based on the relationship between the availability of and demand for energy, the Power Station operates with a singular objective: obtaining the maximum output of the system. Communication module (acquisition and visualization of data in real-time and by remote access). 

In addition, we are experts in projects related with low-temperature industrial installations and the sale of energy for large consumers of Sanitary Hot Water (SHW) such as hotels, residences, hospitals or sports complexes.
 

Geotermal Infrastructures.

 

Geotermal energy is the heat originating from the inside of the earth that regulates the dynamic of geological phenomenon on a planetary scale. 


The term "geothermic energy" refers to any portion of the Earth's heat that can be recuperated for industrial use.

A Geotermal system is constituted by three principal elements:

- a heat source,
- a reservoir and
- a fluid, the means by which the heat is
  transferred.
 

 


The heat source can be a magmatic substance at a very high temperature (>600º C), located at relatively superficial depths (5-10 km) or perhaps in low-system temperatures, settings where the normal geothermic gradient can provide thermal energy at sufficient depths.

The reservoir is a volume of permeable hot rocks by means of which the circulating fluids can extract heat. Geothermic fluid is water, in the majority of cases of meteoric origin, whether it is in the liquid phase or vapor phase, depending upon temperature and pressure.

maat Green has fine-tuned a new technology for a Geotermal Power Station for the production of electricity and heat on the basis of thermal waters at temperatures between 100 and 150º C.

maat Green’s technology brings together teams for the development of those technological and scientific investigations necessary to address the start-up of a viable and sustainable Geothermic Power Station in collaboration with universities such and centers of investigation and development).
