GRIPS finances, owns and operates required renewable hybrid assets and supplies the energy on a “pay-per-use basis” to its customers in other words, the energy customer has not to finance or invest into the system. Their customers sign a power purchase agreement, and pay just for the electricity supplied or sign a lease agreement and pay the monthly lease - based on the hybrid system configuration grid independent power supply is possible (mitigation of load shedding, or full island systems).

Holzenergie Wegscheid GmbH produces energy from wood. Their wood carburetor plants produce large energy volumes using only wood chips. The wood chips are dried and cleaned of small parts in the screen system. A conveyor screw transports the wood chips into the supply container that feeds it into the carburetor in a controlled manner. The wood is turned into gas there. The filter system cleans the fine particles from the gas, which is then sent into the gas cooler. Perfectly prepared, and now used as fuel for the gas engine of the plant.
