Hybrid power describes the combination of a power producer and the means to store that power in an energy storage medium.
In power engineering, the term 'hybrid' describes a combined power and energy storage system. It does not mean a "method," such as the popular use of hybrid to mean a vehicle like the Toyota Prius.
Examples of power producers used in hybrid power are photovoltaics, wind turbines, generators that use fuel.
Examples of energy storage media are batteries or hydrogen (for later use in fuel cells).
