Access from EThOS:
Rural electrification has centred mainly on the extension of grid supplies. However, grid extensions are not always viable for some communities due to either their smals size or location. Developments in renewable energy systems have lead to increased of renewable-diesel hybrid systems to provide power to small remote communities where grid connections are not viable. The selection of the rural hybrid energy system is influenced by the load, availability of renewable resources and system operating costs.
