Development of Hybrid Renewable Energy System for a Rural Site in Uttarakhand
Renewable energy sources like solar and wind are never-ending, freely available and environment friendly. These renewable sources have capability to provide solutions to the power problems that are currently being faced by the developing countries like India. The solar and wind energy are not available all the time, therefore, the combined implementation of solar, wind and other renewable sources are in demand for generating electricity. In this paper, efforts have been made by the author to develop a hybrid renewable energy system (HRES) using solar-PV and wind energy for a district in Uttarakhand state. Further, the paper describes the challenges and future developments, which have capability to improve the attractiveness of such energy systems. These renewable energy resources not only deal with the power problems but also assure a green and sustainable planet.
