Energy resources from a hybrid system
The electricity and cooking fuel needs of the village can be provided by a hybrid system of photovoltaics, an anaerobic biomass digester and a small-scale gas engine.
The load estimation takes into account the needs of different households and public buildings in nine months of summer and three months of winter. Load profiles also vary throughout the day, and peak load is estimated at 22.37 kW, with average load demand 291.48 kWh/day in summer and 153.45 kWh/day in winter. Gas needs per day are estimated at 0.4 m3/ person, with a total of 238 m3/day for the village.
