Rural Electrification Using Hybrid Solar and Biogas System in Phulwaria Village, Bihar: A Case Study
- 202 Downloads
The economic development plans in the developing as well as developed countries have accelerated the consumption of electrical energy. Consequently, the gap between the demand and supply for power is widening around the world. In the present scenario, power generation by renewable energy sources has gained significant importance. In India, approximately 70% of the people live in rural parts where power from grid supply is scanty. This paper investigates and proposes a viable option for supplying power to Phulwaria village in Bihar by adopting hybrid energy systems (HESs) of solar photovoltaic (SPV) and biogas to produce electricity. Here, combined heat and power (CHP) model is used for biogas where the wasted heat is used to heat water and supply clean drinking water.
