Analyzing Drivers and Barriers for Renewable Energy Integration to Small Islands Power Generation – Tapping a Huge Market Potential
By Enrico Howe - Reiner Lemoine Institut
- The implementation of regulatory frameworks (e.g. feed-in tariff) or any other support from the governments was taken into consideration.
- A unique regulatory framework for islands should be supported. The current ones do no work perfectly. The share of renewable energies is increased by incentives such as feed-in tariff (no matter how bad the tariff is, it always helps to increase the RE share).
By Bhupendra Shakya - Renewable Energy for Rural Livelihood Programme AEPC
- Handling the load of the MHP: the challenge is the load capacity, during the day only 3 or 4 MHP have to run, not all of them.
- If a connection to the grid is present, then no load management would be needed. The hydro plants could be controlled with valves and control units that depend on the actual load, instead of controlling them manually. – The load is being controlled with the synchronizable electronic load controller (ELC), not the flow.
