Abstract

At present there are several power sources which are suitable for the provision of power to remote communities. They include the diesel motor driven generator and various renewable energy sources and equipment. This paper discusses both the various characteristics of these systems and worldwide prospects including:

The effect of various international initiatives such as "Power for the World"(Palz 1993) on the cost of photovoltaics.

The effect of these international programs on the future for PV systems.

How they will ultimately effect Remote Area Power Supplies(RAPS).

The use of display RAPS systems set up by the Commonwealth Department of Primary Industries and Energy's(DPIE) Renewable Energy Promotion Program(REPP) to transfer this technology to remote communities Australia wide will also be presented. The West Australian display located at Murdoch University Energy Research Institute will be described.
