Abstract

Electrification of remote areas with the help of standalone power supply systems, also known as islanded microgrids, is a complex and multi-dimensional problem. This problem needs to address and consider diverse factors such as economic, technical, environmental, social and political. This study has used an analytical hierarchy process-based multi-criteria decision-making approach to obtain a more robust and universally convincing plan for remote area microgrids. To this end, a survey has been conducted from worldwide academics, industry experts and consultants. The study reveals that the economic criterion is the most important factor versus other factors.
