Abstract

The core perspective of the work is to represent the design and economic feasibility analysis of an autonomous hybrid energy system for rural Bangladesh. To overcome the many of the environmental crises our country faces today result from our fossil fuel dependency. These impacts include global warming, air quality deterioration, oil spills, or acid rain. In view of this, the hybrid energy systems are becoming popular in remote area for power generation applications due to advancements in renewable energy technologies and substantial rise in prices of petroleum products. A rural village in Narayangonj (Araihazar), Dhaka, Bangladesh (23°36.9'N, 90°30.2'E), has been taken as the case study. The proposed hybrid system consists of solar system (PV) and biogas with the battery and backup diesel generator in case of emergency. This research also attracts the future developments, which have the prospective to increase the economic attractiveness of such systems and their acceptance by the user.
