Off-grid solar photovoltaic mini-grid power supply, demand and analysis of consumer behaviour

The presentation aims to bridge the knowledge gap of distributed energy generation to electrify rural communities and measure economic parameters for a sustainable energy solution. The syntheses of energy data collected for analysis enable optimal configuration for energy dispatch of the mini-grid. The essence of the hybrid mini-grid implementation was to provide electricity for basic household needs. The project was developed as the primary service delivery for a remote rural community, thereby creating a framework for the rollout of mini-grids for off-grid electrification.
