  1. 1. Unlocking the Potential of Solar-Hydro Hybrid Solutions: Feasibility and Economic Analysis

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Industriell elektroteknik och automation

    Author : Måns Rosberg; [2023]
    Keywords : Hydropower; Solarpower; Hybrid power production; Solar-hydro hybrid power; Reservoir storage; Energy storage; Pumped hydro power; Floating PV; PV; Photovoltaics; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Hybrid solutions that combine multiple renewable energy sources, such as solar power and hydro power, are gaining popularity as a means of meeting the growing energy demands while minimising environmental impacts, but also as an opportunity of connecting solar power plants to the grid in areas where this might not be possible unless large investments are made. This master thesis aims to evaluate the feasibility and economic viability of integrating solar panels with an existing grid connection point at a hydro power plant, along with the introduction of an energy storage solution using a hydro power plant reservoir.

  2. 2. Pathways towards universal access to electricity in West Africa : Case study of Mali and Senegal

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för industriell teknik och management (ITM)

    Author : Vittorio Bozzo; [2023]
    Keywords : Universal electricity access; Senegal; Mali; OnSSET; GIS; PV mini-grid; Universell tillgång till el; Senegal; Mali; OnSSET; GIS; PV mininät;

    Abstract : Despite the vast solar potential in both Mali and Senegal, the electricity access in both countries remains one of the lowest in the world. The main problem is represented by the disparity between rural and urban settlements. In Senegal, the electricity access for rural areas was lower than 50%, while in Mali was around 35%. READ MORE

  3. 3. Battery-Storage Investment for a Power System with High Variable Renewable Energy Output

    University essay from Stockholms universitet/Institutionen för data- och systemvetenskap

    Author : Elva Yunyan Wallimann; [2023]
    Keywords : decision and risk analysis; energy economics; capacity expansion; operations research; utility-scale battery;

    Abstract : Climate change is posing significant threats to human beings. Deploying renewable energy sources in electricity generation is widely accepted as an indispensable part of the solution to climate change. The vast potential lies in variable renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind. READ MORE

  4. 4. Pumped-Storage Hydroelectricity for a Sustainable Electricity Transition

    University essay from KTH/Numerisk analys, NA

    Author : Teodor Elmfeldt; [2023]
    Keywords : Pumped-storage hydroelectricity; Electric grid; Computational Mathematics; Juktan Power Station; Applied mathematics; Power system; Sustainability; Pumpkraft; Elnät; Beräkningsmatematik; Juktan Kraftverk; Tillämpad mate- matik; Elkraftteknik; Hållbarhet;

    Abstract : This master thesis explores the application of Pumped-Storage Hydroelectricity (PSH) within an electricity market characterised by a substantial share of renewable and intermittent electricity production. The purpose of PSH is to enhance the alignment of supply with demand by storing energy at electricity surplus and releasing it during shortage. READ MORE

  5. 5. Study on feasibility of small-scale pumped hydro storage- A case study in Sweden

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för energivetenskaper

    Author : Prashant Niroula; [2023]
    Keywords : energy storage; pumped hydropower; electricity market; investment; new technologies; feasibility; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The European union has been aggressively pushing forward with policies favoring renewable sources of energy. As a result, the share of intermittent renewables in the European power grid is rising and is expected to grow even more in the coming decade. The Swedish energy agency also forecast huge growth in wind power. READ MORE
