  1. 1. Techno-economic study for a 50 MW PV plant in Nigeria

    University essay from Högskolan Dalarna/Energiteknik

    Author : Jacob Kelly; [2021]
    Keywords : Photovoltaics; monofacial; bifacial; fixed mounting; single-axis tracking; inverter loading ratio; utility PV plant; solar farm; LCOE optimisation; Nigeria;

    Abstract : As part of Nigeria’s drive to increase electricity production capacity and shift to renewable sources, a new 50 MW photovoltaic (PV) plant is proposed for a town in north-west Nigeria. Rather than using conventional monofacial modules and fixed mounting, it is of interest to consider a selection of new technologies which are attracting growing attention in the global utility PV market.

  3. 3. On the Market Potential of Modular Stirling CSP Systems With Storage in the MENA

    University essay from KTH/Kraft- och värmeteknologi

    Author : Youssef Benmakhlouf Andaloussi; [2018]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Given the intermittent nature of renewable energy sources, integrated storage solutions are necessary to accomplish the energy shift necessary for sustainable development. In the case of solar, PV-BESS tend to be highly capital intensive, especially for long storage hours most needed to guarantee stable electricity production day and night. READ MORE


    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Dimitrios Liapodimitris; [2017]
    Keywords : Wind; Energy; Offshore; Maintenance; Optimisation; Optimization; Vessels; O M;

    Abstract : Wind power has been a leading energy source in the renewable energy sector. The offshore wind power industry is rapidly growing, having the advantages of great wind resources, with minimum impact on residential areas; however, the high O&M costs add significantly to the LCOE, and present a challenge to the project developers and operators.
