Small-scale photovoltaic-powered reverse osmosis (PVRO) desalination plants can provide fresh water to remote communities that do not have sufficient natural sources. The technical feasibility of such systems is well-established and the economics for specific locations have been addressed. Recently, generalized methods to evaluate their economic feasibility(More)
ab s t r ac t Small-scale photovoltaic-powered reverse osmosis (PVRO) desalination plants can provide fresh water to remote communities that do not have sufficient natural sources. For these systems to be practical, they must be both technically and economically feasible. This paper presents a research program that is focused on improving the feasibility of(More)
A B S T R A C T Solar-powered agricultural irrigation is an attractive application of renewable energy. However, to be practical it must be both technically and economically feasible. Here, a method is presented for calculating the feasibility of photovoltaic-powered (PVP) irrigation. The feasibility is expressed as a function of location, which includes(More)
