Socio-economic impacts of energy access through off-grid systems in rural communities: a case study of southwest Nigeria

The development of resilient energy systems is important for sustainable cities and communities. However, in countries with insufficient national energy supply, electricity distributors rarely

Potential for Increased Rural Electrification Rate in Sub-Saharan Africa using SWER Power Distribution Networks

Rural electrification rate (RER) in Africa is still low to date. Several countries in Sub-Saharan Africa have tried to address this problem using conventional single- phase two-wire or three-phase

Optimized Sizing of Stand-Alone PV Systems for Off-Grid Electrification

With decreasing cost of solar photovoltaic (PV) modules, increasing influx of efficient DC loads and maturing storage technology, off-grid electrification is becoming viable in many remote areas of

Impressions of remote area electrification on social and economic indicators

The development of any country depends on the electrification of rural regions as most of the population is residing in rural areas. Development is counted in terms of per capita energy consumption

Understanding Microgrid Sustainability: A Systemic and Comprehensive Review

There is a growing research interest in studying microgrids as a way to overcome the lack of access to energy. These microgrids could be the key to global energy access because of their many



Optimizing microwind rural electrification projects. A case study in Peru

A mathematical model is developed that gives the location and size or type of the wind turbines and the design of the microgrids, taking into account the demand of the consumption points and the wind potential, and shows that micro grids are used despite the village dispersion, and the solutions significantly reduce the initial investment costs.

Least-Cost Electrification Modeling and Planning—A Case Study for Five Nigerian Federal States

This work has developed a modeling process to derive a least-cost electrification plan for five federal states in Nigeria combining energy system simulations with geospatial information system tools.
