Techno-economic analysis of hybrid renewable energy system
What is it about?
This study presents the results of techno-economic analysis of hybrid renewable energy system comprising of solar and wind energy for powering a specific remote mobile base transceiver station (BTS) in Nigeria.
Why is it important?
Powering rural BTS sites with generators requires significant maintenance, fuel costs and also increases environmental pollution. Annually, more than 500 million liters of diesel are consumed by telecom sites in Nigeria, which produce about 1.3 million metric tonnes of resulting CO2 . Owning to the deregulation of diesel prices and for reducing carbon emission, it has become an imperative issue for telecom operators in the country to evaluate all alternative options in order to improve network operation and reduce energy cost.
