Abstract

With an ever-growing and developing world, rise in energy demand is inevitable. In many circumstances, this is not possible as many rural areas lack access to electricity. The main culprit for this is the demand in urban areas. As the population density in metropolitan cities is high, the citizens consume most of the energy produced by the power plants, for instance, residential, commercial buildings, and industries. This dependency causes intermittent electricity flow as there is variation in demand daily, monthly, seasonally and yearly, which in turn causes an unnecessary variation in power plant output. As a result, organizations requiring urgent / continuous electricity cannot have stable access due to the fluctuations. Abiding by Goal 7 of United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (Affordable and Clean Energy), it is required that producing clean energy and having a stand-alone (off-grid) system is desirable to tackle this intermittency. Consequently, in case of excess electricity produced, it is returned to the grid or to any nearby area where there is demand. In the case of an independent / isolated University Campus, surplus electricity can be given to the nearby rural area. This position paper discusses and explains the methods and ways to use renewable sources and grid power to counter such effects depending upon that specific region. It includes two case studies with a need to imbibe and construct a mathematical model.
