Lecture featuring Xavier Vallvé, International Consultant and Partner
Trama TecnoAmbiental, Barcelona – Spain
Grid extension is often highly costly or is unlikely to be accomplished
within the medium term in many rural and remote areas. In such situations, multisource electricity (hybrid) micro-grids based on renewable energy can be used to electrify households and local shops for compact villages and hamlets.
 
Based on the implementation of solar PV hybrid rural electrification
solutions within remote areas of Spain and micro grid projects around the
world, the lessons learned from these projects, provide insights on key
issues that must be considered to successfully scale-up. Implementing sustainable renewable energy micro-grids (typically < 100 kW)
involves complex technical, financial and organizational issues which must address the end-users and their needs, capacity building and training, tariff and subsidy setting, and institutional strength. These issues and some actual implementations will be presented and discussed in some detail in this presentation.
