Abstract

This paper addresses the need for electricity of remote rural communities in developing countries and the possibility to use renewable energy to supply electricity to non-electrified villages in isolated rural regions. An overview of the main available renewable energy technologies is given and the case of Guinea Bissau is studied. Using a software tool developed in previous works the practical case of a photovoltaic water pumping system to supply water to non-electrified villages in isolated rural regions of Guinea Bissau is analyzed. Details, simulations and estimated costs are given.
