There are a large number of un-electrified remotely located communities and villages almost everywhere around the world. Most of these villages are located in forest, hilly, desert, islands and difficult-to-access regions. Because of some technical and economical reasons most of these villages and communities are unlikely to be electrified by extension of conventional national electricity grid. At present, the real question is how we should cover the growing energy demand of these villages in a sustainable and reliable way. While the answers to this question are many and varied, one certain fact is that in future some of the electric power for these communities will be produced by decentralized power system facilities using renewable sources such as solar photovoltaic, micro-hydro, fuel cells, biomass and wind power. The objective of this study is to analyze the technical issues related to decentralized power supply for the purpose of villages’ electrification. A further objective of this research is to design and develop a technologically suitable and economically acceptable power system for remote regions by small scale hybrid energy system. The hybrid system in this study is designed based on renewable sources of energy such as solar and wind available at the location. And finally, this paper presents results of a simulation program conducted to predict the performance of such a hybrid electricity system.
