Abstract

The adoption of sustainable hybrid power systems (SHPSs) is witnessing a significant surge among electricity consumers worldwide, which is largely driven by the unexpected geopolitical shock experienced by several European countries during the Russian war in Ukraine and the low electricity coverage in many African nations. The European countries heavily relied on Russian gas for electricity generation, but the sudden outbreak of war disrupted this dependency, leading to severe hardships. In contrast, many African countries face challenges with low rates of electrification and limited progress toward renewables due to a scarcity of technical expertise. To address these issues, sustainable hybrid power systems, which are crucial for achieving a decarbonized energy grid, offer a viable solution. The research delves into the motivation behind adopting sustainable hybrid power systems, reviews key aspects surrounding this topic, explores various renewable resources that can be harnessed for the grid and off-grid applications, and discusses essential considerations related to the planning, operations, and feasibility of implementing the SHPS scheme effectively.
