Renewable Energy Review: The Island Markets

I know the many problems that Islands have when it comes to producing electric power. Some types of solar thermal and solar PV will not work there for one major reason.

Ground mount hot water and ground mount solar PV work very well in almost every condition as far as bad weather. Energy Storage is not a good solution because once that energy is used up you will no longer have electric power. Now energy storage along with solar PV does work. The most common term for this technology is "Off The Grid Solar Systems".. It makes no sense to install batteries without a way to recharge them during a outage. Having 1/2 a solution will still not solve the major problems. How long is a ...
