Feasibility study for the hybridization of an existing Diesel power plant located in an small island
New Caledonia
Elaboration of a feasibility study for the hybridization of a Diesel micro grid located in Ile de Pins island in New Caledonia. This study optimizes the sizing of the main hybrid system components and evaluates the technical and economical impacts of the hybridization. 3 options are analyzed with different PV power output, 300 - 500 - 800 kWp and with or without a storage system (600 kWh with Li - ion technology).

 

 

Electrification study for 5 villages of the "Haut Maroni" region in French Guyana with hybrid PV/diesel systems
French Guyana
Site visit to estimate the power consumption of the 5 villages concerned and optimize the sizing of the main hybrid system components. Dynamic system simulation to estimate the solar production, design and technical specifications of the system and finally the economic study have been carried out in this project.

 

 

Sensitization workshops and training on renewable energy and energy efficiency addressed to the SNIM employees
Mauritania
This project is divided in two stages :
- Stage 1: sensitization workshops in Mauritania adressed to the SNIM workers aiming at decrease the energy consumption and increase the environmental awareness. Three 1-day sessions have been carried out in Noadhibou and Zouerate. 
- Stage 2: training for two engineers from SNIM concerning the methodology of energy audits in the building and industrial environment. This 8-days training is carried out in France.

 

 

Feasibility study of 5 BIPV systems for self consumption for TOTAL agencies
Ghana, Equatorial Guinea, Burkina Faso, Congo and Senegal
The tasks carried out in this project are:
- BIPV technologie assessment
- Electrical demand analysis for each agency
- Solar production assessment and pre-sizing of main components
- Estimation of the PV self consumption rate

 

 

Pre-feasibility study for photovoltaic and wind energy integration into an Island power grid located
Bahamas
Feasibility study for the integration of renewable energy into the electrical system of the island in order to decrease the current diesel consumption. Some options has been analyzed, pv, wind energy, batteries… a 200-kWp PV system has been proposed in order to decrease about 22% the current diesel consumption

 

 

Feasibility study of a photovoltaic system based on self-consumption mode in the Energy Ministry building
Burkina Faso
Feasibility study for a photovoltaic system for self-consumption in the Energy Ministry building of Burkina Faso. The load profile of the building has been analyzed and an 80-kWp photovoltaic array has been selected in order to generate electricity for self-consumption with injection of the energy excess into the public power grid. A renewable fraction of 20% is achieved with the system designed.

 

 

Pre-easibility study for the integration of photovoltaic energy into the Guerin-kouka power grid
Togo
Some alternatives have been analyzed in order to integrate a renewable energy source into the Guerin-Kouka power grid in Togo. A 160-kWp PV array and a 360-kWh battery bank has been sized which represents a renewable energy fraction of about 60%.

 

 

Energy efficiency program on Mauritian public buildings retrofitting
Mauritius
- Inventory of Mauritius public institution around energy efficiency
- Organisation structure proposals on Mauritius government
- Energy efficiency actions program adapted to public buildings retrofitting
- Energy audits about a sample of public building
