Abstract

Renewable generation of electricity within the home has not, thus far, been a notable technology in Libya. To facilitate better take-up, the studies presented here estimate the photovoltaic system sizing; wind and rainfall potentials based on Libyan household energy consumption. Libyan public awareness of such technologies is also investigated. From a Libyan electricity consumer's perspective, the vital benefits of deploying microgeneration within a house are to reduce power shortage problems rather than electricity bills. The paper therefore concludes that the public has a positive attitude towards the new technology despite the current lack of provision.
