Nowadays, the rate of energy consumption causes serious problems in production of the necessary energy. The integration of the renewable energy sources could be a solution for this concern. The decentralized electricity production is going to be a relevant method in the near future contrary to the centralized one.

In my thesis I analyzed the possibility of the usage of renewable sources. I used a biogas based combined heat and power plant to supply a farm’s energy consumption, that is far away from the electricity network. The biogas power plant is based on the refuse of a pig farm. I estimated the consumption profile of the farm, considering several options. I looked at the possibility of the solar power, and energy storage supplement, and compared the investment expanses.

I think the conscious energy consumption combined with protection of the environment, is a subject, which is worthy of discussion, and take up the question. The fast technology progression helps these applications to use them extensively.
