Abstract [en]

A renewable energy and energy storage system is designed for a project of 20 upscale houses to be constructed in Accra, Ghana is the Swedish start-up company of AsaDuru. Renewable energy generation and storage methods are investigated and the suitable types of generation methods and the components which shall be used in these are decided. Detailed information about the target project site is attained through a visit funded by a Minor Field Studies scholarship, and a comprehensive economic analysis based on local conditions is made.

It is found that a solar energy system using poly-crystalline modules, lithium-ion batteries and a generator back-up would be the most suitable system design for this project, and the only way to fulfill economic criteria. A renewable energy fraction of 98% is achieved at a cost level of 26 740$/house, roughly 10% lower than the set upper limit of 30 000$.

Abstract [sv]

Ett system för skörd och lagring av förnybar energi för 20 exklusiva, projekterade hus i Accra, Ghana har planerats för det svenska start-up företaget AsaDuru. Metoder för att generera och lagra förnybar energi utreds och de lämpliga typer av generationsmetoder och komponenter som skall användas i dessa bestäms. Detaljerad information om Ghana samlads genom Minor Field Studies (MFS), och en omfattande ekonomisk analys för projektets genomförande gjordes.

Resultaten visar att ett solenergisystem, med hjälp av poly-kristallina moduler, litiumjonbatterier och en back-up generator skulle vara det lämpligaste systemdesign för detta projekt, och det enda sättet att uppfylla dets ekonomiska kriterier. En fraktion på 98% förnybar energi uppnås vid kostnadsnivån 26 740$/hus, ungefär 10% lägre än den beslutade övre gränsen på 30 000 $.
