Estimates of total installed costs and operation and maintenance costs are for grid-tied distributed generation DG scale systems appropriate for residential, commercial, industrial, and Federal facilities. Technologies considered are technically proven and commercially available. Electric generating technologies included are solar photovoltaic PV systems, wind energy, and biomass combined heat and power CHP. Thermal technologies included are biomass heat, solar water heating SWH , solar ventilation preheat SVP using transpired solar collectors, and ground source heat pumps.
Values provided are not to be interpreted as statistically significant. They are only meant to provide rule-of-thumb information, accurate enough for a first pass screen of economic viability. Many often-cited cost studies and reports for renewable energy focus on systems deployed at utility scale.
SWH in Florida , there are cost differences that result from local market maturity and competition. This study reports cost information at a national level; most regional differences are captured in the ranges provided, especially as system sizes increase.
Distributed electrical generation was set at 0 to 10 MW, a fairly large upper limit that may be appropriate for large, multi-building sites such as a military base or Federal laboratory. Cost, useful life, and size information was gathered from the following reference types:.
Most capital cost data used in the calculations are from the sources. PV cost data is more numerous because it is a widely deployed technology. The data, however, are often out of date as a result of significant decreases in the price of modules and moderate decreases in the price of inverters and balance of system components over the last few years. Installation costs have also decreased due to scale, learning curves, and increased competition.
The most recent report documenting current U. PV is broken down into four size categories to reflect the effect of project scale on price. Since the update, the cost of PV has fallen by an average of 15 percent per year. Total installed costs for utility scale wind projects are readily available but more challenging to find for smaller systems. A review of the literature reveals that the most common biomass generators at the DG scale make use of the power plant's waste heat to provide needed thermal energy, which allows projects to be economically viable.
CHP is described in some of the references as a technically sound and economically competitive technology that has not yet experienced wide-scale deployment.
In the US, most CHP systems are installed in large industrial facilities with both significant electrical and thermal loads. CHP is also often installed at facilities that have a significant waste stream such as a lumber or paper mill that serves as a free fuel that would otherwise incur a disposal cost.
Cost information for renewable wood-fired steam systems is reported here for system sizes between kW and 10 MW. Wood fired heat systems are technically mature and their costs have not changed significantly over the last few years.
Installed cost data on SWH systems were found from installers and NREL engineers who have access to a significant number of system costs. SVP, also known as transpired solar collectors, is the least deployed, and has the fewest publications, of those technologies included in this study.
Cost information is difficult to acquire. The values reported in the table are from actual installed projects and the ranges are supported by discussions with a major vendor. In general, systems installed in new construction would be at the lower end of the cost range, while retrofit systems that may have significant integration costs e.
It is assumed there is no maintenance cost for the transpired collectors; however, there is an operating cost for the fan power required to draw intake air through the collector.
This is estimated to be 1 Watt per square foot of collector when the system is operational collector is operated only when useful energy is available; collector is bypassed at all other times. Capital costs vary significantly depending on geographical location, which dictates land prep prices and horizontal versus vertical drilling for ground loops.
Useful life varies significantly between interior components with standard 20 year warranties and ground loop components with year expected lifetimes. Useful life of the technology was estimated by interviewing NREL experts who have been working with the technologies and also by performing a literature search.
Limited information on actual lifetime studies was found. The bulk of the literature referenced included an assumed useful life for a given technology.
These numbers are useful since they provide conventional thinking of experts in each field; it is important to understand that they do not include lifetime statistical data of actual projects. The bibliography table shows the reports and papers that were reviewed to establish the conventionally accepted lifetimes. System size for each technology is intended to be used for a high level estimation of initial system capacity.
Actual size may vary. The information was compiled by performing a literature search, using an NREL database with data from actual systems in the field, and interviewing NREL experts. It allows homeowners, small building owners, installers and manufacturers to easily develop estimates of the performance of potential PV installations.

Energy is an indispensable factor for the economic growth and development of a country. Energy consumption is rapidly increasing worldwide. To fulfill this energy demand, alternative energy sources and efficient utilization are being explored. Various sources of renewable energy and their efficient utilization are comprehensively reviewed and presented in this paper.
Decentralized generation today assumes a very important role in the stability of electric power, especially in rural areas where electric power supplied by large Power plants, is delivered to points of consumption with a poor quality of energy this due to the distance that is found, from the generation to the final consumer, the implementation of the GD is directly related to the increase in the quality of electric energy as well as providing flexibility to the electrical distribution system. The deployment of distributed generation in electricity distribution networks can potentially increase their reliability and reduce the cost of power, by installing energy sources closer to the demand or consumption points. This type of generation involves a great variety of energy sources, such as; wind, solar, hydraulic, fossil fuels, biomass, among others. Aguilera, JA Regulations and regulations.

Generally, design work is that which specifies a new system, process or product. Analysis highlights modifications, retrofit or improvements carried out on an existing system, process or product. We prefer your copy be produced in Microsoft Word. All graphics must of high resolution dpi. The title should express the main point of the article and list the full names of all authors below. An abstract at the beginning should summarize the article and highlight significant new information and conclusions.
Owing to liberalization of electricity market, technology evolution, energy security, environmental issues and growing concerns of energy cost, the penetration of distributed energy units in distribution network is increasingly observed worldwide. Penetratingrembedded generation, or distributedrgeneration DG , in powerrdistribution grid requires asnumber of issues to be considered, such as definition of DG, rating of DG, the best DG technology etc. This paper presents an extensive critical review of various dimensions of distributed generation DG including definitions, generation technologies and their status, impact on distribution network performance etc. The study also presents comparative study between the various technologies in terms of most important technological characteristics of each DG technology.
