Abstract

One of the possible solutions to provide electricity to a remote area community is to build a self-sustaining power generation system by harvesting the renewable energy. However, the intermittent nature of renewable energy has become a key issue to be solved in order to guarantee an uninterrupted power supply at all times. Hence, this chapter discusses briefly the different types of energy storage systems and highlights batteries as one of the most promising and flexible options to be used in remote area power supply (RAPS) systems. An outline of the typical components in a RAPS system and the present status with regard to batteries currently used in existing RAPS systems is included in the chapter. In addition, this chapter explores the benefits and disadvantages of other potential battery systems and emerging energy storage technologies (e.g., hydrogen) that could be used for the RAPS systems. The choice of batteries to be used in such systems will be dependent on several factors, including cost, ease of maintenance, product longevity, and storage capability.
