heal.abstract
This dissertation was written as a part of the MSc in Energy Systems at the International Hellenic University. Here is a summary of the dissertation. The purpose of this study was to identify the electricity exported to the central grid from RES with a focus on PV systems and wind turbines, taking into account parameters such as the different policies and the meteorological conditions that exist throughout the country as well as grid connection issues in Cyprus The installation of wind farms and photovoltaic systems constitutes a solution for the continuously increasing energy demand of this highly developing region. The combination of the interconnections that take place between the island and other countries, and the growth of Wind Farms and PV systems enable the progressive decommissioning of the crude oil power stations, resulting in numerous environmental and financial profits as well as putting an end to the significant energy dependence of Cyprus on third countries. The solar and wind potential of Cyprus seems capable of supporting the transformation of the island’s energy system from an almost totally dependent on imported fossil fuels to a modern one in which indigenous sources of energy will have an important role in reducing import fuel and increasing energy of supply.
