Abstract

Electricity supply issues are the most critical in remote rural areas. Electricity is needed not only to ensure economic activity, but also to ensure high standards of living. The construction of power lines or the delivery of fuel for diesel generators is not always possible or economically feasible. Therefore, the most promising is the use of renewable energy sources to solve the electricity supply issues. Today there are various types of equipment that can be successfully used to solve autonomous power supply tasks of remote objects of agriculture. At the same time, in practice, the introduction of renewable energy sources is accompanied by the solution of a number of serious problems, connected primarily with the variability of most of the types of such energy used. Therefore, the most critical part is determining the potential of specific types of renewable sources in specific areas. The possibility of an independent preliminary assessment of the potential for the use of renewables is particularly relevant for small objects of agriculture. Due to limited resources they do not always have the opportunity to order professional research and evaluate their possibilities of renewable energy sources usage. This study is devoted to solving this issue, using the developed approaches and the latest publicly available tools. The results will help in the selection of equipment and the assessment of the possible amount of electricity that can be obtained within a certain period.
