As energy prices and environmental concerns see a growing number of governments, businesses and consumers transitioning to renewable energy there is increasing need to develop sound frameworks by which the feasibility of off-grid and edge-of-grid power systems can be assessed.

“Right now, across the globe, we are amidst a significant transition to supply electricity from renewable energy sources. This shift requires a lot of analysis to be undertaken and it’s important that investment decisions are being made based upon outputs from quality feasibility studies, particularly in the off-grid space,” Renewables Analyst with Australian based Ekistica, Lachlan McLeod says.

“Over the coming years, a significant amount of feasibility studies for the installation of off-grid and edge-of-grid power systems will need to be conducted, and it can be very difficult, particularly in remote areas, to find the skills required to carry out these studies.”
