Abstract

The main purpose of this paper is to design an optimal electrical power generation system using Renewable Energy in Pulau Perhentian Besar Island in Malaysia. This island was chosen in this study particularly because of the lack of record on the energy power generation assessment of islands in peninsular Malaysia. One of the important aspects of this study, is to reduce energy consumption with the applications of some new methods (Passive House, HVAC, Natural ventilation) to design entire buildings (residential, services) in Pulau Perhentian Besar Island and as a result, cost of electrical power generation will be optimal and accomplishable. Moreover, based on the potential renewable energy in this island, this paper attempts to propose electrical power generation with the use of solar and wind energy to cover overall energy requirements in Pulau Perhentian Besar Island. In this investigation, for the estimation of design cost, HOMMER soft is used to analyze the required solar panels, batteries, converters and etc, which dependent on the amount of solar radiation. The aim was to illustrate, that renewable energy can be an appropriate alternative instead of using fossil fuel and is capable of supplying the required electrical power energy.
