Remote Prosumers:- Preparing for Deployment


International Energy Agency Renewable Energy Technology Deployment (IEA-RETD)
1 June 2015

This report considers remote prosumers as roof-top solar PV customers in remote areas and islands. It describes how they are deploying renewable energy, some with ambitious plans to meet 100% of their electricity or even final energy needs with renewables. For most of them, roof-top solar PV systems offer advantages but most of their deployment potential remains largely untapped. However, the setup of consistent prosumer policies can provide a means to achieve the islands' objectives faster and with lower costs to society, according to the authors.
