This paper concerns with exploitation of renewableenergy sources for meeting energy requirements of remotelocations. It presents an investigation which is based on apractical project that was executed in collaboration betweenacademia and industry. It involves design and installation of aprototype integrated renewable energy system which consists oftwo 15 kW wind turbines, electrolyser, fuel cell system (FCS)and the associated control equipment. It was installed at thefurthest island of Shetland, North of Scotland, U.K. Thephilosophy used in designing this system is summarised asfollows: During times of high wind, the electricity generated bywind turbines is normally greater than that required by siteelectrical load. The excessive amount of generated electricity isstored into Hydrogen by utilising an electrolyser which is thenused to generate the deficient electric power by the FCS at timesof low wind.
