Table 16 Energy efficiency (EE) assessment input specifications

From: Assessment of a decentralized grid-connected photovoltaic (PV) / wind / biogas hybrid power system in northern Nigeria

Parameters Specification
Calculated total costs of considered appliances in baseline case $3180
Calculated total costs of appliances as substitute for the EE measure $15,420
Calculated capital cost increment on implementing the EE measure $12,240
Calculated load power reduction on implementing the EE in summer 51%
Calculated load power reduction on implementing the EE in winter 40%
Calculated power reduction based on the seasons’ energy weights 44%
Energy efficiency (EE) multiplier input 100 − 44% = 56%
Energy efficiency (EE) lifetime input 25 years
