ABSTRACT

Some renewable energy sources, such as biomass, hydro, geothermal and tidal energy,
produce reliable electricity, which can be distributed to remote locations. Other sources,
like solar and wind depend on the weather, but it is predictable and so their usefulness
may be suitably amended with permanent renewable energy sources. The vast majority
of renewable energy in addition to their advantages in terms of their source
inexhaustibility also has significant drawbacks which significantly limit their expansion.
For this purpose, was created an analytical tool which assesses the reliability of selected
renewable energy sources in terms of several factors. Among these factors we include
limiting factors - restrictions on activities (under natural conditions), legislative
restrictions (environmental protection, state support), economic constraints (energy
costs, investment costs) and restrictions on the production of energy surplus (mode of
operation of equipment). The results of the analysis are the creation of geographically
and time-dependent outcomes with inputs, which require a detailed analysis of local
conditions, utilization of selected energy sources and availability of the source.

This paper is dedicated to optimizing the mix of renewable energy sources in terms of
households so as to minimize the limitations of renewable energy while minimizing the
investment and operating costs.

Keywords: combined production of renewable energy, individual housing, investment costs, and operating costs.
