Electrifying Fishing for Rural Electrification
Paper i proceeding, 2021

Electrification is a known precondition for development and is still lacking in rural and inaccessible parts of the world. Electric conversion of small coastal fishing boats can be an economical driver for small coastal villages in addition to providing environmental benefits. With local standalone solar photovoltaic mini-grids, the system can be fully renewable while still being economically viable. This study shows that such a system could be feasible to build in the Kelan village, Bali, Indonesia. Benefits of modern and smart grid technologies can further increase the economic and environmental benefits. It is also shown that if multiple fishing boat owners join forces to invest in Li-ion batteries the benefit of the even greater.
