A hybrid energy system is a system that consist of two or more alternative energy sources (ex: solar and wind).
Hybrid energy systems are growing in popularity due to the reliability of stand alone solar or wind power sources.
Thermoelectric refrigeration is useful because it is ideal for outdoor/remote area applications. Since refrigeration is need worldwide it is important that areas that are off the grid or underdeveloped have access to refrigeration for storage of food and medicines.
The overall performance of the hybrid renewable energy system was as expected. We were able to determine that this system would be a viable source of power production for outdoor and remote area applications. Due to time constraints some additional alterations could not be made to the wind turbine in order to get optimal performance. If time were available for further alterations the size of the stepper motor used should have been increased. Further improvements that should be made are in the portability of the entire system and materials used to construct the thermoelectric refrigerator.
