Renewable Energy Resources: A Case Study on Asko Nord AS
Asko Nord AS i a business located in Ramfjorden just outside of Tromsø. In this theses, their potential to produce electricity from renewable resources at their location is investigated. Wind around the building is to find suitable locations for wind turbines, and to estimate the wind at the wind turbines. The calculations show that in a feasible estimate the wind is able to produce 439 kwh from each square meter the wind turbine sweeps. Solar measurement and local conditions are used to calculate optimal orientation and tilt of the solar panels. The results show that with optimal tilting, solar panels are able to produce 166 kwh per square meter of solar panels and even more if the panels are tracking the sun’s motion. The theses ends with a example where solar panels and wind turbines are selected. This shows that Asko, in this case, is able to produce 9:8% of its usage.
