Design of a decision support tool to optimize solar-wind energy systems

In many geographical locations of interest, both solar and wind resources are relatively abundant. The purpose of this project is to design a decision support tool to optimize hybrid solar/wind energy systems. The project shall focus on assessing various combinations of wind and solar capacities with the aim of optimizing the system based on cost and environmental considerations.

More specifically, the project shall include:

Estimate the environmental impact of each hybrid system configuration, including reductions in carbon emissions and fossil fuel usage.
