Lebanon has spent billions of dollars on its electricity sector, but the demand is higher than available power. In peak demand time, blackouts are the major phenomena in almost all the Lebanese regions. As the world today is going into green energy, this project lunches the idea of implementing hybrid-renewable distributed energy systems in Lebanon either by individuals or by government. This step will minimize green house gas emissions, increase the reliability of the grid, save in the individual's electricity bill and finally, increase the power generation capacity in Lebanon. For all the mentioned problems, distributed generation using hybrid-renewable energy systems is proposed as a future solution for the Lebanese energy sector. Losses in the transmission and distribution system will be reduced since power is generated near loads. The grid availability and stability will increase and individuals can save money in their electricity bill and finally the generated power is clean and nonpolluting. A study of a design will be launched, including simulation using MATLAB/SIMULINK.
