Renewable energies are the most important solution to a rising universal population demanding reasonable access to electricity while reducing the need for fossil fuels. Egypt possesses an abundance of land and sunny weather, making it a prime location for renewable energy sources; Egypt intends to supply 20% of generated electricity from renewable sources by 2022. This paper discusses the optimization of the renewable energy hybrid system for electrical loads at El-Sheikh Zayd city in Egypt based on the sizing and the economic study of the power system, HOMER software has been used to execute the economic Feasibility of hybrid PV/diesel energy system. The study verified the impact of PV penetration and battery storage on energy production, cost of energy, number of operational hours of diesel generators for given hybrid configurations. The optimization results show that PV-Diesel-battery based power system is economically more practicable with a minimum total NPC of $ 60.160.159 and a minimum COE of $.330/kWh, also results show that the PV-diesel battery energy system is the least energy losses system and environment polluting system.
