Energy poverty is widespread in island countries, especially for the low-income countries. It is around 70% households in the Pacific island countries do not have access to electricity. With the fast development of renewable technologies, feasible and cost-efficient microgrid solutions are expected to mitigate this issue. This paper uses Indonesia as an example to investigate, develop and evaluate the potential microgrid solutions for the remote islands. There are six potential microgrid solutions are discussed, and two solutions (photovoltaic cells and storage; diesel generator, photovoltaic cells, and battery) are evaluated and identified as the most feasible, cheapest, and green solutions for the remote island microgrids.
