This work presents different hybrid energy scenarios for local electricity supply in Fernando de Noronha Archipelago-Brazil. One considers different generating solutions for energy systems ranging from totally fossil fuel based to all renewable sources. The scenarios are constructed using local database measurements; real equipment data and a micro-grid hybrid system modeling (using HOMER Software). The modeling and simulation consider the evaluation of different sizes and quantities of energetic components and the variation in the availability of the natural resources (wind and solar). A Hybrid solution with 67% participation of renewable energy was found feasible for the island and the impact of changing the local vehicle fleet from combustion to electric traction was also addressed.
