Providing a reliable and sustainable power supply with appropriate environmental considerations to remote areas, especially in developing countries, is the main aim of this research. There have been many natural disasters in Indonesia, primarily the Aceh Tsunami on Boxing Day 2004, and followed by many others, such as the earthquake in Yogyakarta in 2006, the Padang earthquake in 2007, and earthquake in Manokwari, Papua, in early 2009. Some other disasters in other regions include: the Maldives, a country formed by a group of natural atolls located to the southwest of India, which was affected by the Asia Tsunami 2004, the China earthquake in 2008 and the cyclone in Burma in the same year. Such catastrophes usually result in the affected areas being isolated, particularly if the events happen in remote locations. Most of these areas usually suffer from destruction of their vital infrastructure, such as power and water supplies. These occurrences demonstrate the need for an appropriate and environmentally-friendly solution to the lack of power and water supplies in remote areas as part of disaster response and reconstruction.
