The purpose of this study is to perform the techno-economic analysis of photovoltaic system utilization for lighting and cooling of Ferry Ro/Ro 500 GT. The world is facing a dilemma of increasing dependence on fossil energy with decreasing supply. This situation must be anticipated by all sectors by energy efficiency (EE) and utilizing renewable energy (RE). Especially for RE in the transportation sector, ships as consumers of oil energy can also take advantage of solar energy sources, for example for lighting and cooling. For that purpose, five steps must be taken. First, determine the design specifications. Second, determine the specifications of components of the PV system. Third, calculate the power required for lighting equipment. Fourth, calculate the power required for the cooling system. Fifth, make an investment comparison for propulsion systems between diesel engines and photovoltaic systems. The results show that the energy required for lighting and cooling system as well as for propulsion systems can be placed in the deck area of 148.8 m2 for all system components, such as; PV modules, charge controllers, batteries, and inverter. This study can provide an overview of the use of PV system in designing the environmentally new or renovation ships.
Key words: Green transportation / energy saving / solar energy / energy dilemma / ship design
