After giving some introductory information about Galapagos, its background and electrical condition, this paper states the candidate technologies. The renewable energy resources are: Hydro, Geothermal, Solar, and Wind energy. After showing the evaluation criteria selected by field experts, the methodology used to evaluate those technologies described then. Next, this paper explain the implementation process including, the project time line, implications, and the characteristics of the selected energy.
