Renewable energy systems are of importance as being modular, nature-friendly and domestic. Among the renewable energy systems, a great deal of research has been conducted especially on photovoltaic, wind energy and fuel cell in the recent years. One of the hybrid renewable energy systems consisting of 5 kWp photovoltaic panels, 800 Wp wind turbines and 2.4 kWp fuel cell modules was installed at Clean Energy House (CEH), Pamukkale University in Denizli, Turkey. To protect this laboratory, a "Lightning Protection System" was installed at the CEH. In this study, design and installation processes of a lightning protection system for the hybrid renewable energy system at the CEH are considered.
