Alternative Energy is any form of energy derived from non-conventional fossil fuel sources including solar, wind, biofuel, geothermal, tidal power and several others. Each type of energy is suitable for certain environments and certain regions depending on the climatic and geographical characteristics of the region.
Compared to conventional fossil fuels, alternative energy systems such as solar systems are :
Clean: they don’t harm the environment by producing toxic gases and don’t contribute to greenhouse effects as the case in burning crude or fuel oil.
Renewable: they never run out and require no fueling. Nor do they use up natural resources.
Economical on the long run: Although higher initial cost they have little or no operating expenses, which means no monthly billing.
In the Middle East, Solar Energy is by far the most practical and most suitable alternative to conventional power this is largely due to the fact that solar irradiation in this region is relatively high making it more economical to apply than other regions of the world. A solar system in Saudi Arabia can produce 3 times the power produced from the same system in Northern Europe for example.
The two main types of solar energy are Photovoltaic (PV) and solar Thermal. In PV applications, electric power is generated, while in thermal applications, heat is generated for water heating and building heating systems.
