PV potential in oil and sun rich nations: An experimental case study from Brunei

View publication


In several oil and sun rich nations, solar PVs can provide significant benefits in terms of minimizing energy subsidies, emissions, and loss of revenue from local use of oil for power generation. this work uses real demand and generation measurements to study the economic viability of rooftop PVs under different regimes of net metering and feed-in tariff in Brunei. Our preliminary results indicate that while PV systems may not provide immediate savings at current prices, they can generate electricity at costs comparable with fossil fired plants and help offset emissions.
