Abstract/Summary:


Wider utilization of solar energy should provide the foundation for not only reliable energy supply, but it may bring renaissance in the development of developing countries and can significantly contribute to enhancing their social economic development. Some countries in Asia, Africa, etc., have abundant resources of solar energy, low-cost desert and arid land area which would lead to the favourable economic conditions of large scale PV deployment. IEA PVPS Task 8 showed that the Gobi desert area of Mongolia is one of the most promising candidate sites for introducing very large scale PV systems (VLS-PV). The introduction of VLS-PV systems in Gobi desert regions may have quite a large impact on the future development of Mongolia and will stimulate wider use PV power generation system. Currently, the idea of establishment of the VLS-PV in Gobi desert regions and connecting it via high-voltage transmission lines to populated areas in the Northeast Asian countries have been discussed.
