The Inevitability of Investments in Solar Energy to Increase Algeria's Natural Gas Exports

Abstract

Natural gas is the second source of alimentation the Algeria's exportations after oil, but much of it is for the production of electricity, which is widely consumed locally. The aim of this study is to highlight the free, clean and dense resource of solar energy, which can be used to generate electricity to meet domestic demand in the short term, and then direct the gas supplied for export.The most important result was that Algeria has made considerable strides in this area, but it is not sufficient in the presence of two factors, the first of which is the enormous potential of solar energy resources and the second is a time-limited resource
