Abstract

Solar energy is expected to be an integral technology in the creation of a low-carbon future. Hence, as photovoltaics (PV) installations continue to grow at an exponential rate, a better understanding of the generation costs of this relatively young industry is necessary in order to assess its competitiveness versus conventional sources. Using an extensive data set of generation costs for solar technology.

His interests lie in renewable energy policy, particularly technology assessment, cost trends, supply chain development of the solar industry, and how solar energy interacts and affects conventional forms of power generation. Previously, he was a research fellow at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), a registered professional engineer in Canada and a senior member of the IEEE. Amro is the author of more than 40 papers and reports and is also the inventor of several patents.
