Item description for Energy from the Desert: Feasibility of Very Large Scale Photovoltaic Power Generation (VLS-PV) Systems by Kosuke Kurokawa...

The world's deserts are sufficiently large that, in theory, covering a fraction of their landmass with PV systems could generate many times the current primary global energy supply.

In three parts, this study details the background and concept of VLS-PV, maps out a development path towards the realization of VLS-PV systems, and provides firm recommendations to achieve long-term targets. This represents the first study to provide a concrete set of answers to the questions that must be addressed in order to secure and exploit the potential for VLS-PV technology and its global benefits. The contributing authors include a panel of fourteen acknowledged international experts from eight countries (U.S., Japan, Israel, Spain, Italy, Korea, the Netherlands, and Mongolia).
