Abstract


An analysis of solar power generation and CO2 emission reductions for a site at Sukkur, Pakistan is carried out to demonstrate the capability of solar powered power generation as an alternative valuable energy source to conventional fossil fuelled power generation systems. In this paper, energy and emission analyses are used as means for an estimation of the amount of electrical power that can be produced and along with CO2 emissions reduction per specific area per time, if solar energy is used as an alternative fuel for power generation. The results show solar potential is more than adequate for electrical power production to meet the local electricity needs in environmentally sustainable manner on account of considerable amount of emissions that could be avoided accordingly.
