Abstract


Utilization of solar energy sources in electrical power generation sector is essentialt on account of its capability to meet the needs of environmental unsustainability, energy depletion and costs increases. Solar energy source utilization is therefore considered a vital element for ensuring reliability and uninterrupted supply of required eletcrical power output in Pakistan. The fossil fuels in comparison to solar energy are unsustainable sources on account of their finite nature, environmental unsustainability and unstable production costs. In order to establish this proposition it is essential to evaluate these parameters of thermal and solar powered electrical power generation processes in electrical power generation sector . Therefore, research is carried out to analyze the parameters of input energy requirement,production costs and environmental sustainability of both the thermal and solar electrical power generation processes. The result of the research are analysed for detrmination are promising for better prospects of medium and large scale solar electrical power generation in Pakistan.
