Abstract

In this paper, an overview of the production and consumption of Kuwait electrical energy, installed capacity and peak loads are presented. The results show that Kuwait has a serious situation because of the electrical energy lacking and load peaking. Based on the fact that Kuwait has enough budgets to transform all the power station powered by oil with renewable energy sources turning to greener Kuwait. The paper also is identifying and analyzing the geographical and temporal variability of solar energy inside Kuwait. The fundamental solar models are modified to estimate and identify daily and hourly solar radiation on horizontal surfaces on the basis of the more readily available meteorological data. The presented results prove that Kuwait has an abundance of solar energy capability in terms of almost cloudless atmosphere for nine months and twelve hours solar time a day over the year. The daily global and monthly averaged solar intensity on horizontal surface at Kuwait area is ranging from 3 Wh/m2 in winter to 8 kWh/m2 in summer. Monthly averaged clear sky solar radiation on horizontal surfaces at Kuwait area is ranging from 500 W/m2/day to 1042 W/m2/day.
