100% renewable electricity in a Sunbelt country/state



Research areas


Most of the world’s population lives in the “Sunbelt” (lower than 35 degrees of latitude), where the solar irradiance is high, the seasonal variation of solar resource is low and there is no significant heating load in winter. They can readily follow the Australian path, transitioning to a high renewable energy future and bypassing a fossil fuel era. In this project, students will undertake a techno-economic analysis of 100% renewable electricity in a Sunbelt country or state.
