    Abstract

    The Northern Territory (NT), Australia, has abundant renewable energy resources, in particular solar energy. To date, less than 1% of electrical energy generation comes from renewable energy resources. Power generation and cooling / heating provision using solar energy are technologies that have developed separately and found their ways into real applications, in small, medium or large scales. However, due to initial cost barriers, these systems have not been widely adopted. This paper explores various pathways for widespread development of solar energy in the NT and discusses the potential and barriers of those pathways from technical and economic viewpoints.
