In recent years, massive solar projects proposed for the Middle East have grabbed headlines with extremely low prices. Developers have announced agreements to sell their solar energy for as low as 2.34¢ per kilowatt-hour (kWh)—lower than the US' lowest prices and much lower than the average 6¢ per kilowatt-hour that the US lauded last September.

Still, the numbers seem real for the region; not all cost reductions are likely to transfer to other parts of the world. "Some observers have speculated that money was essentially given out for free to the project developers, to achieve headline-grabbing pricing milestones," the researcher wrote. "Our analysis shows that such extreme assumptions are not necessary to achieve the reported prices under today’s conditions." What contributes to these … [Read more...] about Are super-cheap solar fields in the Middle East just loss-leaders?
