The world's deserts are sufficiently huge that, in conception, overlaying a fragment in their landmass with PV structures may well generate repeatedly the present basic international strength offer. In 3 elements, this research info the history and proposal of VLS-PV, maps out a improvement course in the direction of the conclusion of VLS-PV platforms and gives enterprise strategies to accomplish long term ambitions. This represents the 1st learn to supply a concrete set of solutions to the questions that needs to be addressed with a purpose to safe and take advantage of the potential of VLS-PV know-how and its international advantages.

The amount of electricity generated by VLS-PV can be considered significant for people in the district, nation or region. 2 Image of a VLS-PV system in a desert area industries, new employment and growth of the economy. • The VLS-PV approach is expected to have a drastic influence on the chicken-and-egg cycle in the PV market. If this does not happen, the goal of achieving VLS-PV may move a little further away. VLS-PV systems are already feasible. PV systems with a capacity of more than 10 MW were installed and connected to the public grid in 2006.

The potential amount of world solar energy that can be harnessed is sufficient for global population needs during the 21st century. It has been forecast that photovoltaic technology shows promise as a major energy resource for the future. • Much potential exists in the world’s desert areas. If appropriate approaches are found, they will provide solutions to the energy problem of those countries that are surrounded by deserts. Technical aspects • It has already been proven that various types of PV systems can be applied for VLS-PV.

The assumed demands are households and public welfare needs in the region. The project has benefits beyond electricity. Apart from the creation of jobs and employment, the tourism industry will also benefit. In the second phase, 10 MW PV systems will be installed in Sainshand, Zumiin Uud, Choir and Bor-Undur, which are located along the railway lines. These sites are important cities and the scale is classified as medium-large scale in Mongolia. The total capacity of PV systems installed will reach 40 MW, and the demands assumed are to supply industry sectors, such as mining, located in the sites’ neighbourhoods.
