Abstract

Kuwait is a country rich in renewable energy such as solar and wind. The utilisation of renewable energy would lead to reducing the negative impact on the environment and carbon emissions. One of the challenges of utilising renewable energy in Kuwait is the fact that it is rich in fossil fuels, hence making huge investments in renewable energy seems to be immensely unattractive on the short to medium terms. This therefore explains the postponement to effectively strengthen the portfolio of renewable energy projects in Kuwait. This paper presents SWOT analysis to determine the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and challenges associated with the expansion of solar energy production within Kuwait as part of the renewable energy mix to determine the circumstances that influence adoption and utilisation.
