Abstract

Renewable energy plays important roles in supplying energy to the world since it able to reduce the demand of
fossil fuels. Natural processes and minerals such as sunlight, wind, tide and geothermal heat describes renewable energy. Nowadays, the world is shifting to renewable energy sources due to several factors such as rising prices of oil and gas and scarcity. Theoretically, solar energy is the energy from the sun. Too expensive for mainstream market was the main factors that make solar technologies occupied on uncomfortable position. As time change, global warming and climate change began to emerge. Essentially, solar power can offer a greener, cheaper path to development.Furthermore, meeting rising energy demand with cost-effective new generation capacity is a critical challenge facing most developing countries. Review of literatures shows that it is a clear signal that something needs to be done about renewable energy to put the world on a better path to avoiding the impacts of climate change.Thus, Just in Time (JIT), one procurement mechanism and support schemes for clean energy such as solar energy seems to lead the charge. This research involved a literature search on the challenges of the solar energy and the way forward based on the frequency of the factors identified by past researchers. As a result, more effort is necessary to boost and further stimulate action towards a better understanding on the positive and negative effects of solar energy, which will result in greener, cheaper and better path of the current and future development.
