In this study, renewable energy Roadmaps were projected for electricity generation from wind, concentrated solar power (CSP), solar photovoltaics and solar water heater rollout programmes that reduce the demand for energy. Electricity targets of 15 per cent penetration, 27 per cent penetration and unlimited penetration by 2030 were assessed, as well as high and low solar water heater strategies.
