Abstract

The paper delves into regulatory challenges posed by the idea of a large-scale cooperative relationship between non-conventional renewable energy sources (NCRES). It conducts a regulatory study of a prospective symbiotic relationship between hydrokinetic and solar power and their combined potential to further energy matrix diversification, GHGs emissions abatement, and large-scale seawater desalination as a means to the ultimate deployment of bioenergy industry in desertified zones.
