This document released by Green Line Association, a Lebanese NGO, provides an overview of the renewable energies penetration in Lebanon and in surrounding countries (Egypt, Jordan, Palestine, Syria).
In Lebanon, collective solar water heating (SWH) systems' installations have verified an annual increase rate of 24% since 2000, whereas in the past individual SWH systems were more common. The figures show that a decrease in the purchasing costs of the systems has been positive to the market.
The document also mentions other renewable energy sources like geothermal, wind, hydro-power, biomass, tides and waves, providing a cost-benefit analysis between each one of these and normal fossil fuels.
