Scientific Composite, Energy Independence, In-depth Interviews (IDIs), Solar Energy, Pakistan (Punjab)


The scientific composite of energy resources plays foremost role in introducing any technology. In this study, the scientific dimension of solar energy is measured by using in-depth interviews (IDIs). Eighty-five percent (85%) results of the scientific aspect, are found to establish solar energy as the ‘Best Alternative Energy Mean’ in Pakistan. This study extends the literature on solar energy and features the usefulness of solar energy. This study is beneficial to facilitate the Government of Pakistan to initiate enhanced quality of life and improved business prospects in the new avenues of economic progress.
