Photovoltaic SkylightIn countries such as Spain, Chile, Brazil and Uruguay, photovoltaic energy is already producing electricity at a cost of 0.07 €/kWh. Even in Dubai this cost has been reduced to 0.05 €/kWh.

The latest analysis “Actual cost and photovoltaic future” by German Agora Think Tank, estimates that this cost will reach 0.041 €/kWh by 2050.
