dc.description.abstract This thesis examines the current situation of electricity in Lebanon by highlighting the gaps and shortages from the supply side. It draws an estimation of the growing gap between electricity supply and electricity demand in the long-term. Moreover, it studies the economic feasibility of several electricity systems as Natural Gas CCGT, Diesel CCGT, Wind and concentrating solar power by taking into account the related initial cost, the generating cost and the environmental externality cost. Then, a technical feasibility is drawn in the Lebanese context to show the readiness of Lebanon to launch the green energy and to shift to cleaner energy as natural gas. Besides, this thesis highlights the mechanism of the electricity sector under current monopoly and under a liberal scenario with market competition. It shows how the role of legislations is crucial in drawing market efficiency and power diversification based on pure profit motives. This study observes the economic, environmental, and technical feasibility of the renewable energies and natural gas without ignoring the legal side as the key for sector success. en_US
