During the last decade with the modern scientific development, different solar energy (SE) technologies were introduced under vast cost variations. The huge need of energy for the use of economic development with the rise of fossil fuel price represents an urgent problem worldwide. The geographical location of Arab countries makes them subject to high average solar irradiance. So that, sustainable energy generation especially solar energy generation can be suitable alternative to conventional energy generation. To implement a solar energy application, the suitable technology choice represents a huge challenge due to high risk against budget cost. In this paper, different solar energy technologies are discussed with the suitable application to obtain the optimal energy conversion system efficiency. Both photovoltaic (PV) and Solar thermal technologies were investigated.
