Technological and scientific progress imposed the world economies, and particularly the Arab ones including the petroleum countries which rely on Fossil energy in the production, to tend towards new resources of renewable energy. This is mainly because it is, nowadays, the best choice due the high prices of fossil fuel, and its depletion over time because of the increasing demand. In addition to its resulting environmental effects, the world countries, including Arab ones are asked to use renewable energy more broadly in various fields as it is a futuristic durable, clean and unpolluted source of energy. Being the main factor of Sustainable development, renewable energies put the Arab countries under the pressure of studying and discussing them from many points of view to come to the best solutions to provide renewable energy from different available sources, and remove all obstacles that prevent their success in these countries. This study aims at exposing the reality and facts of renewable energy industry in Algeria; this rich country of resources mainly the solar energy.
