One major problem in the world is global warming that is now in the concern of some countries. Most countries are working on the usage of renewable energy sources such as solar energy, clean fuels like hydrogen and also increasing the efficiency of fossil fuel plant to help the global warming effect. Countries having high potential of solar energy and also natural gas as a source of hydrogen can use the finding of this research by developing usage of the solar energy converters and natural gas fuel cells for electric power plants. This paper discusses hybridization of renewable solar energy source with high efficient and clean usage of natural gas fossil fuel. Other aspects of this hybrid power plant is using the renewable energy sources as a reliable power supply with stand alone and grid connected capability which can increase network power quality. This paper also discusses the hybridization of solar energy as a renewable energy source and natural gas fuel cells as a fossil fuel and also improvement of power plant efficiency by using power electronics technology and electric energy storages.
