Saudi Arabia to analyse Renewable Energy

A Saudi Arabian summit to analyse the possibility of solar energy generation in the Kingdom has been scheduled for 27 September, as the government plans to spend at least $100 billion on clean energy resources in the next ten years.

The Kingdom is also aiming to generate five gigawatts of solar power by 2020, and the Solar Arabia summit will bring together key policy makers and government officials to discuss the country’s progress in the renewable field.

Nic Watson, managing director of sales and marketing at Naseba, the organising company, said: “The Middle East is seeing huge interest in investment in renewable energy, and Saudi Arabia’s true potential is yet to be realised. The Solar Arabia platform is a foundation that will allow leading players to contribute to the development of the Kingdom’s alternative energy sector.”
