Saudi Arabia’s most significant aim is to reduce its dependency on fossil fuel and create a holistic plan to incorporate renewable energy

The Saudi Electricity Company has tendered a 100MW PV project across two sites – Al Jouf and Rafha. Mid 2018 will see the first large scale solar PV project operational in the Kingdom

Conference Overview

Saudi Arabia is transforming within the spirit and text of the renewable energy project. Saudi Arabia believes that it predominantly depends on the private sector as it is the chosen partner providing key services in terms of energy, education, healthcare and transportation to achieve the goals of the National Transformation program and Vision 2030. The majority of investments are predicted to be concentrated in the energy sector, or the renewable energies sector in particular.

Saudi Arabia’s National Renewable Energy Program (NREP) is a long term, multifaceted renewable energy strategy designed to balance the domestic power mix in order to deliver economic stability and prosperity, whilst working towards carbon reduction commitments. The NREP is managed and executed by the Ministry of Energy, Industry and Mineral Resources (MEIM), directly supporting Saudi Arabia’s National Transformation Program (NTP) and Vision 2030.

Saudi Arabia’s renewable energy market is set for growth, supported by an abundant solar resource, land availability, an A-rated sovereign credit, and strong economy and logical strategies. The Kingdom’s plans are in line to achieve the VISION 2030, and diversify the energy mix and benefitting from the compelling economics of renewables like solar energy and wind energy. As government finances come under pressure in the low oil price environment, the Kingdom is seeking solutions to reduce subsidies for oil consumption and encourage clean energy generation technologies.

With a slump in the global oil prices, private capital Investment can be of tremendous influence in financing the power sector in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Public-Private partnerships can play a major role in the development of renewable energy generation and infrastructure. With a highly ambitious plan laid out by the Ministry of Energy, Industry and Mineral Resources, the kingdom is looking for development of the Private sector. With extended support from the ministry, the project is largely aimed at the well-being of all stakeholders in the energy sector, right from policy makers to government authorities, end users and suppliers.
