Why Saudi Arabia?

Saudi Arabia’s solar energy industry is now in sharp focus, as domestic consumption of fossil fuels is expected to treble by 2030.

Saudi Aramco CEO, Khalid Al-Falih, believes that Saudi Arabia needs to approach its solar strategy with care and acknowledged that “Saudi Aramco is looking at solar investments with great interest.”

Further confirming the urgency, necessity and importance of the Solar Arabia Summit, Gasem al-Shaikh, Head of the Energy Unit at Saudi Bin Ladin Group confirmed that “The country can’t wait. We are burning more liquids every year, and that’s why Saudi Aramco now is taking the lead.”

As a part of their renewable energy development strategy, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is: 

Committed to investing US$ 109 billion into renewable energy
Targeting 54 GW of new renewable energy (41 GW in solar) by 2032
Actively promoting the creation of local manufacturing, JVs and partnerships with international technology experts
