At the end of April, Deputy crown prince Mohammed bin Salman, son of King Salman bin Abdulaziz al Saud, announced plans for the deployment of renewable energy in Saudi Arabia, dubbed Vision 2030.
On 5th May, the Saudi government further explained that a target of 9.5 gigawatts had been set for renewable energy but that it had no specific quotas for solar and wind. Further to this, the first stage of the program should be realized by 2023. That is the equivalent of deploying 1,600 MW of renewable energy capacity per year.
At MENASol and MENAWind (May 25 to 26, Dubai) a Saudi Arabian focused panel will discuss this play in more detail. Panelists include:
- Deputy Minister, Ministry of Economy and Planning of Saudi Arabia
- Executive Head of Renewable Program, Saudi Aramco
