Solar power market in Saudi Arabia is projected to witness phenomenal growth over the next five years

In the coming years, solar energy would be generated in the country by employing both photovoltaic (PV) technology and concentrated solar power (CSP) technology. According to the government's Renewable Energy Program, 54 GW of renewable energy capacity would be installed by 2032, which includes 41 GW of solar energy capacity.

Saudi Arabia consumes a large amount of fossil fuels to meet its domestic energy requirements, with transportation and power sectors being the largest consumers of crude oil in the country. Over the couple of decades, consumption of crude oil in Saudi Arabia has increased significantly due to rising power demand on account of increasing urbanization and industrialization.

However, considering future energy requirements and concerns associated with increasing domestic oil consumption, Government of Saudi Arabia has announced a Renewable Energy Program involving an overall investment of USD109 billion to generate electricity from renewable energy sources. Being located within the equatorial Sunbelt and receiving abundant solar radiation throughout the year, Saudi Arabia offers immense potential for solar power generation.
