Saudi Arabia's Renewable Energy Strategy and Solar Energy Deployment Roadmap

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is developing rapidly, with strong economic growth projected to continue in the short and medium term. Economic development and population growth, however, have come with an increase in the demand for electrical power, much of which is needed to desalinate water. Saudi Arabia, the world's top oil exporter, has recently announced their strategic decision to diversify their energy mix in an attempt to meet this demand while also creating new economic sectors in the country. Abdulrahman Al Ghabban presents Saudi Arabia's renewable energy roadmap to generate 54.1 GW of renewable electricity by 2032 and discusses the country's future energy mix.
