Saudi Arabia is currently the most promising place for concentrated solar power. According to the CSP Today Global Tracker, Saudi Arabia’s solar resource, measured from its average annual sum of DNI, is 2,400kWh/m2/a.
In March 2012 K.A. Care announced its target to have 25 GW of CSP capacity installed by 2032, which generated high expectations from the CSP industry. Furthermore, in February this year they released a white paper that detailed the proposed competitive procurement process (CPP) of Saudi Arabia’s K.A. Care program. As a result of this leading developers have focused their attention on this exciting market and await the announcement of the opening of bids from K.A. Care.
At the International CSP Week on 12-13 November, participants will be able to network with engineers from K.A.CARE. In addition, representatives from ACWA Power, Saudi Arabia’s leading CSP developer, will be sharing their insights into the development of solar power in the country.
