We have an impressive natural potential for solar and wind power. Dumat Al Jandal is Round 1 of the National Renewable Energy Programme and will be the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s first utility-scale wind power project.

The National Renewable Energy Program

The National Renewable Energy Program (NREP) aims to substantially increase the share of renewable energy in the total energy mix, targeting the generation of 3.45 gigawatts (GW) of renewable energy by 2020 under the National Transformation Program (NTP), and 9.5GW by 2023, towards Vision 2030. Thus increasing the share of renewables in the power mix from 0 to 4 percent.

The initial target of 3.45GW of renewables by 2020 will involve three rounds of tendering that will procure a mix of wind, solar PV, concentrated solar power (CSP) and Waste-to-Energy technology. The NREP will target 700 megawatts (MW), 1.02GW and 1.73GW respectively across the three rounds starting in 2017. The NREP will target a further 6.05GW by 2023.
