Qatar plans $20bn solar energy plant
- Qatar: Monday, December 03 - 2012 at 04:29
Qatar is set to invite firms to bid for a 1,800 megawatt (MW) solar energy plant in 2014 costing between $10-20bn, as the world's highest per capita greenhouse gas emitter seeks to increase its renewable energy production, Reuters has reported. "We need to diversify our energy mix," said Fahad Bin Mohammed al-Attiya, chairman of the Qatari organisers of climate talks in Doha. The power generated by solar energy would mainly power the country's desalination plants, which are currently gas-fuelled. The plant construction was expected to be completed by 2018, he said. "It will be developed in a concession format, there'll be blocks," he added.
