- PRESS RELEASE
Following the announcement by the 2012 UN Climate Change Conference (COP18/CMP8 Doha) Organising Sub-Committee Chairman H.E. Fahad Mohamed Al-Attiya, that Qatar will generate 1.8 Gigawatts (1,800 Megawatts) of solar power by 2014 as part of the vision to generate 20% of the country's total energy requirements through renewable sources.
"QSTec is a strong advocate of the 2030 Qatar National Vision and will seize every opportunity that will turn this vision into a reality - beginning with the manufacture of polysilicon, the key ingredient of the world's most efficient solar panels, and expanding through to the manufacturing and installation of solar modules and solutions.
'It is worth mentioning that Solar energy will compliment Qatar's conventional sources of energy. QSTec's Polysilicon plant in Ras Laffan Industrial City when fully expanded will have the capacity to produce 6.5GW of solar power. QSTec will continue to collaborate and partner with key local and international organisations to shape the future of the solar industry throughout Qatar and the region."
