- United Arab Emirates: Sunday, October 07 - 2012 at 09:06
The UAE's first major renewable energy plant is set to be ready by the end of the year, Khaleej Times has reported. With a capacity to generate 100 Megawatt of electricity, Shams 1 will begin supplying solar power to the emirate of Abu Dhabi, enough to power 20,000 homes. Shams 1 is a Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) plant, one of the largest in the world and the first of its kind in the Middle East and North Africa. "At the end of October all these generators that are now powering the plant will be gone and we will connect to the grid and will be live," said Yousif Al Ali, general manager of Shams Power Co, jointly-owned by Masdar (60%), France's Total (20%) and Abengoa Solar of Spain (20%).
