Sustainability has been at the heart of Qatar’s hosting of the 2022 FIFA World Cup from the very outset and, once fully connected to the grid later this year, the Al-Kharsaa solar plant will produce electricity with a capacity to cover 10% of the country’s peak demand, states LONGi.
The project falls within the Qatari energy sector’s attempt towards fulfilling its commitment to cut carbon dioxide emissions and increase its investment in clean energy, with a view to achieving the goals set out in Qatar’s ‘National Vision 2030‘.
“As a world leading solar technology company, LONGi’s objective is to provide environment-friendly and resource-saving PV power station solutions to contribute to the coordinated development of the economy and environment, both in the Middle East and globally,” LONGi said.
