London, UK (PRWEB UK) 19 January 2013
2012 saw a number of high-profile announcements in the MENA region, the most prominent made in Saudi Arabia. The King Abdullah City for Atomic and Renewable Energy (K.A.CARE) revealed a target of 16GW of PV would be installed in the Kingdom over the next 20 years, with 1.1GW up for grabs in the first phase.
Around the Gulf new opportunities continue to arise. In July last year the Oman Power and Water Procurement company initiated research into a potential 200MW solar plant incorporating photovoltaic technology, while Qatar has indicated that PV will play a role in powering the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
To assess and explain these new prospects, PV Insider has released a complimentary document entitled the PV guide to the MENA region. The guide provides detailed analysis on four key emerging markets, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar and Oman, as well as data on existing example projects and information on the local players there.
