RENEWABLE ENERGY INVESTOR MEETING
Life in Saudi Arabia has long been defined by the oil that flows from the kingdom. While the world’s largest oil exporter is well-known as a petroleum producer, it is also heavily dependent on petroleum for energy generation. Under Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s leadership, the Kingdom is embarking on an ambitious effort to diversify its economy and reinvigorate growth, in part by plowing money into renewable energy.
Early last year Saudi Arabia announced The National Renewable Energy Program (NREP), a strategic initiative under Vision 2030 with the goal of supplying 10% of its power demand with renewable energy by 2023. In total, Saudi Arabia plans on spending between $30 and $50 billion through 2023 to hit its renewable energy goals.
In a sign of how rapidly the kingdom’s renewable energy sector is developing, it will tender for 3,200MW of solar power and 800MW of wind, this year, compared to 700MW in 2017. It will also look at other sources of power, including concentrated solar power (CSP) and waste-to-energy. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has a very strong industrial base, wants to expand it and expect results from 2018 onwards.

PAST AND TARGET INVESTORS
Why seek Saudi energy investors?
Saudis are very comfortable with solar and wind projects. Given their related capabilities and previous experiences in solar and wind projects, we can reasonably expect them to be relatively quick in providing an assessment for given projects.
In addition to having access to vast pools of funding, Saudi investors would also be able to draw on their successful past experiences to provide meaningful support across the entire spectrum of executing a project including engineering, procurement, construction, manufacturing, and project & risk management.
Obtaining the backing of a Saudi investor would provide a project with a rock-solid foundation and the required clout to propel it forward & overcome any challenges that may arise during construction and commissioning.
