Saudi Arabia: Solar Energy Market Outlook 2023

Join us for our upcoming webinar titled ‘Saudi Arabia: Solar Energy Market Outlook 2023‘ organized by MESIA, in collaboration with leading companies in the solar PV sector, to gain valuable insights into the thriving renewable energy market in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. According to the latest published MESIA Annual Solar Report, KSA’s strategic pivot towards a cleaner future is diversifying the country’s energy mix and reducing its reliance on oil for power generation.

With the ambitious National Renewable Energy Program (NREP) aiming to install 27.3 GW of renewable energy by 2024 and 58.7 GW by 2030, including 40 GW of PV and 2.7 GW of CSP, there are growing opportunities for both the private and public sectors to capitalize on the country’s shift towards a cleaner, more diversified energy mix.
