MEW unveils plan for clean energy projects

The Ministry of Electricity, Water, and Renewable Energy has unveiled an ambitious plan to harness clean energy sources such as solar and wind power. With an approved plan in place, the ministry anticipates generating a staggering 4,710 megawatts from these projects.

According to sources within the ministry, key projects under this plan include the Al-Shagaya complex project, spanning five phases, with an expected electricity production capacity of 4,500 megawatts. Additionally, the Abdaliyah station project, with an estimated energy capacity ranging from 180 to 230 megawatts, is currently under study.

Furthermore, the ministry is exploring innovative approaches, such as installing photovoltaic systems on the roofs of Subiya ground water tanks, with a targeted capacity of 30 megawatts. This project is currently being evaluated by the Central Agency for Public Tenders.

In addition to these large-scale initiatives, the ministry is actively pursuing smaller projects aimed at bolstering renewable energy technology. Current projects already in progress boast a combined capacity of 5.045 megawatts, with future endeavors set to contribute an additional 93.46 megawatts.

Among the upcoming small-scale projects are plans to install photovoltaic cell systems on car awnings, buildings of power stations, and ministry facilities across various sites, with a total installed capacity of 8 megawatts and 34.6 megawatts respectively. These projects await approval by relevant authorities.

Furthermore, proposals for projects such as the Doha Water Complex Project, the Shuwaikh Water Complex, and the Hawally Water Complex are underway, with an expected production capacity of 37 megawatts.

The latest addition to this ambitious portfolio is the Al-Matlaa High Reservoirs Project, projected to generate 45 megawatts of electricity. With these endeavors, the Ministry of Electricity, Water, and Renewable Energy is taking significant strides towards a sustainable energy future.
