This experimental field to-be is supposed to feed the renewal energy projects in the kingdom in the required research, studies and specify standard operating procedures in order to execute the projects properly.
This research center is also concerned with reducing the risk rate by coming up with whole new solutions to barriers which may come across the execution procedure of the projects such as different atmosphere conditions which occur in KSA at different times of the year. It’s highly beneficial in the testing solar energy period in terms of solar energy technologies in order to become cheaper and then KSA itself starts to produce it and exports to sell it in the Arabian Gulf and North Africa.
