The article reports on the plans of Qatar's General Electricity & Water Co. (Kahramaa) to build either the world's largest solar power complex or a nuclear power plant to meet the expected surge in demand for power over the coming decades. The plan is based on a 30-year demand forecast for the country's power and water sectors. According to Kahramaa, a total of 16,260 megawatts (MW) of power generation capacity will be added to the national grid between 2011 and 2036, almost four times the existing capacity of 4,200 MW.
