ABSTRACT
The article discusses the efforts of Saudi Arabia to shift into renewable energy although closely identified with petroleum, with the Kingdom announcing plans for the installation of 54 gigawatts (GW) of solar, wind, geothermal and waste-to-energy plants in the next 20 years. The government is planning a 109 billion dollars investment in photovoltaics (PV) and concentrating solar power (CSP) to meet 25 to 30 percent solar electricity demand by 2032.
