The Renewable Energy Project Development Office of Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Energy, Industry and Mineral Resources (MEIM) has launched the next phase of the kingdom’s renewable energy plans.

The announcement represents the next phase in Saudi Arabia’s ambitious renewable energy plans, which seek to achieve over 25GW of wind and solar power generation in the next five years, and close to 60GW over the next decade, of which 40GW will be generated from solar energy, with a further 16GW of onshore wind.

With a combined generation capacity of 1.51 GW, the newly announced seven projects will supply enough energy to power 226,500 households, a statement said, adding that the total investment is expected to be worth $1.51 billion, creating over 4,500 jobs during construction, operations and maintenance.
