The Kuwait Petroleum Corporation (“KPC”) intends to source approximately 15% of its electricity consumption from solar power by 2020.

His Highness the Amir of the State of Kuwait, Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah has stated that 15% (approximately 2.5GW) of Kuwait’s electricity must be sourced from renewable energy by 2030. Kuwait’s Minister of Electricity and Water has commented that the KPC solar programme will help reduce carbon emissions by 1.3 million tons a year. 

KPC intends to select one or more potential firms for the programme which comprises between one and four solar PV plants to be procured on an EPC/O&M basis. The project(s) will be built on the Al-Shagaya Renewable Energy Park which is located 100 Km west of Kuwait City near the borders with Iraq and Saudi Arabia.

Kuwait has one of the highest per capita energy consumption rates globally and domestic demand for electricity has doubled between 2003-2013.
