About Renewable Resources

Saudi Arabia has a wealth of renewable energy resources which can contribute to a sustainable energy mix for the Kingdom.

Solar Energy

Renewable energy resources are those that can be naturally replenished and not depleted.  Renewable energy resources can produce electricity or support energy-intensive processes such as water desalination, with only a small impact on the environment and typically very low emissions of climate-altering greenhouse gases.  Renewable resources such as solar energy and wind energy are variable, changing as weather, seasons, and dust conditions change.  Resource forecasting and energy storage methods allow such variable renewable resources to effectively contribute to meeting energy demands.
