When it comes to inspirational figures who have made a mark in their professional lives and created substantial impact through their work, Qatar is very fortunate.

Success Story

Design, sustainability, and practicality- QNRF-funded project combines all three to produce a viable solution to utilize solar energy

QNRF PR 0 2249

Qatar not only has a wealth of natural oil and gas but also receives high and relatively consistent incident solar radiation (insolation) throughout the year making solar photovoltaic (PV) systems a viable clean energy source to power the country. The Government of Qatar has set a target to generate 20% of the electricity from solar power by 2030. Therefore, efforts need to be made to harness the energy from the sun through PV for domestic electricity production to reduce dependability on hydrocarbons, reduce the emissions of greenhouse gases, and help Qatar emerge as a regional leader in sustainable energy development.
