Al-Shagaya renewable energy project "is a go" -- KISR
Director General of Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research (KISR) Dr. Sameera Al-Sayyed Omar indicated on Tuesday that the ambitious Al-Shagaya Project for renewable energy has begun building a solar power station and a wind power station to be ostensibly completed toward the year's end.
 
Dr. Omar revealed that in a press statement after having met today with His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah along with Minister of Education and Minister of Higher Education Dr. Bader Hamad Al-Essa.
 
She thanked His Highness the Amir for his support of the Al-Shagaya Project and for having taken under his care the 6th Middle East and North Africa Renewable Energy Conference (MENAREC 6) which was held in Kuwait in April. She also thanked His Highness the Crown Prince for his interest in the Project.
 
Al-Shagaya Project is part of the Innovative Renewable Energy Research program at KISR, which -- when completed -- will be comprised of three main facilities, a concentrated solar power plant and two facilities for wind and PV research.
 
In a similar press statement, Dr. Salem Al-Hajraf, Manager of KISR's Renewable Energy Program, said that a number of recommendations emanated from (MENAREC 6) urging governments to rely less on oil to produce electricity and more on solar and wind power.
 
The recommendations also advised that at least 15 percent of energy should be produced from renewable sources by the year 2030, he said.

These stations will be built through a partnership between the public and private sectors.
