Evening Get-Together

January 31, 2024

The conference with four program sessions focusing on:

The land of the world’s lowest solar LCOEs

Although it is potential remains largely untapped, the Saudi PV market has already shown great fundamentals and unmatched dynamism, especially in the large scale PV business, where huge projects are being developed and built and record low prices were achieved.

In this session, experts and analysts from local and international companies will discuss the perspectives of this segment and the challenges that must still be addressed to further reduce prices and foster innovation.

Key points of the session:

  • Levelized cost of energy (LCOE) in Saudi Arabia
  • Quick analysis on most recent auctions
  • Prospects for PPAs and unsubsidized projects
  • Solar module and inverter procurement and supply
  • Logistics and O&M


The EPC contest

The construction of large-scale solar parks in Saudi Arabia is setting standards for the global PV community and the entire world, with the most important EPC contractors competing to achieve the best-performing projects.

In this session, representatives of EPC companies, project developers and investment firms will discuss the best construction practices, as well as the challenges in building solar plants in difficult environmental conditions.

Key points of the session:

  • Project development and construction
  • Authorizations and planning
  • Transport and logistics
  • Operation and Maintenance

Solar module techs for the desert

The construction a PV project in Saudi Arabia, regardless of the size, requires an attentive analysis of the components to be used, as these would have to endure high temperatures and significant levels of soiling.

In this session, we will discuss with industry experts and representatives of manufacturers about the importance of choosing highly reliable products when operating in the Saudi market, as well as of how to better procure these products.

Key points of the session:

  • Modules and inverters
  • Mounting systems
  • Supply chain issues
  • Domestic manufacturing


Linking to storage, hydrogen, CPS

Saudi Arabia has the chance of turning itself in an innovation hub for all those clean energy technologies that are somehow solar-related.

In this session, we will seek to ascertain if the Saudi market can be home to ambitious green hydrogen project or innovative hybrid storage configurations. We will also discuss if the CSP (concentrated solar power) technology has the potential to challenge the primacy of PV or if it may be used in complementarity.

Key points of the session:

  • Green hydrogen projects and prices
  • Storage deployment and prices
  • Potential of CSP projects
  • Other clean energy technologies
