The first solar power plant in the Arab world "Shams 1" was launched in Abu Dhabi by the Emirati company "Masdr." Launching the plant was an occasion to look into the future of this renewable energy to produce electricity in the Arab world. It is undoubted that Middle Eastern countries enjoy a lot of sun and vast spaces to carry out such projects. Currently most of the electricity is produced through oil or gas in the Arab world. This is very expansive for all countries. Therefore replacing part of this oil or gas used to produce electricity with solar plants has economic benefits since the price of the techniques used to develop solar energy is not as expansive.
The cost of the project "Shams 1" to produce 100 megawatts of electricity, which provides around 20,000 houses with power, was 600 million dollars. This is a very high level because of the technique resorted to as lines of reflective mirrors are used to concentrate sunlight and water is heated to use its vapor to produce electricity.
The price of another technique to use solar energy has recently decreased. The technique uses photovoltaic cells and sand. This energy to produce electricity is less costly. It is also a clean energy. This technique is being developed and modernized quickly and continuously. Saudi, the top oil producer in the world, is currently working to launch a huge solar energy project that aims to replace its consumption of local oil to produce electricity. The kingdom consumes around 800,000 barrels of its own oil to produce local electricity and fuel. Developing solar energy enables oil countries to save oil and export it for 100 dollars per barrel.
