A recent report published by the Orient Planet revealed that the solar energy will take up 76% of sustainable energy plans in Saudi Arabia by 2040. Wind energy will take up 17% despite regional and international economic slowdown.
According to the report, shifting to eco-friendly energies will be a strong potential for Saudi Arabia and all oil-producing GCC countries.
This shift will save up to 87 billion US dollars and will reduce up to 1 gigaton of carbon emissions by 2030.
The “clean energy in the GCC” report sheds light on the wide array of benefits for the GCC economy and the global environment.
The report added that the Gulf countries would stand to gain in terms of job creation, fossil fuel savings and improving the environmental situation in the Gulf.
