    The Qatar proposal would utilize 80% of YGE's capacity

    DOHA: An estimated 80 percent of Qatar’s total water desalination process would be soon powered by solar energy. The country’s proposed 1,800MW solar project is in the final stage. Once the project becomes operational, Qatar’s water needs would be mainly met through solar energy, announced Fahad bin Mohammed Al Attiya, Chairman of the Organising Sub-Committee for COP18/CMP8 .

    “The time is right and we are now in a final design stage of putting together the solar plant which will generate 1,800mw power from 2014 onwards and would potentially produce 80 percent of our water needs through harnessing solar power”, he said while addressing the media yesterday.

    Qatar’s aquifers have almost depleted. We need a sustainable system to generate water, he added.

    Qatar realises the fact that it is critically vulnerable. The country imports 90 percent of its total food demand. We will look into how it is impacting on our environment.

    Al Attiya said there is an increasing tendency of countries putting more and more restrictions on their export quota. This shows climate change is becoming risky. Qatar’s recently launched Food Security Programme is aimed at addressing this concern.

    Replying to a query, Al Attiya said Qatar’s emission slash and development programme would go hand in hand. The country is committed to ensure that its economic growth is happening at the cost of its delicate environment. The Qatar National Vision 2030, reaffirms this commitment, he said.

    On Qatar’s legacy of hosting COP18, Al Attiya told reporters they can expect an announcement regarding this on December 5, 2012 at the COP18 venue. However, he said Qatar’s green initiatives are not just COP-related.

    Speaking on Qatar’s commitment to Civil Society Engagement on Climate Change issues, Khalid Al Mohannadi, Co-Founder of Doha Oasis, said the government is supporting both local and regional NGOs in a big way. These NGOs are working on action plans on how to change the planet earth how to make it a much better place to live in.

    Khalid said thousands of green activists will march in Doha tomorrow raising the slogan “One environment, one people and one earth”.

    • PowerGen to discuss region’s core projects

      Sunday, 03 February 2013

      DOHA: The Public Works Authority’s (Ashghal) flagship QR10bn re-sewerage project will feature in the spotlight session of upcoming Doha PowerGen conference. The Middle East conference will also discuss the region’s mega upcoming projects including Jordan’s water sector, Iraq’s w waste water sector and the desalination developments across the Middle East.

      The organisers said yesterday that the conference will feature a country spotlight too. The other sessions will expand on GCC Interconnection: Promoting Power Trade and Renewable Integration with presentations including “Maximising Today’s Grid Potential and Tomorrow’s Alternatives, Nuclear Power in the Middle East and Integrating Renewable Generation” into the Mena Energy Mix. These hot topics will look at a smart road to sustainable energy future and opportunities and challenges of nuclear energy in the Middle East as well as the future role of solar energy in the Middle East.

      Sessions that are likely to attract great interest in the WaterWorld Middle East programme include Privatisation Progress, Water Resource Management, Desalination Operational Challenges and Utility Management.

      PowerGen Middle East & WaterWorld Middle East has a distinguished reputation as being one of the leading platforms for experts, decision makers and industry leaders to come together to discuss important issues and share knowledge about the latest research and technologies as well as lessons learned about influential projects, the organisers said.

      In the coming years, far more attention will need to be placed on demand supply management of power and water. To ensure sustainable growth in the long-term, more investment needs to be channeled towards energy-efficiency measures such as clean fuel and renewable energy supplies, improving water efficiency, investing in new water desalination capacity, said Debbie Stanford-Kristiansen, International Events Director at PennWell Corporation Middle East.

      She said multi-billion-dollar projects are on the cards in the GCC and other Arab countries, including nearly $17bn in Saudi Arabia in 2013. Projects worth about $4.2bn are also planned in the UAE and Kuwait.

      She said that rising oil and gas prices combined with increasing domestic power requirements are prompting GCC governments to increase investments in the power and water sector, as well as secure alternative sources of energy.

      “Financing for future projects needs to come from private financial corporations such as the International Finance Corporation which is part of the World Bank Group, together with a consortium of international development finance institutions. Lenders include other banks and Infrastructure Funds,” she said.
