British Expertise International – Middle East Access Group & Saudi British Joint Business Council will be hosting a Business Briefing on Tuesday 14 May that will discuss the potential opportunities for British business in the renewables sector in Saudi Arabia. This follows DIT & SBJBC’s Renewable Energy Trade Mission to Riyadh in March. The briefing is an opportunity to discuss the real developments taking place and the experiences of companies currently doing business there.
Energy is a key element in Saudi Arabia’s 2030 Vision and there have been wide reaching reforms and announcements within the sector. These include energy tariff reform; energy sector privatisation and the development of a National Renewable Energy Programme; which is to be over seen by the Renewable Energy Project Development Office (REPDO).
There is a large and developing market for energy generation (both utility and small scale), energy storage, electrical networks and management, with multibillion-dollar investment programmes planned.
Recent announcements include the production of 59 gigawatts (GW) of electricity from solar and wind by 2030 and eventually to produce upward of 200 GW.
The briefing will include panellists with a range of experience within the renewables sector and there will be the opportunity to ask questions and network afterwards.
The briefing is free for SBJBC/BEI members, and £50 (+VAT) for non-members. To register your interest in this event please contact Oliver Grogono.
