  • Riyadh Saudi Arabia (map)

SBJBC in partnership with the Department for International Trade organised a renewable energy trade mission to Riyadh 18-20 March. The mission included the following meetings:

  • Briefing by SAGIA, REPDO, ECRA and KaCare on project opportunities and regulatory structures.

  • Visit to SABIC’s Home of Innovation Centre to see model carbon neutral home and be briefed on SABIC’s renewable energy and local content initiatives.

  • Meeting with ACWA Power, a leading developer and operator of power generation projects, which is 33% owned by PIF, and 60% by Abu Nayyan Group.

  • Networking dinner reception at the British Embassy.

  • Business Roundtable hosted by the Council of Saudi Chambers in partnership with SBJBC and Eversheds Sutherland to discuss the private PPA market for off-grid solar energy.

Feedback was positive from both sides and we expect multiple partnerships and contracts to develop as a result. We look forward to hearing about this progress from delegates in the near future.
