  • Qatar Launches National Strategy to Boost Renewable Energy Mix
Qatar is making significant strides toward a sustainable future with the launch of its Qatar National Renewable Energy Strategy (QNRES), developed by the Qatar General Electricity and Water Corp (Kahramaa). This initiative aims to integrate renewable energy sources, particularly solar power, into the nation's energy mix. Coordinated with 22 key energy actors, the strategy aligns with the Qatar National Vision 2030 and the Third Qatar National Development Strategy 2024-2030. The plan targets expanding renewable power generation capacity to 4 gigawatts by 2030, with distributed solar generation contributing 200 megawatts. This decentralization will enhance energy resilience, reduce electricity generation costs by 15%, and significantly cut carbon emissions. Kahramaa will oversee regulatory practices, licensing, compliance, and the deployment of renewable energy systems, including a net-billing system that allows prosumers to sell surplus electricity back to the grid. This initiative marks a crucial step in redefining Qatar's energy landscape, promising substantial economic and environmental benefits.
