Saudi Arabia Seeks 3.7GW of Solar Projects
Saudi Arabia is seeking to add 7.2 GW of solar capacity through NREP's fifth round and is inviting developers to participate in the process. The country is aiming to build projects with a total capacity of 3.7 GW, located in four different regions. The largest project in the round is Al Sadawi with a capacity of 2 GW and located in the Eastern Province. Two other projects of 400 MW and 300 MW are planned in Al Madinah region and Makkah region, respectively, while the remaining 1 GW is expected to be installed in the Hail region. The country recently signed offtake deals with developers for two projects -- Al Henakiyah and Tabarjal -- and is now moving forward with NREP's fifth round. What is Saudi Arabia's NREP Round 5? The fifth round of the National Renewable Energy Program (NREP) of Saudi Arabia is an initiative to add 7.2 gigawatts (GW) of solar capacity. The Government of Saudi Arabia is inviting developers to participate in building projects with a total capacity of 3.7 GW. Al Sadawi is the largest project in the round with a capacity of 2 GW located in the Eastern Province. Two other projects of 400 MW and 300 MW are planned in Al Madinah region and Makkah region, respectively. The remaining 1 GW is expected to be installed in the Hail region. The country recently signed offtake deals with developers for two projects -- Al Henakiyah and Tabarjal. Project developers are promised long-term power purchase agreements with competitive rates. The NREP is part of the Kingdom’s larger goal to generate 50 percent of its electricity needs from renewable energy sources by 2030.

Saudi Arabia launches 1.2 GW solar tender
Saudi Arabia’s Renewable Energy Project Development Office (REPDO) has opened the request-for-qualification process related to a tender for 1.2 GW of solar generation capacity. REPDO will use the third round of the kingdom’s National Renewable Energy Program to select developers to construct four solar power projects, with generation capacities of 80, 120, 300 and a mammoth 700 MW. The Saudi government stated the selected projects must contain at least 17% local content. The deadline to pre-qualify for the tender is February 6. In March, REPDO said the second round of the program – intended to allocate 1.5 GW of large scale solar capacity – attracted 250 bidders. In July, the administrative body said the number of bidders had been narrowed down to 60, 28 of which are based in Saudi Arabia. The final results of the exercise are yet to be announced. In the first round of the procurement program, REPDO assigned 300 MW of solar generation capacity to a single facility, the Sakaka solar project which is now operational. That first tender attracted global attention by attracting the lowest solar electricity price ever bid, with French energy giant EDF offering to generate solar power for a levelized cost of SAR0.06697/kWh ($0.018). That bid was rejected, however, with Saudi energy giant ACWA taking the prize with an offer of SAR0.08872/kWh.

The institutional tranche, that makes up 90 percent of the IPO, was 248 times oversubscribed, bring in SR1.127 trillion. ACWA is transforming itself for reduced carbon manufacturing as well as asserted to double its power production outcome over the next 5 years, with renewables making up a majority share. In April this year, ACWA Power has announced the opening of a utility-scale solar renewable energy project in the country. The 300MW Sakaka PV independent power manufacturer (IPP), which was constructed with an investment of SAR1. 2bn ($319m), was ushered in by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of Saudi Arabia. In August, the firm announced the economic close for the 1500 MW Sudair Solar plant, the biggest PV station in Saudi Arabia. It is a key project under the Public Investment Fund (PIF) renewable energy program that intends to sustain the nation's recurring power shift and diversity, and also to deliver 70% of the nation's renewable energy under the National Renewable Energy Program (NREP). ACWA has also revealed that at the beginning of 2022, the company will issue eco-friendly bonds for funding its renewable energy projects. It already has actually 5 projects accredited for green finance, which with each other will certainly call for around $10 billion in funding. Furthermore, this year, the Crown Prince revealed a campaign to have 50% of electricity generation from renewables in Saudi Arabia. The kingdom also prepares to reach 58.7 GW of advancing renewable energy capability by 2030 and also 27.3 GW by 2024. This signals a turn in the direction of renewables taken by Middle East superpowers, of which exports are controlled by oil. ACWA will aid establish 70% of projects in Saudi Arabia. Whether the country can deliver on is energy improvement plan will be noted worldwide, yet it does seem that ACWA will play a vital role in the upcoming initiatives towards power change, particularly following its IPO. The stock will have plus/minus 30 percent daily rate fluctuation limits and plus/minus 10 percent static cost change limits, according to a declaration on the Saudi Securities Market (Tadawul). These fluctuation limits will certainly be used during the very first three days of listing, as well as from the 4th trading day onwards, the everyday rate variation limits will certainly go back to plus/minus 10 percent and also the fixed rate variation limits will certainly no longer use.
