As the UN summit on climate change is about to begin in Doha this week there will be an increased focus on the renewable energy plans of the fossil fuel rich countries around the Gulf.

Using this increased focus to gain positive attention it is unsurprising to note that several states have come out with new plans to accelerate investment in renewable energy, and advance the battle against climate change, including Qatar, Abu Dhabi, and Dubai.

Saudi Arabia has announced that it is ready to begin work on its first ever major solar project at the beginning of next year. Khalid al-Suliman, the vice president of the King Abdullah City for Atomic and Renewable Energy, has stated that everything is set to go on the ambitious solar strategy, which will see 41GW installed by 2032 at a cost of $109 billion, they are now just waiting for final approval from the government.
