The complex is composed of a solar thermal power station, a wind power station and a photovoltaic station, Omar said.


It is designed as a world-class facility with a mix of renewable energy technologies to maximize the efficiency of electricity production per square meter in the Kuwaiti desert, she added.


According to the Kuwaiti official, the complex can help reduce the carbon dioxide emissions by 5 million tons per year.


Meanwhile, Khaled al-Fadhel, Kuwaiti oil minister, described the Shagaya project as a “pioneer” in the country’s ambition to provide 15 percent of its power needs from renewable sources by 2030.
