Shams 1 was the largest renewable energy project in operation in the Middle East when launched, and also the first large-scale commercial CSP plant in that region.



Shams 1 features more than 258,000 mirrors mounted on 768 tracking parabolic trough collectors.




Covering an area of 2.5 square kilometers, equivalent to 285 football fields, Shams 1 generates enough electricity to power 20,000 homes in the UAE.



The site visit to Shams 1 is one part of CSP Focus MENA 2019  pre-conference events.
