Take 5: update 1…

July 9, 2010

At mention of Kuwait and Qatar as the obvious “one or two” we have been reminded of the more, if less obvious, efforts being undertaken.. like the Sham 1 near Abu Dhabi(UAE)..

“The largest concentrated solar power (CSP) plant in the Middle East is to be built in Madinat Zayed, approximately 120 km (75 miles) southwest of Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). When it becomes operational in 2012, the plant, dubbed Shams 1, will feature some 6,300,000 square-feet of solar parabolic collectors, cover 741 acres of desert and will produce enough electricity to power 62,000 households.”

To hand also news of Qatar’s newest membership — IREA.

Upscale being the name of their waiting game.
