Saudi Arabia is aiming to intensify the adoption and the advocacy of their renewable energy sector, to localise 30% in the short term and 60% in the long term of its value chain. To achieve this, a local content market should be large enough to supply the planned 27GW capacity contained with 35+ renewable energy farms by 2024 with additional capacity of 59GW by 2030. Although Saudi Arabia has excellent natural wind and solar resources, the current skills are not adequate for planned future expansion in renewable energy. The research aims to identify means to reduce this skills shortage and proposes practical recommendations as to how to achieve this through robust research on KSA’s supply chains and how this can be adapted and augmented to support the above targets.
