Saudi Arabia is planning to commission several solar and wind energy grand projects, through its Vision 2030, which are expected to produce over 59 gigawatts of power over the next 20 years.
Discuss these national grand projects by trying to address the following points:
1. Viability of the projects and economic impact to the Kingdom, and in the gulf region, both on the short and long term.
2. Competitiveness with existing fossil fuels both on the short and long run
3. Impact of the technology on the environment both locally and in the region
4. The position of the Kingdom globally in terms of renewable energy sources
