Saudi study for a vision of nuclear

11 June 2010

A draft renewable and nuclear strategy for Saudia Arabia is to be prepared by the Pöyry consultancy firm. The company said is had been chosen by the KA-CARE organisation, responsible for the future King Abdullah City for Atomic and Renewable Energy, to "help prepare a draft of the national vision and high-level strategy in the area of nuclear and renewable energy applications." This would include details on "strategy, operating model, key short and longer term priorities, immediate initiatives and an action plan." Pöyry said nuclear and renewables will be "key future technologies" in a balance of non-fossil generation as Saudi Arabia's energy needs grow.
