The third quarter of 2014 saw Saudi Arabia double its CSP project pipeline capacity with the request from the Saudi Electricity Company (SEC) that a 50 MW CSP plant be included within the 1 GW Waad Al-Shamal shale gas project in Tarif. 

Currently the market boosts a 50 MW announced capacity with the Waad Al Shamal Power Plant and 50 MW project in development with Duba 1.  The latest project signals a positive development in a market which to-date has been characterized by a lot of promise but little tangible activity.
