The Master Plan of the Shagaya Renewable Energy Park in Kuwait
Yousuf Al-Abdulla | Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research, Kuwait City, Kuwait

Kuwait is developing a large (2G) renewable energy facility, including solar and wind, called Shagaya. Kuwait is located on the north end of the Arabian Gulf and experiences the full range of weather conditions through-out the year. The Shagaya facility is located in the desert west of Kuwait city. Several Kuwaitis are visiting NCAR to learn more about renewable power forecasting for the Shagaya facility. This seminar will cover the current plans for renewable energy in Kuwait and highlight areas where they are looking for further collaboration. 

Yousef Al-Abdullah received a B.S. degree in electrical engineering from Arizona State University, Tempe, in 2007 and a M.S. degree in electrical and computer engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, in 2009, and in 2016 he earned his Ph.D. in electrical engineering from ASU. As part of his dissertation he investigated constraint relaxation and out-of-market correction practices in electric energy markets. Upon finishing his degree, he returned to the Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research and is part of the Renewable Energy Program within the Energy and Building Research Center.
