RC-Yanbu Solar Energy Initiatives RC Yanbu’s Major Initiatives IDEA Polysilicon Company project under design (SR 2.8 billion investment) to produce 10,000 tons/year polysilicon, 20 million wafers & 19 million solar cells per year. Hydrogen gas network to capture hydrogen from industrial processes and purify to yield a 19.4% energy savings for industrial users. Upgrade RC-Yanbu Facilities for LEED certification. Activate citywide Smart Solar Application Program. Provide Green building demonstration for the public . RC-Yanbu Solar Energy Initiatives RC-Yanbu Energy Support Program Educational Campaign – Initiate a major public relations campaign to inform the public about the environmental & financial benefits of using solar energy. Offer a Sustainable Design Center – Construct an exhibit building that will feature state-of-the-art features to inform the public of solar energy applications in their homes & businesses. Solar Training Programs – Establish classes in Yanbu Technical Institute to train students for solar industry manufacturing jobs. Create a Solar Energy Cluster – Set aside prime area in Industrial Park for companies that produce solar & renewable energy products. RC-Yanbu Solar Energy Initiatives Suitability for Solar Manufacturing in Yanbu Criteria for Success Royal Commission at Yanbu Regulatory Structure RC regulatory structure offer high flexibility. Accessible Capital Access to a number of financing agencies Adequately trained workforce • Yanbu Industrial College & Yanbu University Colleges • Yanbu Technical Institute • An annual average of 1300 technical graduates . Other RC-Yanbu Ready industrial sites with infrastructure. Advantages Existing chemical industries offer raw materials to support production Excellent Industrial Port for import & export materials and products Potential for RC to construct buildings as an incentive RC-Yanbu Solar Energy Initiatives Concluding Remarks RC Yanbu has launched the Energy Efficiency Program and Solar Energy Initiatives targeting 10% consumption reduction of todays practice based on the directions of HE the EP of the Royal Commission inYanbu and in line with Saudi Energy Efficiency Center regulations. Yanbu Industrial City has all suitable conditions for solar energy clusters development. With the Royal Commission's ability and firm commitment to serving investors, great investment opportunities lie ahead particularly in the solar energy industry. RC-Yanbu Solar Energy Initiatives Cont.: Concluding Remarks Using energy efficiencies techniques and renewables will help RC cities maintain and strengthen the progressive investment trend since its start. 120 “Sustainable Industrial Development” 100 80 60 40 20 0 Number of Industries in Operation Royal Commission for Jubail & Yanbu Royal Commission at Yanbu Thank You!
