Qatar’s ambitious plans to diversify its energy supplies have taken a huge leap forward thanks to ground-breaking new research into solar power.
The Qatar Environment and Energy Research Institute (QEERI), a Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development (QF) national research institute, has discovered the chemical secrets of a new material that could make the generation of solar energy far more economical, and finally unleash the potential of this abundant renewable resource.
The breakthrough is ultimately expected to contribute to QF’s mission of building Qatar’s innovation and technology capacity, ensuring the sustainable development of energy that will benefit this country, as well as the rest of the world, a statement said.
According to scientific experts, the natural power of the sun supplies the Gulf state with the annual equivalent of 1.5 million barrels of oil per square kilometre.
