Abdul Latif Jameel Energy has reaffirmed its own commitment by deepening and expanding its presence not only in this region, but also in emerging solar markets around the world. Today, we are leading projects in the Middle East, Australia, Africa and Latin America. We have also opened new offices in the United States and India, quickly followed by being awarded a number of new projects.
We are successfully reducing carbon emissions and driving technological advances to enable the next generation of solar plants to be more effective than ever, making energy from renewable sources ever more affordable and in reach of all.
Since acquiring FRV in 2015, Abdul Latif Jameel Energy has increased its project pipeline by nearly half, to 4.8 GWdc.
While we bring regional knowledge and financial capability to the table, FRV brings its extensive global experience in engineering, development and construction of solar installations.
Our combined strength makes us the largest GCC-based solar photovoltaic developer and one of the largest in the world.
Currently, we’re exploring new photovoltaic solar opportunities within the MENAT region and beyond.
In line with our ongoing commitment to economic development, we place a key focus on building a sustainable legacy in countries where we establish projects. We aim to create jobs at all levels, including the training of the local workforces to create renewable energy expertise within that country.
