Project Development

 

QSTP Solar Testing Facility

The Solar Test Facility was conceptualized in 2009 with Qatar Science and Technology Park to develop a testing center for various solar technologies and their performance to the region's dusty and warm climate. The data gatered can be used to develop technologies and approaches specific for the region. It was formally inaugurated in 2012 alongside the UNFCCC COP18 hosted by Doha. The event was attended by the facility's patroness, HH Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, among other dignitaries from the COP18.

 

Qatar National Convention Centre

GreenGulf, in partnership with Enviromena, won the bid in April 2010 and completed the project in September 2011. The 667kW PV system provides the building with 12.5% of its electricity needs. The QNCC rooftop project is the first major solar installation in Qatar and one of the largest rooftop installations in the Gulf.

 

Qatar Foundation Bus Shelters

Qatar Foundation appointed GreenGulf Project Manager for 8 train shelters scattered around Education City, with LED lights powered by off-grid PV systems on September 2011.

 

Qatar Foundation Smart Grid

The QF Solar Smart Grid project is composed of 3.3 MW of PV installations throughout various locaitons in Qatar Foundation and generates 5,180 MW of clean energy annually.
 
This project consists of the following:
  • 0.782 MW of PV carpark shades at various locations
  • 0.900 MW of rooftop PV systems at Texas A&M university, Carnegie Mellon University, Weill Cornell University and Georgetown University
  • 0.250 MW at the Solar Test Facility in QSTP 
  • 0.667 MW of rooftop PV at the QNCC
  • 0.737 MW at the QF Student Housing Complex

In addition, an Energy Monitoring Centre (EMC) is enabling real-time administration of solar and power quality monitoring systems, allowing for the analysis of potential performance and communication alerts across the scattered sites.​

With the EMC connected to the Kahramaa Conservation and Efficiency Control Centre, Qatar Foundation's solar energy generation will now feed energy back into the central power grid. This is the first commercial solar project that obtained official grid connection approval from Kahramaa.

 

Kahramaa Demonstration System

GreenGulf installed a 26 kW system at the Kahramaa National Command Center. The installation and commissioning of the system was completed in April 2014. GreenGulf also facilitated the first commercial solar project to obtain official grid connection approval from Kahramaa, paving the way for future grid connected installations throughout the country.
