Solar technology is still in its infancy in terms of its development, but Qatar Solar Technologies (QSTec) is teaming up with Qatar Foundation and German company SolarWorld AG to explore the vast possibilities.
Here’s Qatar Today’s piece on the promise of a new industry in Qatar and the range of research, investment, entrepreneurship and employment opportunities it affords.
A simple example like a morning shower illustrates the impact of the Qatari sun – a cold tap produces very hot water. Temperatures come close to 50 deg C here for much of the year and this extreme brings with it, enormous potential. Qatar Solar Technologies is in the business of harnessing the sun’s rays to produce power for all purposes.
