Qatar National Convention Centre

Project Description

A 667 kW solar power project installed to the roof of the Qatar National Convention Center. This project was the largest solar photovoltaic power system in Qatar to date. Enviromena partnered with Doha-based renewable energy company GreenGulf to deliver the system, which was constructed with solar modules supplied by SolarWorld.

The solar power system has been operational since December 2011 and produces 1,225 MWh of electricity per year. This provides 12.5% of the building’s total power needs, offsetting 1,140 tons of carbon emissions per year, and contributing to the building’s gold certification under the LEED green building program.

Designed by Japanese architect Arata Isozaki, the $US 1.2 billion Qatar National Convention Centre provides 40,000 m2 of convention space and include a 2,300 seat theatre and auditoriums.
