The Saudi Power Procurement Company (SPPC) has initiated a fifth round of solar projects under the National Renewable Energy Program (NREP) with an accumulated capacity of 3,700 megawatts (MW), with the release of a request for qualification (RFQ).

All are operated under NREP with its goal of achieving an optimal energy portfolio, a displacement of liquid fuel in the power sector, and a 50% supplication of electricity through renewable energy by 2030.
At present, SPPC has granted over 12.6 gigawatts of renewable energy capacity under the supervision of NREP.
