Implementation Program


An overview of solar wind energy in the kingdom of bahrain and the gcc states

Onshore potential areas were defined after subtracting from the total areas of Bahrain:

• Residential and touristic areas with a minimum distance of 500m from them

• Industrial and agricultural areas were excluded only when infrastructure existed

• Airports and their surroundings following guidelines from ICAO Protected areas (wild life sanctuary, parks etc.)

Net area available is 218 km2

Offshore potential areas the total areas

were defined by subtracting from the total exclusive economical zone of Bahrain:

• All areas with a water depth larger than 30m

• Areas with visual impact on onshore facilities (10km facing touristic areas and 5km facing residential areas)

• Main shipping lane entering the port with a buffer region around it and all the ‘Bahrain Port Limit’ as specified by the ‘General Organization of Sea Ports’.

Net available area is 4,980 km2

The solar resources in Bahrain are relatively uniform, locations with better wind speed may also be better for solar panels to control the temperature. This means location criteria for Wind and Solar energy are similar

  • Capital Cost : US $ 12 Million

EWA proposed a site located south East. A = 13 hectars

Conclusion locations with better wind speed may also be better for solar panels to control the temperature. This means location criteria for Wind and Solar energy are similar

Solar Energy:

Bahrain and the rest of the GCC states are subjected to very high solar radiation levels during summer months reaching up to 7200 Whr/m2 with an annual mean radiation of 5200 Whr/m2which justifies the use of this energy for small/medium size power generation

Despite the availability of such enormous energy, which is clean and renewable, applications are still very limited in this region. There are only a few ambitious programs for research and development aimed to expand the usage of these energies.

Electricity production and Sea water desalination utilizing Reverse Osmosis process powered by Solar and wind turbines may also be considered for small and medium size plants in remote areas.

Wind Energy: locations with better wind speed may also be better for solar panels to control the temperature. This means location criteria for Wind and Solar energy are similar

Preliminary results show that the average wind ranges between 4.0 and 5.5 m/s. In a windy day wind power is equivalent to about 225 Watt/m2 distributed over 24 hours period.

Because of the frequency of calms, wind power can not contribute significantly to a firm power generation, however, it could be efficiently used in a hybrid wind/solar scheme.

Further research and Studies on wind potential is recommended for developing experience with turbine generators performance and their economics in this region
