Special Projects

Around the world, many communities are not connected to the national grid. Masdar has a variety of solutions to ensure renewable energy reaches remote areas to increase jobs and energy security, while cutting fuel costs and carbon emissions. From tiny Pacific Island micro-grids and rural solar home systems in Afghanistan and Morocco, to onshore wind in the Republic of Seychelles and off-grid solar projects in Egypt and Mauritania, Masdar has been working with partners to deploy clean energy projects that are changing lives and livelihoods.

Across 16 Caribbean and 11 Pacific Islands, Masdar has been delivering renewable energy projects to help reduce reliance on fuel imports, increase energy access, and enhance climate resilience. The solar and wind projects are part of the UAE-Caribbean Renewable Energy Fund and the UAE-Pacific Partnership Fund. Both initiatives are funded by the Abu Dhabi Fund for Development and worth US$50 million each.

A consortium led by Masdar was awarded the 1,100MW Al Henakiyah project, after a successful tender process by SPPC. The project entails developing, financing, constructing, and operating of the 1,100MWac PV plant, to be located in the Al Henakiyah region of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The plant is expected to start commercial operation in 2026.
