1. MOHAMMED BIN RASHID AL MAKTOUM SOLAR PARK: Largest planned solar farm under construction
Site Area: 77 square kilometers
Output: 5,000 gigawatts planned by 2030
The 213MW Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park may pale in comparison to other facilities, but it has big plans for the future. The solar park has planned improvements that are expected to generate 1,000 MW by 2020 and an incredible 5,000 MW by 2030. Not only will it be the largest solar park in the world, but it also will have the world’s tallest solar energy tower. The 260-meter tower is part of phase four of development and will contribute 700MW to the plant’s total output.
