Clean Energy at the Heart of TRSDC Projects
In line with Saudi Vision 2030, the Red Sea Development Co. is committed to making its destinations 100% run by renewable energy sources.
The clean, green power generation system the company has developed integrates three significant elements, which synchronize to supply renewable and reliable energy for The Red Sea Project and AMAALA.
These elements are photovoltaic cells, a massive battery storage facility, and emergency biodiesel generators.
The photovoltaic system is designed to deliver the power needed across the destination during the daytime while simultaneously charging the battery storage facility. In turn, this system becomes the primary energy source during the nighttime.
To ensure to meet power demand when the sun goes down, The Red Sea Development Co. is building the world's largest battery storage facility today, maximizing cost efficiency.
The goal is to achieve "minimum energy performance" across the development, a prerequisite for LEED or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, the most widely used green building rating system.
To achieve this goal, the company has opted for thermal storage tanks to store excess cooling energy generated during the daytime, materials that offer high insulation levels to reduce heat transfer, and lighting control systems that ensure optimization across the project.
