Qatar’s FIRST Solar Agriculture Greenhouse: Here’s what we know so far
In a step that will bring the peninsular Arab country closer to its sustainable food security goal, Qatar University (QU) is developing the country’s first-ever thermal-insulated greenhouse powered by solar energy.
With its food security goal being achieved rapidly in several areas, Qatar is paving the way for more economic and agricultural prosperity by working on its innovative first thermal insulated greenhouse.
“Qatar has set food security as a priority for the country and set out a commitment to sustain about 70 percent self-sufficiency on greenhouse vegetables. Achieving sustainable food security was further ascertained by the ongoing geopolitical tensions and the imposed blockade on the country,” said a lead researcher of the greenhouse project.
