Doha's Al Saad Stadium To Become Qatar's First Solar-Powered Stadium
Qatar Olympic Committee Secretary General Sheikh Saoud bin Abdulrahman al Thani said that the Al Sadd Stadium in Doha is set to become Qatar's "first solar-powered stadium," according to THE PENINSULA. The project "will be completed" by '14, a year before the World Handball Championship is hosted in Doha in '15. Sheikh Saoud said, "We plan to use solar power not only in the upcoming stadia, but also in the existing ones." It is believed that the arena will also "boast a grey and black water recycling plant" (THE PENINSULA, 12/5).
