Al Sadd Stadium in Doha is set to become Qatar's first solar-powered stadium, Qatar Olympic Committee Secretary-General Sheikh Saoud bin Abdulrahman al Thani has announced on the sidelines of the COP18 Summit, reports The Peninsula.

The project will be completed by 2014, a year before the World Handball Championship is hosted in Doha in 2015.

"We plan to use solar power not only in the upcoming stadia, but also in the existing ones," said Sheikh Saoud. It is believed that Al Sadd will also boast a grey and black water recycling plant.

The solar-powered stadia initiative is part of a larger sustainability initiative underway in Qatar. "Development of two environmentally-sustainable gardens, namely Olympic Garden and Desert Garden, is underway," confirmed Shekih Saoud.
