"K.A.CARE was established by Royal order A/35 of H.M. King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud on 17th April 2010 with the fundamental aim of building a sustainable future for Saudi Arabia by developing a substantial alternative energy capacity fully supported by world-class local industries."

The 54 GW renewable electricity target is considered to be de facto national target.

In 2015, the timeline for installing the 54GW renewable power capacity was moved backward by 8 years to 2040.
