Kier Group provided the 500-seater stadium with 512 Mitsubishi 185 W polycrystalline solar PV modules and 6 SMA 1500 TL phase inverters. The solar farm is located outside the stadium.

The stadium, designed by Arup Associates also features a solar cooling system.

Qatar plans to build 12 full-size carbon neutral stadiums based on the test stadium for the 2022 World Cup.
