Abu Dhabi, the most oil-rich of the United Arab Emirates, is now home to the world's single-largest concentrated solar power plant.
The 100-megawatt Shams 1 plant cost an estimated $750 million and is expected to provide electricity to 20,000 homes, according to the BBC.

Problems continue to mount for bankrupt solar panel maker Abound Solar. The company is now in violation of Colorado’s hazardous waste laws.
