The MENA region possesses the greatest technical potential for renewable
energy in the world with much of this potential attributed to solar energy.
This potential is now starting to be more seriously considered, driven by
rapidly increasing energy usage, high insolation rates, a young and empowered
workforce, and an increasing awareness of the costs of burning natural
The United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Turkey, and Morocco, have
ambitious solar power generation goals as well as evolving policies and
regulatory frameworks to support these goals. Demonstration projects are being
deployed in some countries, while large scale projects are being deployed in
others. However, in a region undergoing dramatic political and social change,
questions remain as to the long term outlook for solar energy. In this report,
we discuss the drivers for adoption, the major players and stakeholders, the
overall market structure, and the long term outlook of each solar market in
the MENA region.
This 103-page report examines energy scenarios driving solar growth in the
MENA region and examines the current and projected solar policies for each
country analyzed. The report also provides strategic analysis and a
competitive outlook on the companies active in each market. In addition, the
report offers solar (PV and CSP) project details for each market along with
country-specific demand forecasts to 2017.
