As part of the Arab Renewable Energy Congress, and under the patronage of HRH Prince Asem Bin Nayef, Wind Power MENA will be held in partnership with the Jordanian Renewable Energy Society and the Arab Renewable Energy Commission.
The MENA region is opening its doors to wind power. Leading the way are Morocco and Egypt, whose well-established policy frameworks have led to installed capacities of 280MW and 550MW respectively, figures that will rapidly increase as planned projects come online, with targeted capacities of 2.5 GW and 7.2 GW by 2020.
Wind atlases reveal that there is a great deal of untapped potential in the Middle East and North Africa for developing successful wind projects. National governments across the region are realising the need to reduce their traditional dependence on oil and gas and look towards renewable sources, and are reacting by establishing suitable policy frameworks and targets, whilst pushing the first projects.
The first wind farms and opportunities to develop are emerging in countries including Jordan, Tunisia, Yemen, Algeria and UAE, whilst further countries are expressing an interest in capitalising on the wind sector in the coming years.
Wind power MENA will provide a platform for discussion, networking and solutions to facilitate the scaling-up and wider expansion of the wind industry in the region. Hear about the key movements in policy across the region from numerous national government representatives, learn from the experienced developers of the pioneering case studies, and discover the potential for future growth in the Arab wind industry.
