Renewable energy makes a minimal contribution to power generation across most of the Middle East, despite it having considerable solar and wind potential. The GCC in particular has low-cost oil and gas production, stifling the renewable industry’s development.

However, according to the latest research report by MEED Insight, “Mena Renewable Energy 2012”, states across the region are planning a substantial hike in renewable energy capacity over the coming decade to meet high power demand growth, limit the use of oil and gas feedstock in power generation, and take advantage of a forecast drop in solar and wind generated electricity.

Presented by Angus Hindley, Research Director at MEED, this online seminar provides a detailed analysis of the existing and future renewable energy sector across the MENA region.
