The Middle East’s power sector is undergoing an unprecedented transformation as utilities strive to improve efficiency and diversify energy sources for electricity production. Governments are seeking to reduce costs and carbon emissions through new technologies and alternative fuels for power generation.

The best way to reduce pressure on government balance sheets and improve efficiency of power networks is through forming partnerships with the private sector to develop, operate and maintain the region’s generation facilities. Recent volatility in the oil market has further strengthened the resolve of the region’s governments to seek private partners to assist with delivery and financing of electricity projects.

To understand more about these evolving market dynamics, MEED is bringing together key players in the region’s energy and financial sectors to discuss financing projects in the Middle East’s rapidly changing power industry.

During this special one-hour broadcast in partnership with GE, our panelists – key decision makers and facilitators involved with financing major power projects – will provide expert commentary and analysis of the growing role of investors in delivering the region’s power plans, and deliver their thoughts and forecasts for the future financing requirements of the Middle East’s rapidly growing power market.

Joining MEED for the special broadcast are:

  • Tom Koczwara, director of debt management office for finance, government of Sharjah
  • Rajit Nanda, chief investment officer, Acwa Power
  • Yusuf al-Khan, managing director, head of trade for Middle East, North Africa, Pakistan and Turkey, Citi
  • Ahmed Ramadan, CEO North East Africa and CFO for MENAT global growth operations, GE


This free-to-attend broadcast is your opportunity to listen to and engage with industry experts representing some of the biggest energy and finance players in the region.
