Renewable energy usage has been growing significantly over the past 12 months. This trend will continue to increase as solar power prices reach grid parity. In 2019, the global estimated additions of solar photovoltaic (PV) reached almost 138 GW. Within the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, the increased industrial activity and drive towards renewables is reflected in each country’s strategy. Continuous population growth and economic development have placed pressure on existing power assets and in some cases, created a significant gap between electricity production and demand. Affordable renewable energies in the region – mainly solar – have become an obvious solution. Middle East Solar Industries Association (MESIA) recently published MENA Solar and Renewable Energy Report, highlighting the key trends and opportunities in the renewable power sector in the region.
