This report builds on input from a regional long-term planning workshop to address the challenges of scaling up solar and wind power in Arab countries.
This report explores the prospects for renewables to diversify national economies and the combined GCC energy mix, while helping the region meet climate goals.
This study examines the policy, regulatory, financial and capacity-related challenges that the country has to address to meet targets for renewables to make up 42% of the country’s electricity mix by 2035.
This study assesses the potential for manufacturing renewable energy components and examines each country’s supply chain, existing industrial structure and export opportunities for technology components in each sector.
The potential for widespread deployment of renewable energy technologies in the Arab region is considerable.
This report provides a region-wide pre-feasibility assessment of solar and wind opportunities in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region, for both grid connected and off-grid systems. The outcome includes high resolution maps (1 km resolution) indicating suitable areas for solar and wind energy projects on land, taking account of resource intensity, distance to power grids,...
This study assesses the capability of the European Union’s Mediterranean Partner Countries (MPCs) to develop local renewable energy manufacturing industries, with a focus on three pilot countries: Morocco, Tunisia and Egypt.
Mauritania possesses significant renewable energy resources, which could be developed to strengthen the economy and improve access to energy. Solar and wind energy technologies are well suited for integration into the country’s existing network of mini-grids, according to this Renewables Readiness Assessment (RRA) report released by the International Renewable Energy...
A Renewables Readiness Assessment (RRA) identifies the actions needed to overcome a country’s barriers to renewable energy deployment, with IRENA providing technical support and expertise to facilitate consultations among different national stakeholders.
The Pan-Arab Renewable Energy Strategy adopted in 2013 represents a consensus across the League of Arab States on pursuing a sustainable energy future. The strategy calls for large-scale development of the Arab region’s enormous renewable energy potential, including resources for renewable electricity generation, by the year 2030.
