Topic Highlights

The programme will address themes including the following:

  • Ministry of Energy and Water launched the Expression of Interest to build PV farms as part of the National Renewable Energy Action Plan – interest is high with 265 companies submitting proposals
  • Government needs to address power needs due to impact of Syria’s crisis on the Lebanese power sector
  • Trust in technology and local engineering companies to support bigger systems has increased – leading to more investor confidence in larger investments in utility scale solar PV
  • Saudi Arabia last week invited bids for their 300MW utility scale solar project
  • Dubai awaits bids for its CSP solar project
  • Egypt has recently signed PPA and their long-awaited Feed in tariff utility scale Solar PV projects will be tendered in August
