With vast stretches of desert, windy coastlines and some of the highest solar radiation levels in the world, the Middle East & North Africa (MENA) is a natural home for renewable energy. In the last decade, the MENA region has started to harness the abundant natural energy resources that it has in plentiful supply – namely, solar power – but also, more recently, it has looked to take advantage of the power of the wind. To augment this movement to “New Energy”, MENA New Energy (formerly known as MENASol) was created to facilitate the discussions between Governments looking to add renewable energy to their country’s grid and Developers who would build out each project.
MENA New Energy 2018 will be held from the 24th to 25th of April 2018 at the Hyatt Regency, Dubai.
