Summary

Though traditionally characterized by fossil fuels, the MENAT region today boasts a nascent solar energy industry. While the regulatory landscapes in these countries present different obstacles and opportunities to those in Europe and elsewhere in the West, there is considerable scope for development and demand is expected to soar. With auctions and tender processes being launched for major solar projects across MENAT countries, the speakers in this session will discuss the lessons learned to date and how the industry can tap into a region brimming with potential for solar energy generation. This session is jointly organized by Intersolar and Apricum.
