Middle East and North Africa (MENA) Solar Market Outlook, 2013-2017

The MENA region possesses the greatest technical potential for renewable energy in the world with much of this potential attributed to solar energy. This potential is now starting to be more seriously considered, driven by rapidly increasing energy usage, high insolation rates, a young and empowered workforce, and an increasing awareness of the costs of burning natural resources.

The United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Turkey, and Morocco, have ambitious solar power generation goals as well as evolving policies and regulatory frameworks to support these goals. Demonstration projects are being deployed in some countries, while large scale projects are being deployed in others. However, in a region undergoing dramatic political and social change, questions remain as to the long term outlook for solar energy. In this report, the authors discuss the drivers for adoption, the major players and stakeholders, the overall market structure, and the long term outlook of each solar market in the MENA region.

  1. Solar energy is the best source to get free and non polluted energy and solar energy is not finish any more so solar is the best option to get energy.

  2. Developers are expected to install about 3.5 gigawatts of solar power in the Middle East and North Africa in 2015, up from 149 megawatts that will be installed this year, driven by government support across the region and booming growth in Saudi Arabia and Turkey, according to GTM Research.

    Demand for photovoltaic and solar-thermal systems will grow slowly and then skyrocket in 2015 when ‘the large bulk’ of projects from a Saudi programme will go into operation, Scott Burger, an analyst with the Boston-based research company, said on Saturday.

The Battle of the Blogs? Whitlock goes to War...

Good day folks, you're all in for a bit of a treat as it happens, so I hope you're sitting comfortably. Before I go any further, I should issue a 'long read' warning. This blog piece is going to be fairly long, quite involved in its detail, but hopefully very enjoyable if you despise and detest climate change denial, as I do. But first, an explanation of the circumstances.

The other day, on Twitter, I indulged in a bit of regular fun-poking at James Delingpole, as I often do because, quite simply, the man just invites it. For those not in the know, Delingpole is a pretty nasty character really. He writes regular blog pieces and op-eds for Breitbart and The Spectator, usually on climate change, but also on other subjects as well. He is usually, and seemingly, unashamedly vicious, as will become apparent in my coverage of him and his behaviour in this piece. Given his behaviour, I am not afraid, occasionally to indulge in a bit of 'ad-hominem' warfare myself, ind…

5 Companies and Their Efforts to Reduce the Environmental Impact of Manufacturing

By Rana Tarakji
The Industrial Revolution has undoubtedly affected the environment. From pollution to global warming, the environment has taken on a lot of the burden for many of the advancements that humans have enjoyed.
Unfortunately, the manufacturing industry is one of the biggest contributors to the significant damages and hazards on the environment. Manufacturing companies are among the biggest producers of solid, liquid, and gaseous wastes that lead to huge levels of pollution.
Although many manufacturing companies still do not have policies and practices in place to reduce their negative impact on the environment, there are many who are taking the lead to a more sustainable and environment-friendly approach.
Coca Cola When it comes to beverage manufacturers, Coca Cola is among the biggest around the world. They have started taking on a more responsible environmental commitment by making water preservation, sustainable packaging, and energy and climate protection among their goals.…
