The Sahara Wind project presented under the conference's theme: Fuelling the Renewable Energy Revolution for a Sustainable Energy Future
Hosted under the auspices of the Ministry of Energy, Mines, Water & Environment of Morocco, the 3rd Annual Maghreb/Middle East Renewable Energy Conference 2011 was held on 4-5 July 2011 in Rabat, Morocco. Building on the success of the previous events held in Cairo in 2009 and Marrakech in 2010, this event provided industry and market stakeholders a platform for continued dialogue.
This event brought together regional governments, project financiers, technology providers, investors and other relevant industry stakeholders. The event provided an opportunity to clarify policy issues, financing regulations and PPP frameworks in place to support projects on wind & solar energy.
Renewable potentials and prospects in the Maghreb/Middle East regions are exceptional taking into consideration the average wind speed and solar potentials which rank among the highest in the world. This represents a factor which will ensure that renewable energy will experience considerable growth in order to establish itself as a viable source for power generation in the broader MENA region.
