The Sahara Wind project presented at Wind Power North Africa in Casablanca, Morocco on 27-28 November 2012

Wind Power North Africa provided a key opportunity for the wind industry to meet. With a focus on Morocco, Egypt and Tunisia Wind Power North Africa explored policy frameworks and the next steps for scaling up the region’s wind power market. North Africa boasts exceptional wind conditions – particularly along Morocco’s Atlantic coast and along the Red Sea. Morocco drives plans to have 2GW of wind capacity by 2016, Egypt targets 7.2GW of wind energy by 2020 and Tunisia recently doubled its installed wind capacity with a target of 505MW by 2016.

The event combined a high-quality conference with first-class exhibition and networking opportunities. It assembled key stakeholders from governments and regional industries to investors, international developers and the world’s leading wind power companies.
