To stimulate dialogue on efficient renewable energy policy schemes, the Sahara Wind Project presented the Economic Impacts of Renewable Energies during the World Future Energy Summit.
At the invitation of the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) and in partnership with the European Investment Bank (EIB), Sahara Wind took part in a joint IRENA-EIB workshop aimed at “Evaluating renewable energy manufacturing potential in the Mediterranean Partner Countries”. Prior to that, on January 19th 2015, Sahara Wind shared its regional capacity building experiences aimed at leveraging local value-creation to maximize the impacts and benefits of renewable energies in North Africa. The discussion took place during a joint IRENA-GIZ workshop focused on “The Socio-economic Benefits of Solar and Wind Energy”. During these events, representatives of regional bodies, ministries, financial institutions, private sector and development partners interacted with keys actors involved in the Renewable Energy supply chains to foster local manufacturing at local and regional levels.
