MEED Dubai Clean Energy Forum 2014, IRENA presentation

“Outlining a roadmap to renewable energy adoption in the MENA region: challenges and opportunities”

Middle East Economic Digest (MEED) and the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) invited IRENA’s policy head, Dr Rabia Ferroukhi, to make a presentation at the first MEED Dubai Clean Energy Forum. The forum was organised to explore solar and other clean energy market opportunities in the Emirate of Dubai and throughout the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. The presentation showcased some of IRENA’s work on the status of renewable energy in the region and highlighted the potential benefits of extensive deployment. In addition, the event provided an opportunity to engage with stakeholders in the public and private sectors for an upcoming market analysis on the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region.
