Ahead of the annual back-to-back meetings of 11th Clean Energy Ministerial and 5th Mission Innovation Ministerial (MI-5) hosted by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, a series of virtual, open to public side-events took place on key energy topics.
Led by efforts in the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, the GCC has become crucial to global efforts in support of the energy transformation.
To support the development of renewable energy and further increase of investment levels in the Arab region, IRENA, LAS, RCREEE, UNDP and LCEC hosted a two-day event to examine the current financing landscape, identify key barriers and explore how innovative finance and risk mitigation solutions can serve to attract more private investment into the region.
Biomass has an auspicious future in the world’s supply of renewable energy.

The Pan-Arab Renewable Energy Strategy adopted in 2013 represents a consensus across the League of Arab States on pursuing a sustainable energy future. The strategy calls for large-scale development of the Arab region’s enormous renewable energy potential, including resources for renewable electricity generation, by the year 2030.
REmap 2030 provides a plan to double the share of renewable energy in the world’s energy mix between 2010 and 2030. It determines the realistic potential for the world to scale up renewables in order to ensure a sustainable energy future.
REmap 2030 is a roadmap to double the share of renewable energy by 2030. It is the first global study to provide renewable energy options based on a bottom-up analysis of official national sources. The roadmap encompasses 26 countries representing three-quarters of current energy demand. In determining the potential to scale up renewables, the study not only focuses on...
Djibouti faces critical challenges with power generation and distribution. Heavy reliance on fossil-fuel imports keeps the country exposed to price volatility, constraining economic development plans. But significant geothermal, wind and solar energy resources could be developed to extend reliable electricity supply throughout the country, meeting the twin concerns of energy...
