The Middle East and Levant region returns with critical infrastructure being a priority for large economies who have massive requirements to deliver projects driven by population growth and need to diversify their economies.
Utility scale projects in the region are coming into fruition with Jordan, Saudi and Egypt heading towards second and even third rounds. Lebanon’s first round is a pivotal moment for the solar industry and provides the sector a boost of confidence in the region.
Lebanon does not lack experience in delivering commercial-scale solar installation, however in 2017 utility scale 150MW opportunities will be the game-changer. The recently updated National Renewable Energy Action Plan (NREAP 2016-2020) provides clear guidelines for delivering targets and given the high potential for development of the Solar PV plants the opportunity has been ear-marked to be as large as 1000MW.
The Utility Scale Solar Summit is the pivotal place for Middle Eastern, European and North Africa utilities to further develop new relationships to win business.
The strategic programme will be led by utility solar companies from the region, international EPCs, O&Ms from the international community. Experts showcasing their products will experience tailored sessions that focus on business development and knowledge sharing of the latest industry trends.
