MEED Insights: MENA Power Sector Outlook 2018 - Understanding the region’s new energy sector

Summary

With $772bn worth of power generation and transmission projects planned or underway across the Mena region, the power sector is one of the region’s most active areas of capital investment.

Of this, about $409bn of power projects have been announced but not yet awarded, presenting abundant opportunities for companies with the right products and services.

MEED’s Middle East & North Africa Power Sector Outlook 2018 provides a detailed assessment of the market, examining investment plans, emerging project opportunities and reviewing key players.

In addition to high levels of capital investment, several profound changes are taking place that are reshaping the sector. Renewable energy is now at the top of the regional power agenda. More than $89bn worth of renewables projects are in pipeline, accounting for about 22 per cent of the total planned projects.

Governments are also seeking to increase the role of the private sector and increase the number of public-private partnerships for delivering major generation projects.
