Middle East and Africa Renewable Energy Policy Handbook 2018

Middle East and Africa Renewable Energy Policy Handbook 2018


Renewable energy has a mixed market outlook in the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region, quite like the economies in the region themselves. While some countries are reluctant to develop renewable energy due to abundance in conventional resources, while some just cannot afford to support the development of renewable energy; some countries are proactively doing the same in order to reduce GHG emissions and appease international corridors. Yet, no country in the region is in the list of top renewable energy markets.

All 17 MEA countries covered in the report with the exception of UAE have set renewable targets of different forms. While some countries have capacity targets, some have targeted to reach / achieve a fixed share of generation from renewable sources. Six of the countries have functioning FIT schemes for various renewable technologies, and Ghana and UAE are the only countries to have proposed a net-metering scheme. South Africa has the most number of support measures for renewable energy including FITs.

The report Middle East and Africa Renewable Energy Policy Handbook 2018, offers comprehensive information on major policies governing renewable energy market in different countries of the region. It provides the current and future renewable energy targets and plans along with the present policy framework, giving a fair idea of overall growth potential of the renewable energy industry. The report also provides major technology specific policies and incentives provided in the different countries in Middle East and Africa.
