Market information:

According to the International Renewable Energy Agency (Irena), the GCC currently has 30 renewable energy projects included in the plan, under construction or completed. It is expected that the GCC countries will adopt renewable energy and save 200 billion US dollars by 2030.


In 2013, the demand for PV in the Middle East and Africa will reach 1GW, while the demand for PV in 2012 will be 136MW, a year-on-year increase of 625%, withSouth Africa,IsraelandSaudi Arabiahaving the largest increase. By 2017, the PV market in the Middle East and Africa is expected to grow to 3.7 GW to 9 GW.


Saudi Arabia will be the third largest market in the region, and analysts point out that the country's renewable energy purchases will be a booster and will become the largest market in the region by 2017. In 2012,Saudi Arabia's electricity demand reached 40,000 MW, and it is expected to reach 120,000 MW by 2032. In 2032,Saudi Arabiawill realize 41,000 MW of solar energy and 17,600 MW of nuclear power to meet one-third of its electricity demand;Jordanplans to purchase 200 MW of solar energy and 200 MW of wind energy, and strive to account for the country's renewable energy by 2020. The ratio increased from 1% to 10%.


From 2013 to 2017, total capital investment in the Middle East and North  Africa region is expected to reach $147.5 billion, an increase of 123.9 GW. The Gulf Cooperation Council received $63.1 billion in investment power projects. The eastern Arab countries received $36.8 billion,Iranreceived $21.4 billion, and the western Arab countries received $14.6 billion. Other Arab countries also received nearly $2.3 billion in investment projects. In 2012, Dubai launched the Maktoum Solar Park Project, which is expected to reach 1GW in 2030, making it one of the largest solar parks in the region. The first phase of the project will be completed in the third quarter of 2013.

The power generation capacity is 13MW. According to the report, in 2020, the UAE's electricity consumption will be doubled from the current 87 megawatt-hours (TWH) to 180 megawatt-hours, an average annual growth rate of 8.5%. In view of this, the UAE government plans to move to electricity in the next eight years. The department invested $25 billion to meet the growing demand for electricity. Marc Norman, general manager of the Middle East Solar Energy Association (MESIA), believes that Dubai will be an important market for solar energy in the Middle East in 2014.


According to the UAE's "National News" reported on May 16, the Dubai Water and Electricity Authority (DEWA) said that the Shams Dubai rooftop solar project launched last year has completed the solar photovoltaic panel laying of 30 buildings, and six of them have been connected to the grid. . DEWA said it is working with 18 relevant government agencies to promote the connection of 37 solar power projects under Shams Dubai, with a total generating capacity of 279 kW. The report also said that Dubai's Siraj Power Company also said it will invest 50 megawatts of rooftop solar projects in the next five years, saying that market demand is sufficient.
