After years of hesitation and slow progress, the MENA PV markets are now finally showing sustained traction. Apricum's Dr. Moritz Borgmann will give an update on the status of the MENA PV markets and recent developments. The UAE managed to cut the Gordian knot with their landmark 200 and 800 MW projects tendered in 2014 and 2016, obtaining record-low tariffs, which served as a wake-up call for other countries in the region.

This led to profound activity in the UAE, in Jordan, Morocco and Egypt. More recently, Saudi Arabia has made some serious steps ahead as well, with a few hundred megawatts to be tendered imminently, and a potentially gigawatt-scale market coming into view.

Neighboring GCC countries Kuwait, Oman and Qatar are now also talking about large-scale tenders. The webinar will highlight the opportunities for players in the PV value chain, but also point out possible risks and challenges.

Speakers: Dr. Moritz Borgmann, Partner, Apricum - The Cleantech Advisory 

Moderator: Michael Schmela, Executive Advisor, SolarPower Europe
