The sun is brighter in the MENA region

The energy world is becoming one of the main drivers to improve regional integration, particularly in the Middle East and North of Africa (MENA).

Traditional vs renewable sources

For many years, the global supply of oil and coal -traditional sources of energy production- have been in the hands of a few countries. In the case of oil, 96 percent of the reserves are concentrated in only 20 countries, mostly located in the MENA region, specifically in Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, United Arab Emirates, and Libya. However, Morocco, Jordan, Lebanon, and Yemen -countries without oil potential- represent the highest photovoltaic power potential in the world (Figure 1). In the near future, renewables´ potential in the region, mainly solar and wind power, will likely result in the economies with the lowest oil reserves becoming the leading powers in energy.
