Renewable Energy

The drive towards renewable energy is no longer being solely championed by environmental scientists concerned about the effects of global warming.  With a growing body of case studies proving the ability to be cost competitive with conventional power generation technologies the renewable energy industries is enjoying unprecedented growth.

IRENA  now estimates that the renewable energy industry employs 8.1 million people around the world (excluding large hydropower), which includes a 5% increase from 2015.  These figures are in stark contrast with depressed labour markets in the broader energy sector and offer governments across the MENA region the opportunity to balance energy generation with local job creation.
