Welcome Message

Dear CSP Peers,

In 2020, MENA CSP industry will continue to flourish.

During recent years, MENA CSP market is booming and treated as next promising market due to continuous projects deployment plan. Thanks to the abundant solar resources, most MENA regions contain great potential of developing CSP projects. Currently, Morocco has accomplished 510MW NOORo CSP Park, followed by first phase NOOR Midelt project awarded to the consortium of EDF and Masdar, and NOOR Midelt Phase One is expected to start construction in 2020 by TSK. This project set a new record-low bidding price at USD $0.07/kWh, establishing another benchmark for future projects. Meanwhile, second phase Midelt project is under early preparation, which also attracts global energy giants’ attention. Those behaviors indicate that Morocco is stepping on its way of energy independence target of 2000 MW installed RE by 2020.

The Maktoum Solar Park in Dubai, UAE is becoming focus of the world in recent years, among which the fourth phase 950 MW (700 MW CSP+250 MW PV) project makes it one of the largest CSP Park around the world. Global enterprises from Europe, USA, MENA and China participate in the project and make it as a symbolic reference of multinational cooperation, and part of it is expected to accomplish within 2020.


In addition, CSP projects have also been implemented in Abu Dhabi, Kuwait, Israel and many other regions. Under the leadership of these pioneers mentioned above, other countries in MENA, such as Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, Algeria and Jordan are considering integrating CSP technology into their energy system, some of which  are already well prepared.

It is foreseeable that under the impetus of the “Belt and Road Initiative”, more Chinese enterprises will also participate in the CSP business in these countries and regions along the route. This may help the industry to reduce manufacturing costs, and generate more communication between China and foreign countries in energy and economy fields to achieve mutual benefits under the goal of strengthening global cooperation.

Apart from power generation, CSP could also be utilized in many other promising fields such as industrial heating, water desalination, enhanced oil recovery in MENA region. Undoubtedly, the huge amount market share of MENA region catches the eyes of the global CSP stakeholders. To get you the professional platform for being aware of MENA CSP future deployments & flagship project updates and excavating more business opportunities & market demands, we warmly welcome you to join CSP Focus MENA 2020 on September 9-10 in Dubai, U.A.E.
