  • Back in 2013, when the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, was launched near Dubai with 13 megawatts of capacity, like in most projects in the region, the ambitions were grand.
  • An interesting outcome of the interest in solar has been the opportunities these markets have created for alternative solar technologies, notably CSP (Concentrated Solar Power).
  • To that, one can add water conservation in the world’s most water challenged regions, when comparing solar with alternate power production methods, and finally, jobs, where these countries are all looking to see the sector create local jobs.
