How do you see renewable power developing in MENA over the next 5 years? Do you see the government targets for clean energy production being achieved?

Frank Wouters, IRENA: With an ever increasing number of governments that are developing RE policies and targets, the MENA region will see many interesting developments in the years to come. With further reductions in cost, more and more projects will make plain economic sense, driving the developments. Lastly, recent investments have shown that there is sufficient capital at reasonable cost available.

Allan Baker, Societe Generale: This is a complex question as one has to look at how realistic the targets are and the fundamental drivers behind the targets. On the face of it the targets for the region, at least in the case of some countries, look challenging but even if not all the capacity materialises over the envisaged timeframe we still anticipate a very substantial investment in the region which will translate into a significant step towards a lower carbon foot print for the generation sector in a number of countries.

Tom Riley, Brightsource Energy: Success of early projects will be very important. This gives technology providers, governments and lenders confidence to stick with their programs. Programs in India got off to a bad start due to weak government support, overstated DNI and unsustainable prices. I am impressed that MENA seems to be aware of this and is designing a program that can start successfully then continue building on that success. The next 3-4 years will be critical.
