A future common electricity market will see an ever-increasing role for solar power as countries across the Middle East are heavily investing in renewables. Ongoing low oil prices together with rising demographic concerns are increasingly motivating MENA states to invest in a more secure and diversified energy portfolio. With an estimated population of 692 million by 2050, the MENA region will require a substantial increase in generating capacity to meet future energy demands. This point has been hit home this year as Fitch has warned that most oil producers will not break even in 2017, based on a predicted average price of $52.50 per barrel. Most MENA countries need substantially higher prices (ex: Saudi Arabia needs $74) to balance their budgets. Solar investment makes economic and security sense These fiscal pressures risk instability, both in the short and long-term, not only due to general budgetary concerns, but the risk of energy-related social unrest. Erratic domestic electricity supply has been a main instigator of social unrest in Iraq, Lebanon and Egypt. To this end, a common electricity market and grid would help mitigate localized energy disturbances, aiding both economic and social stability. Consequently, declining oil reserves, climate change, and hydrocarbon price instability means the Middle East will need to look elsewhere for future energy increases. A prime candidate is solar power, as the worlds deserts receive enough energy in six hours to meet the globes annual energy needs. It appears that MENA governments have taken heed, as over the past year we have seen huge investment in renewables  It seems clear that this is a trend set to continue as nations in the Middle East strive to reduce their carbon footprints and increase generation capacity, notes Anita Mathews, director at Informa Energy Group. In the GCC alone, which accounts for 47 percent of MENA generating capacity, some $316 billion worth of investments are needed by 2020.

Consequently, alongside Chinese and Japanese investors, EDF Europes largest energy producer is looking to acquire renewable assets in the Middle East in order to diversify its primarily nuclear-based portfolio and capitalize on growing market demand. This demand is poignantly highlighted by the fact that the MENA region tendered over 2 GW of new solar capacity in 2016. In the GCC, power construction contractor awards increased 14 percent to $25.5 billion in 2017 over 2016. The highest increase was in Saudi Arabia, which saw a 50 percent increase to $12.35 billion in contractor awards versus 2016. This comes as Saudi Arabia launched its first competitive global tender for utility-scale solar power projects in January. Government renewable energy initiatives and smart city development has also boosted the regional cable market, which is expecting consolidated annual growth rates of 8.4 percent through 2023, leading to the creation of a $12 billion market. Again, the growth rate is higher (9 percent) for the Saudi cable market through 2023.
