Renewable Energy Conference 2024

Theme: Empowering a Sustainable Energy Future and Transforming Utilities


The Renewable Energy Conference will focus on the rapidly growing renewable energy market in North Africa, which is expected to achieve a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of more than 6% by 2029. This growth is driven by supportive government policies and efforts aimed to meet power demand, drive industrial growth, reduce dependency on fossil fuels, and overcome the climate change challenges that are increasingly disrupting the regional economy.

The Renewable Energy Conference will address how innovation, sustainability and collaboration are essential components for investment and growth in the renewable energy sector. The event will delve into the pressing challenges faced by investors and utility leaders in developing energy projects, offering a platform to discuss and devise strategies for overcoming these obstacles. The conference will bring together industry leaders, policymakers, and sector stakeholders to explore and navigate the complexities of the renewable energy landscape in North Africa. Participants will have the opportunity to share insights, forge partnerships, and collaborate on initiatives that will shape the future of renewable energy in the region.
