Presented from the perspective of leading renewable energy financiers from London and the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), this report describes the opportunities and challenges of renewable energy finance in the MENA region. The MENA region is attractive to investors today for several reasons; however, policy and regulation are central to investment conditions. Most MENA governments do not have a national renewable energy regime in place, making investment decisions in the region challenging. In the short term, the surveyed investors see public financing playing a key role in the industry.
