Assessing Investment Risk in Renewable Energy (Morocco, Egypt, Jordan, Tunisia, Algeria, Libya, Lebanon)

 

Mediterranean countries have growing energy demand and abundant untapped renewable energy resources, experiencing a growing political commitment to renewables and attracting considerable interest from international private capital investors. Nerveless, private investment in renewable energy in the region remains limited. Why?

While a lot of research has been done on the risks that act as barriers for investments, the voice of investors is often missing. For this reason, RES4Africa in partnership with PwC conducted a survey to identify and analyse the risk perception of key public and private stakeholders in seven Med countries: Morocco, Egypt, Jordan, Tunisia, Algeria, Libya and Lebanon. The survey is a follow-up to an equivalent survey completed in 2016 with the addition of including view of public sector stakeholders, with the aim to guide regional policymakers to reduce the perceived risks and identify areas where greater effort is needed.

The results of the survey will be presented and discussed on Tuesday 4th May during a virtual event organised by RES4Africa Foundation in partnership with PwC and MEDREG. Through this webinar, RES4Africa Foundation aims to promote Public-Private Dialogue on the legal frameworks for renewable energy, de-risking investments for renewable energy and the bankability of offtake agreements in the Mediterranean countries.
