The most Powerful Solar Platform in the MENA Region

Intersolar @ Middle East Electricity – the perfect match for the RE industry

Intersolar has been actively involved in the Middle East region since 2013 with various events, such as the Intersolar Summit Middle East that took place in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, the successful exhibition and conference in Dubai in 2016 and the high-level conference in 2017. In 2019 Intersolar is teaming up with Middle East Electricity. These two leading global energy exhibitions have embarked on a partnership of on-going collaboration to co-deliver a solar event at Middle East Electricity 2019. The new event will build upon the already strong solar offering, with the aim of providing a platform which best serves the trends and investment opportunities in the renewable energy industry.
The Intersolar Middle East conference focuses on photovoltaics, PV production technologies, and solar thermal technologies. Since its foundation, Intersolar has become the most important industry platform for manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, service providers and partners of the global solar industry.
Intersolar at Middle East Electricity is the largest gathering of solar industry professionals in the Middle East & Africa, offering the most effective trade-focused forum for international manufacturers and distributors looking to meet regional buyers.

The Intersolar Middle East Conference will be held on March 5, 2019 at Middle East Electricity.


Focus on electrical energy storage

The ees Conference is dedicated to renewable energy storage solutions, from residential and commercial applications to large-scale storage systems for stabilizing the grid. Other focal points include products and solutions for smart renewable energy, energy management, e-mobility and uninterruptible power supply (UPS).

ees is represented on four continents, with ees Europe in Munich, ees North America in San Francisco, ees India in Bangalore and Mumbai, and ees South America in São Paulo. ees Europe is the continent’s largest and most popular exhibition for the battery and energy storage industry.

The ees Middle East Conference will be held on March 6 at Middle East Electricity and will cover questions such as new approaches for energy storage technologies, the integration of storage solutions in a PV and wind-powered plant, the reliability and quality of power grids, and the influence of smart grids, electro mobility and smart markets




Middle East Electricity (MEE) is providing an exclusive access to the MENA Power Industry Outlook in collaboration with Ventures Onsite, featuring the latest investment and project updates.

The MENA region requires US$152 Billion for the addition of 117GW of generating capacity and another US$108 Billion for transmission and distribution (T&D) over the next five years - find out more

MEE is dedicated to energising the power market within the region and providing the very best resources and platforms for progression and innovation in the industry.





This year is heralded as the year for a massive roll-out of solar energy in the MENA region. As in previous years, Saudi Arabia and the UAE will continue to lead the industry in the GCC. Tenders for solar PV are expected to exceed 3 GW in Saudi Arabia and 1.5 GW in the UAE, and a 1 CSP project is scheduled to reach financial close in Dubai sometime in 2018. More large-scale projects will also be popping up across the entire MENA region (e.g. Jordan, Kuwait, Morocco and Qatar), demonstrating that large-scale solar remains very much on-track.

Regarding rooftop solar production, regulatory hurdles still need to be overcome in most markets. Most notably, for rooftop solar to take substantial market share, government regulators will need to do their part and adopt policies that promote solar energy, for example through net-metering schemes. Regional financiers and bankers need to be further educated on innovative and sustainable ways of financing rooftop solar. The first steps have been taken, but more work remains to be done. As in 2017, MESIA expects to see further implementation of storage solutions such as batteries, pumped hydro, etc. across the Middle East. Storage and demand-response solutions provide additional flexibility to the transmission system and help curb peak load.
