The arrival of COP27 and COP28 to the Middle East makes the MENA region the focus of international efforts to implement energy transition as part of the shift to a net zero carbon global economy. The example of the Middle East sets a guiding light for others, because if the world’s most important region for traditional energy production can get the transition right, it means everyone can. But what are the current developments in the field of renewable energies? What about grid integration? And what role can energy partnerships play between Europe and the MENA region? We find out in this episode.
