The development of renewable energy sources in the Mediterranean

Support our research project, register yourself and purchase the report

Currently, despite the abundance of natural resources, the contribution of clean sources to the supply of primary energy in the Med Area is very limited; in fact, the supply in the Med Area is still dominated by fossil fuels. In the south and east of the Basin, they account for 94% of the national energy supply, while in the north the percentage is 75%. On the other hand, if we look at the production of renewable energy sources, only 1 GW of capacity has been installed in the south, while there are 19 GW of installed capacity (excluding the hydroelectric generation) in the north. In particular, the MENA Area has one of the highest potentials in the world for the generation of solar energy: the IEA (International Energy Agency) has estimated that, thanks to the concentrated solar power (CSP), it would be possible to cover 100 times the consumption of the MENA Area and Europe together. These are all factors to take into account as from today to 2020, the whole region will need an additional production capacity of 191 GW to meet the growing demand for energy, of which 106 GW should be installed in the south and east and 85 GW in the north.

This report is extracted from the SRM’s 3rd Annual Report on “Economic relations between Italy and the Mediterranean area – November 2013″.
