The Decade Of The Acceleration Of The Energy Transition In MENA

Dii Desert Energy was launched in 2009 as an international industry initiative for improving market conditions for renewables in the deserts and for examining the synergies to be captured through connecting the power markets of Europe, North Africa and West Asia. Since 2019, alongside green electrons, we have integrated the green molecules component as we recognize the role that green hydrogen will play in 'defossilizing' the global economy. MENA will become a ‘Powerhouse’ of emission-free energy, both green ‘electrons’ and ‘molecules’, serving the world energy market. This has been established in the market as ‘Desertec 3.0’. Nonetheless, the message is clear: no green molecules without green electrons!

The Dii Desert Energy Leadership Summit, launched in 2010, has established itself as a unique, invitation-only event for the top leaders and decision makers in the MENA and international renewables sector. Over the past 12 years, the annual summit has been a forum to discuss the progress of Dii's work and some of the key topics to accelerate the energy transition in MENA and beyond.

It presents a platform for Dii partners and stakeholders to share experiences, expectations, and perspectives in the transforming energy markets in MENA and beyond. The summit forms part of Dii’s wider roadmap of accelerating the energy transition in the Arab world by connecting regions, people and continents sharing Dii's mission 'No Emissions!'

The program of the 2021 edition highlighted the holistic vision of energy transition and 'dive' into the practical aspects of the markets for renewables, green molecules, energy storage, transmission and flexible demand. It brought together global visionaries, regional and international industry leaders and political forces all in one place to discuss and debate the perspectives and practical implementations of an emission-free energy system in the MENA region and beyond.
