Renpower North Africa Storage – Accelerating Investment and Deployment of RE + Energy Storage Across North Africa
Planned power investments in North Africa average around USD 15 billion per year during the period 2021-2025, of which about USD 5 billion per year would be dedicated to renewable energy. As RE penetration in the energy mix is rising, battery storage is becoming a critical enabler for the integration of large shares of variable renewable electricity, such as solar PV and wind, into power systems.
Some of the North African countries are launching storage projects. Tunisian utility STEG, for instance, is planning to build a 400-600MW pumped hydro energy storage plant, for a 2029 commissioning date. Egypt in the frame to be one of the world’s most promising renewable H2 hotspots, with the Suez Canal Economic Zone (SCZONE) attracting billions of dollars of gigawatts of green hydrogen and ammonia projects. Mauritania has 2 of the largest upcoming green hydrogen projects in the Africa in its pipeline.
The conference will also address topics such as the use of energy storage systems (ESS) in C&I and mining sites; as well as exploring green hydrogen as a long-term energy storage solution and how the continent is reacting to unlock the multiple benefits.
The 20+ speaker experts will give the audience a better understanding into battery energy storage systems (BESS) – maximizing the technology, supply chain and developing a know-how local industry. Other important questions will be raised such as; What is currently the biggest barrier to deploying energy storage in North Africa? What are the latest trends and policy updates fueling explosive growth in energy storage? What regulatory, permitting, and other administrative challenges are project developers encountering? How to build a productive policy environment for RE and energy storage to accelerate the energy transition?
Join us at RENPOWER NORTH AFRICA STORAGE 2023.
Be part of the conversation, network and learn about the latest developments and business opportunities ahead.
