Mena power generation pipeline reaches 250GW

Solar and wind account for two-thirds of the total planned capacity across the Mena states. Economic expansion, energy diversification and net-zero targets, along with planned low-carbon hydrogen projects, have pushed the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) region's power generation pipeline across all technologies to about 250GW.  

Solar accounts for roughly 45% of the total planned capacity, followed by fossil fuel-fired plants, with a share of about 24%, data from regional projects tracker MEED Projects indicate.

The planned wind capacity is roughly 59GW, which is on par with that expected from mainly gas-fired power plants. Nuclear accounts for the remaining 7.5%.

Saudi Arabia, including NEOM, offers the largest potential market, with a pipeline of over 55GW, followed by Morocco (51GW) and Egypt (35GW).
