Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on August 24, 2011

A study published in 2007 by the Global Energy Network Institute (GENI) presents the potential and advantages of using renewable energies by the MENA countries. It also pinpoints the drawbacks connected to the nuclear energy option.

It describes the benefits stemming from the use of solar energy, underlining the potential to offer solutions at both national and local level: job creation, better solutions for heating and cooling systems, water desalinization, little land use, etc. The topic of grid interconnectivity (both AC and HVDC) also falls under the scope of this research.
