International competitiveness assessment of MENA countries to develop the solar components industry
Benefits of Project
The WB and the Governments of the MENA countries want to make sure that Solar investments in their countries will bolster their industry and its capability to supply a significant percentage of needed supplies. STA helps by developing an assessment, identifying strategic challenges and providing detailed recommendations on how to develop a local solar industry.
The assessment focuses on how to incentivize local industrial capacity building and attract foreign investments in components of solar technologies’ value chains, i.e. concentrated solar power (CSP), and photovoltaic (PV).
After carrying out a global analysis in Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Morocco and Tunisia. A more detailed analysis has been carried out in Egypt to identify local manufacturing potential specifically for Kom Ombo project.
