The Middle East has abundant sources of renewable energy resources, namely solar and wind that can be effectively used to build a sustainable environment. A huge part of the Middle East lies within the Global Sun Belt, the area around the world that gets the most sunlight and the least rainfall. These climatic conditions can generate and supply terawatts of solar electricity, offering a global source of renewable energy.
Opportunities exist across all economic sectors: industry, commerce, transport, residential, public, tourism, services, and agriculture. Examples from the manufacturing sector include process upgrades such as improvements in heating and cooling equipment, and examples from the housing sector include building envelope improvements such as upgrades to windows and insulation.
