Building a Sustainable Future

With power demand in the MENAT region set to grow by 7% annually until 2020, the development of additional renewable energy sources is a social and strategic imperative.

More than half of the region’s population live under conditions of ‘water stress’, where demand outstrips supply. Producing enough water to support the Middle East’s growing population needs huge investment in water production facilities and infrastructure, as well as the energy these processes demand.

The renewable energy targets established by the Gulf Cooperation Council countries and those of the wider MENAT region, together with the increasing demand for water, are opening up significant opportunities for investment in power production, conservation and water infrastructure.

With a focus on environmental and social responsibility, as well as regional government initiatives, we’re prioritizing energy efficiency and reduced consumption of finite resources.

We’re positioned to meet these needs and bring sustainable power to the region by partnering with energy experts and tapping the financial acumen and operational strength of the wider Abdul Latif Jameel network.

Together with our energy partners, we’ll lead the region in creating sustainable energy through power infrastructure development, sustainable power generation, alternative resources, and energy efficiency.

Harnessing Natural Resources

Since establishing our Energy and Environmental Services Division in 2012, our initial focus has been on photovoltaic solar energy.

Following our acquisition of FRV in 2015, our vision for a sustainable future has expanded to a wider range of renewable including:

  • solar power
  • wind power
  • water solutions and environmental services

In line with our ongoing commitment to economic development, we place a key focus on building a meaningful legacy in countries where we establish projects. We aim to create jobs at all levels, including the training of the local workforce to develop renewable energy expertise within that country.

International Energy Agency

Enabling Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency is a core focus in the MENAT region with many countries launching their own government-backed initiatives and targets to reduce power consumption.

We plan to support these energy conservation targets with internationally experienced partners to provide services including energy audits, retrofitting, and remote monitoring to reduce the energy and water consumption of both public and private buildings.

On the Horizon

We’re ideally positioned and committed to help countries of the MENAT region in meeting their established energy and environmental ambitions.

With experience and capabilities across renewable energy and now water solutions, we’ll support energy base load needs by developing partnerships with major power generators. Once launched, we plan to provide operation and maintenance services in the plants we develop, creating local jobs and a sustainable legacy of sector expertise in the process.

We’re interested in exploring the full breadth of the energy and environmental services sector. For example, we are pursuing opportunities for advancement and/or innovation in thin-film, self-cleaning, hydrophobic nano coatings for solar panels and other technologies that can improve power plant performance in hot desert environments that are so prevalent in the MENAT region.

"We continue to invest in research and cutting-edge technology to fully realize opportunities available today, identify and develop those with potential for tomorrow, and build a sustainable future."
