The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) is an intergovernmental organization focusing on renewable energies
The overarching goal of IRENA is a rapid transition towards the widespread and sustainable use of renewable energy worldwide
The IRENA HQ will be located in Masdar City in the Masdar HQ building
As a renewable energy power project developer, Masdar Power adds renewable energy to the electricity generation mix on a world wide scale
The unit makes direct investments in individual utility scale projects in all areas of renewable energy and sustainability, with a focus on concentrated solar power (CSP), Photovoltaic solar energy and on and offshore wind energy
Masdar Power is developing a 100MW CSP plant in the Western Region of Abu Dhabi Emirate, called SHAMS 1
International projects include the 1GW London Array offshore wind farm and a wind farm in the Seychelles that will provide 25 percent of the island’s energy needs.
The unit also is developing a 500 MW hydrogen-fired power plant in Abu Dhabi that uses advanced technologies to make hydrogen power commercially viable today by feeding the CO 2 into the CCS network to be developed by Masdar Carbon.
Solar investments – UAE
The Abu Dhabi is committed to a 7% target of renewable power capacity by 2020, which is 1,500 MW, mostly from solar
Masdar is investing in utility scale Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) and PV projects

MENA & GCC economic outlook
MENA is growing ahead of the global economy
Emerging markets have contributed 2/3 of global growth since 2002.
EM Major beneficiaries of ‘Great Moderation’ – the large decline in the volatility of inflation and real GDP – starting in the early 1980s.
Increased evidence of ‘de-coupling’ from US/EU business cycles
MENA countries have achieved above trend average real GDP growth (5.9%e over 2004-2008).
MENA & GCC economic outlook
GCC have achieved average real GDP growth of 7.9%e over 2004-2008 vs. 4.6% in 1998-2003, with increased diversification of economic activity, while in nominal terms growth has averaged over 25% p.a.
Growth is investment led with strong private sector participation and record FDI levels.
Investment & infrastructure leading to an increase in productivity growth, economic diversification and absorptive capacity.
Total GCC medium-term project investments stood at $2,193bn. Of this 41.8% ($918bn) is within the UAE.
UAE double taxation agreements The UAE has signed double taxation treaties with over 45 countries Algeria Canada India Malaysia Philippines Thailand Armenia China Indonesia Malta Poland Tunis Austria Czech Republic Italy Mauritius Romania Turkey Azerbaijan Egypt Japan Mongolia Seychelles Turkmenistan Belgium Finland Jordan Morocco Singapore United Kingdom Belorussia France Korea Mozambique Spain Ukraine Bosnia Germany Lebanon New Zealand Sudan Yemen Bulgaria Holland Luxembourg Pakistan Syria
Financial crisis – impact on MENA & The Gulf
MENA, especially the Gulf region, has not been severely hit by toxic assets and financial turmoil thanks to:
Profitable domestic markets
Small stock of outstanding securitised/structured products
Limited expertise in managing structured investment products
Regulatory/prudential requirements limited exposure to sub-investment grade investments & instruments
Growing importance of and compliance with Shari’a
Ample liquidity from the increasing net capital flows (due to high returns) and from oil exports
Fiscal discipline and sizeable stock of foreign assets
However the drop in oil price will cloud the outlook and put strains on public finances
Contagion came from the equities slump as a result of deleveraging, the ensuing global credit crunch, and – needless to say – a drop in commodity prices
