Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Algeria Economic and Cooperation International Relations General Department Environment and Sustainable Development Department Izourar Abderahmane Zino Arab Climate Resilience initiative: Climate Change Impacts in the Arab Region “Towards Sustainable Energy: Resources, Challenges and Opportunities” Manama, Bahrain 06-07 October, 2010
The renewable energies are liable to be an important field of cooperation between our countries through investment projects, technology transfer initiatives and knowledge transfer. fighting against climate change satisfying growing energy needs enhancing energy efficiency
169.440 tetra Wh per year in solar energy of thermal origin 14 tetra Wh of photovoltaic solar energy Solar energy potential = 60 times the current electrical consumption of the European Union 35 tetra Wh of wind energy It is possible to expand, With such potential, the use of solar energy in order to increase its share by 6% in 2015 and 25% in 2050. But The renewable energies represent only 0,02% of the electrical consumption Weaknesses: infrastructures + equipment
The creation of joint-ventures with foreign operators; Engineering and technology transfer; Equipment production in Algeria; Fostering electricity exportations from Algeria to the European market in the long term; An accurate estimation of the viability of renewable energy recovery at industrial scale; The development of solar and wind energy.
