Solar O&M and Asset Management MENA
17-18 October 2016
Amman, Jordan

A renewable energy action plan has been set up in the MENA region
The global market for solar Operations and Maintenance (O&M) was valued at around 88 GW in 2014 and is expected to almost triple by 2018. With 1% increase in the performance of a system to translate into as much as a 10% increase in profit, the recent surge in PV performance monitoring and service activities will continue this year.
As MENA’s solar markets are more mature, developers and EPC contractors are currently evaluating O&M strategies to maximise system performance and long-term asset profitability of their plants.
Solar O&M and Asset Management MENA will be held on 17-18 October 2016 in Amman, Jordan. This conference is organized by ACM and will focus on O&M and asset management strategies to maximise system performance and long-term profitability of utility and commercial scale solar plants across the MENA region.
The change has started in the MENA region
In January 2016, the Jordanian Ministry of Energy raised its solar capacity target to 1000MW by 2020. The kingdom originally stated 600MW by 2020 but this figure has been raised due to rising demand.
300 MW are currently under construction in Jordan. 250 MW will enter operational phase in August 2016.
2,000MW will be generated by “Noor” solar plant in Morocco by 2020, whilst Kuwait and UAE are planning to generate 15% of their power generation from renewables by 2030.

Floating LNG 2017
13-14 February 2017
London, United Kingdom
Despite challenging market conditions, global capital expenditure (Capex) on FLNG facilities is forecast to increase significantly over the 2016-2022 period. The protracted oil price downturn has impacted the sanctioning of capital intensive liquefaction units over the last 24 months. However, the need to move towards cleaner sources of energy and diversify gas supply has stimulated the floating regasification market – over 14 countries are expected to commission their first floating import unit over the forecast period. Against this backdrop, SMi’s 5th annual Floating LNG conference will provide attendees with strategic insight on the latest developments within the FLNG market to optimise activities and ensure project sustainability and success. The two-day programme will also equip you with the tools to overcome the logistical, financial, technological and economic challenges associated with FLNG deployment and ensure succinct transition from design to operation.
