In the Middle East, as recent research by Frost and Sullivan suggests, demand for power, water & energy could triple over the next 25 years. Some of the highest per capita energy intensive countries, globally, are based in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. This drives growth in demand for power in the region, which is expected to increase by over 7.0 percent annually until 2018. OECD statistics suggest MENA aggregate energy demand is expected to continue to expand well above the world average, at around 3 percent per year between 2010 and 2030, with electricity demand growing at a rate of 6 percent a year over the same period. Along with this, further pricing reforms, lower subsidies and more involvement from the private sector are also anticipated. The Middle East Lighting Association, the lighting industry representative in the region was represented at the ‘lighting day’ of Middle East Electricity and presented an update on its ongoing regulatory work in promoting energy efficiency and light quality.
