Speakers from leading institutions such as MASEN, NREL, IEA, ACWA, and international financial institutions, will share best practice and lessons learned on crucial topics such as:
- Concessional financing
- Managing national CSP programs
- CSP technologies
- The power system value of CSP compared to other technologies

- Potential exports of CSP electricity to Europe.
Through engaging presentations and interactive round-table discussions attendees will have the opportunity to deepen their knowledge of CSP, ask questions to experts in the field, and share their own experiences and expertise.
The workshop includes a guided visit to the Ouarzazate Solar Complex (Noor I, II and III), where attendees will be able to see the largest CSP complex in the world.
This workshop will launch the MENA CSP Knowledge and Innovation Program funded by the Clean Technology Fund through the World Bank. Further workshops will be held from 2017 to 2019 under this program.
