Yellow Door Energy discussed both the Middle East and African markets at Intersolar Middle East 2017, a key event in the region. The conference, held from September 26-27, is a premier networking platform that focuses on established, emerging and the ‘untapped’ markets in the MENA region, PV Power Plants, Best Practices, Financing and Business Models.
Jeremy Crane, CEO of Yellow Door Energy presented ‘Established Solar markets in the Middle East’, discussing Yellow Door Energy’s investment in solar net metering projects in UAE and Jordan including both rooftop & wheeling projects. His session provided updates on the company’s engagement with businesses and institutions looking to reduce their electricity costs and lock-in low prices with clean energy in the region.
Lee Bremer, the company’s COO, was on the ‘Bridge to Africa’ panel, discussing the considerations the distributed energy investor and owner-operator must take into consideration to build a business on the continent, where Yellow Door Energy is currently opening offices in Kenya and Ghana. Currency risk, project execution and adapting learning’s from the more developed UAE market were the key topics of the panel.
The mood was optimistic at the event for both utility scale and distributed solar companies. Thank you to the organizers for inviting us to speak at the conference and we look forward to continuing the discussion.
