North Africa's leading experts debate the future of renewable energy development in the Maghreb

Experts to join webinar speaking panel ahead of the Maghreb Renewable Energy Congress

With the increased renewable energy activity taking place in the Maghreb Region in 2012, including the Ouarzazate tender and the 850MW Wind Power tender, the award winning organisers of the Maghreb Renewable Energy Congress will be holding a thought provoking webinar on the development of renewable energy in North Africa.


The webinar, which takes place on Tuesday 23 April 2013 at 3pm-4pm (Rabat time) and is COMPLETELY FREE, will bring together leading renewable energy experts to discuss current projects, their financial requirements and economic impacts.

Key topics to be discussed include:
• Unlocking climate finance: evaluating the
current financial situation to determine how much
more is required to reach current renewable energy
generation targets
• How can solar energy act as a creator of
sustainable jobs in the Maghreb?
• Reviewing the progress of the 300 MW Tarfaya wind
farm and exploring the possibility of Morocco
generating 2,000 MW from wind power by 2020

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
