Renewable energy is currently the gate to the future. Europe and the United States are taking big steps towards the continuous use of alternative resources for sustainability and unending development.

Growth in clean energies is unstoppable, as reflected in statistics produced in 2015 by the International Energy Agency (IEA): they represented nearly half of all new electricity generation capacity installed in 2014, when they constituted the second biggest source of electricity worldwide, behind coal.

Libya as a country in the MENA region is full of capacity and potential. The country’s geography influences its development socially and culturally. Although it depends solely on oil and gas production, it can totally shift to eco-friendly industries.

Starting a renewable energy revolution in the Libya can benefit the economy and society in many ways.
