The Arab countries are facing many challenges in adopting RE & Energy Efficiency (EE) in their energy policies. Low awareness from consumer side
is also impeding such civil society driver to move faster to greener sources. Therefore, despite the energy map target of 10%-20% of the total energy
demand from RE by 2020, the potentials and benefits of RE are still not well recognized. The Arab Renewable Energy Commission (AREC) intends
to work towards facilitating and promoting the culture of RE and EE to support the development and use of RE in all ways of life
