Installed solar power capacity in the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) region is expected to double this year, with wind and hydropower also growing, according to multilateral development financier Apicorp . As a whole, the Mena region expects to add an estimated 3GW of solar power in 2021 and almost 20GW by 2025, Apicorp says in its annual outlook report.
