DNV GL has conducted a survey among a selected number of actors of the solar market in the Middle East. The purpose of the survey was to assess the direction of the solar market in UAE, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Oman, Kuwait and Qatar. The survey was conducted by means of a questionnaire sent by email to the actors that previously accepted to participate. The first part of the questionnaire dealt with the assessment of the potential, the strategy, the stability and the opportunities for the development of a solar market in the selected countries. The second part was concerned with the phases of the solar project life cycle and the services that DNV GL could offer to support the development on the market. Presented here are the results issued from the survey that reflect the opinions of the surveyors.
