This article presents information related to the high importance given to the renewable energy sector in the Middle East. Reasons for the region increasingly turning to 'green' solutions to generate more of its energy requirements are clear and similar to the reasons most regions of the world are embracing renewable energy technologies. China, for example, the country widely cited as one of the major reasons global coal, steel and oil prices surged so spectacularly as its economy boomed in 2004, is proposing to introduce new legislation to encourage the generation of renewable energy.
