1. How does the CEBC define Clean Energy?
A common definition of Clean Energy is any generation that has a lower environmental foot-print than conventional (fossil fuel based) electricity generation technology, although some fossil fuels (natural gas) and fossil fuel technologies (super critical coal) are considered in some jurisdiction to be sources of Clean Energy. The CEBC’s definition of Clean Energy includes all renewables technology plus carbon capture and storage and energy efficiency. We are generally supportive of the introduction of nuclear into the region but are not actively representing the nuclear industry. In relation to energy efficiency we support technologies that can help improve supply side efficiency and support demand side measures to improve the efficient use of electricity, such as smart grids and distributed generation.
In relation to energy efficiency we represent technologies used to increase the efficiency of the supply as well as the demand side of electricity usage including smart grids and distributed generation.
2. What technologies do we represent?
We will represent all technologies relevant to our members provided they fall within a broad definition of Clean Energy.
3. Which governments do we have arrangements with?
CEBC is actively building strong relationships across the MENA region. Currently our focus is around the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Qatar and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
4. Do we represent nuclear?
Currently our members are focused around clean energy technologies other than nuclear. Nuclear forms a large part of the energy agenda in the region so is integral to the dialogue on energy solutions. CEBC, however, are not actively engaged in representing the nuclear industry.
5. Is there any criteria for Companies joining?

8. What countries do we include in MENA?
The CEBC covers the following countries: Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Oman, Palestinian Territories, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Tunisia, Turkey, UAE, Yemen.
9. What clean energy technologies are suitable for MENA?
Applications of clean energy technologies are determined, to a large degree, by the availability of naturally occurring energy resources and how cost effective they are to harness. Obvious technologies relevant to the region include Solar, wind, CCS, Energy Efficiency. Technologies with more restricted application include bio-energy and geothermal.
