The Middle East is in the early stages of Smart Grids development, but accelerated growth, fuelled by large domestic demand means the door of opportunity for investors and technology manufacturers is open. Governments of several MENA countries are experimenting with a number of policies to help curb domestic consumption of fossil fuels, including feed-in tariffs for renewables and electricity pricing mechanisms that more closely reflect the costs of electric service. Several high profile transmission interconnection initiatives are also helping these countries to use their systems more efficiently.
