MENA’s renewables investment to hit $97bln in five years

Yellow Door Energy currently has over 110 megawatts of solar assets operating and under construction in the UAE, Jordan, and Pakistan, with recent expansions into Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and Oman. Yellow Door Energy is one of Apicorp’s investee companies and in 2019 the corporation and a consortium of international and regional banks invested $65 million in Yellow Door Energy to scale up investments in solar energy and efficiency solutions in emerging markets.

“For years, Apicorp has been a trusted financial partner in the region’s energy sector, and we are delighted to extend further support to Yellow Door Energy as it scales up its solar operations in into new markets,” said Dr Ahmed Ali Attiga, CEO of Apicorp.

He said the revolving construction facility demonstrates Apicorp’s commitment to accelerate sustainable energy transition in the region. “Apicorp’s financing portfolio is now over 15 per cent green and we are looking to continue to increase this as we move towards our strategic priorities for the energy transition.”

Jeremy Crane, CEO of Yellow Door Energy, said with over $50 million of solar and energy efficiency projects currently under construction, the company continues to be the leader in the region’s energy transition. “Yellow Door Energy is pleased to be working with Apicorp again to propel our mission to provide low cost, reliable and sustainable energy solutions to businesses across Mena.”
