The law and policy for electricity generated by renewable energy: Greening the power in three Middle Eastern jurisdictions

Marei, Ibrahim Fatehi Ibrahim (2016) The law and policy for electricity generated by renewable energy: Greening the power in three Middle Eastern jurisdictions. Masters by Research thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This thesis examines the law and policy concerning renewable energy electricity generation in Palestine, Jordan, and Abu Dhabi. The thesis gives greater attention to the promotion of solar power owing to the abundance and viability. It appears that energy security profoundly underpins the utilisation of renewable electricity, and the motivation of climate change mitigation also pays a role in the promotion of renewable energy in these jurisdictions. However, current policies and regulations are not fully able to promote the renewables in the power sector. The thesis submits that reforms of law and policy are necessary to enhance the achievement of environmental and energy goals.
