The Emirates Solar Industry Association has been renamed as the Middle East Solar Industry Association (Mesia) in anticipation of expected growth in the region.
The first solar association in the UAE has renamed itself in an attempt to reflect the anticipated growth of the solar industry across the Middle East.
The Middle East Solar Industry Association (Mesia) came into being on Monday, after changing its name from the Emirates Solar Industry Association, which was originally founded in 2009.
“We felt it was a natural evolution,” said the president of Mesia, Vahid Fotuhi. “We think that, more and more, the solar market will evolve across the Middle East, not just Dubai or Abu Dhabi.”
