Various international ministers and company representatives made speeches or interventions as part of panels yesterday on the opening day of the Libya Energy and Economic Summit 2024 (Tripoli, 13 to 14 January).
Maltese Environment, Energy and Enterprise Minister, Miriam Dalli, said Libya is a strong partner in the energy field. She said Libya has the opportunity to play a leadership role in the sector and a lot can be achieved together if as countries bordering the Mediterranean we work together.
Turkish Minister of Energy and Natural Resources, Alparslan Bayraktar said we must act urgently and quickly towards adopting alternative energy. “The transition to alternative energy must be done in a deliberate and fair manner based on policies and research, and not randomly or emotionally.”
The world is still in need of oil and the demand for it is increasing every day, especially with the rise in the Earth’s population and the growth of new economies.
Senior Vice President Middle East and North Africa for Total Energies, Julien Pouget said the main problem facing us as investors in Libya is the ambiguous security situation, which is sometimes “very difficult.”
He said the Al-Sadada project to develop renewable energy production by relying on solar energy, which is supposed to produce 500 megawatts of solar energy, will contribute to the development of energy production in Libya and to the development of the economy as a whole.
