Dii Desert Energy is an independent, international public-private sector network operating from Dubai. Our group is paving the way for the energy transition in the MENA region and beyond.

Dii Desert Energy aims at transforming the energy systems in desert areas of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) in a holistic way, benefitting from the knowledge, expertise, and business connections from its professional staff and partners, including the top-level Advisory Board. Dii’s team consists of well respected senior figures in the international energy system, with experience in (green) energy industry management, projects, investments, regulations and public policy.

Dii GmbH was launched in 2009 as an industry initiative in Germany (formerly ‘Desertec Industrial Initiative’) for accelerating the energy transition in the MENA region. Once the domestic needs have been sufficiently satisfied with emission free energy, MENA will become a ‘Powerhouse’ of emission-free energy, both green electrons and molecules, serving the world energy market. This has been established in the market as ‘Desertec 3.0’.

In early 2020, Dii launched the MENA Hydrogen Alliance, which brings together private and public sector actors as well as science and academia to kick-start green hydrogen economies. The Alliance provides a platform for members to meet and discuss pathways forward and formulates common studies. The alliance acts as an impartial advisor to promote pilot projects in the region, elaborates (potential) business cases and structure for large projects, proposes the necessary policy and regulatory frameworks, and educates different stakeholders on all relevant aspects of the hydrogen value chain, from ‘source to sink’, including export of virtual and physical green energy.

Dii Desert Energy is connecting the regional and international industry with authorities and institutions and focuses in particular on practical conditions along the emission free energy value chains. It believes that will lead to realistic, tangible and profitable projects for Dii’s partners. This will benefit in fact all local and international stakeholders. Dii's platform of more than 50 companies and organizations from 25 countries is, mobilizing top executives, government decision makers, R&D institutions and academia supporting Dii's mission: No Emissions.
