While initial steps have been taken to diversify the energy mix in North Africa, large scale deployment of renewable energy technologies and a transformation of the energy sector are lacking behind. This chapter argues that a systemic approach is essential for scaling up renewables, as piece-meal measures are not likely to capture the full range of expected outcomes. Systematic learning should be at the core of policy-making with the objective of enhancing long-term benefits, along with an effort to coordinate across development agendas and foster alliances between stakeholders with diverse interests in the energy sector and beyond. Ultimately, a new narrative that discredits the ‘old’ energy regime and sheds light on the co-benefits from pursuing an integrated approach to green growth and energy sector transformation is needed.
