Bahrain Seeks Its First Renewable Power Plants in Tender by June

Bahrain plans to seek 5 megawatts of renewable energy projects by June, the nation’s energy minister said at a conference in Abu Dhabi today.

Abdul Hussain Ali Mirza said the oil ministry will tender for 3 megawatts of wind power projects and 2 megawatts of solar. Over time, the government wants to develop more solar power, and these facilities would be the first step toward creating a renewable energy supply for the Persian Gulf nation.

Speaking in an interview at a conference in Abu Dhabi, Mirza said the nation wants to encourage renewable energy as an alternative to fossil fuels.

Bahrain gets about 83 percent of its energy from natural gas and the rest from oil, according to rankings by the International Renewable Energy Agency published in November. It said the country had no renewable power projects. The government is working on a 25-megawatt waste-to-energy power plant, according to Irena.
