Catalysing the use of solar photovoltaic energy
Iraq is highly dependent on fossil fuels to generate power which, despite recent improvements, does not meet peak demand. Private diesel power generation has grown significantly to meet the gap.
Fuel used for domestic power generation denies Iraq the opportunity to export that fuel. The project catalyses the adoption of solar power in Iraq, both on and off-grid, to: a) reduce Iraq’s dependence on fossil fuel; b) result in direct GHG reductions of approximately 741,622 tonnes CO2; and c) help provide reliable power to the Iraqi people to support development and a better standard of living.
The project also aims to support the Iraqi Ministry of Electricity in the establishment of large, utility-scale PV plants, primarily by providing technical and investment support.
