LEBANON: HYDROPOWER IS THE PREDOMINANT SOURCE OF RENEWABLE ENERGY

The 2019 World Energy Issues Monitor of the World Energy Council (WEC) considered that Lebanon’s energy sector is improving due to the diversification of its energy mix amid rising investment in the renewable energy technologies. It indicated that hydropower is the predominant source of renewable energy with the highest installed capacity in Lebanon. The Government is working actively to increase the share of solar and wind energy through public-private partnerships and through the adoption of technologies, such as the Concentrated Solar Power and bioenergy technologies. It noted that authorities have already launched several solar PV and wind farm projects under power purchase agreements (PPA). It added that authorities recently committed to improving electricity storage from renewable energy to ensure a stable and secure electricity to the national grid. The WEC noted that the installed capacity of renewable energy would rise to around one gigawatt, once the solar photovoltaic (PV) and wind farms are operational. Also, the WEC anticipated that efforts by Lebanon’s private and public sectors would promote investment in renewable energy technologies in the country, allowing authorities to meet the national renewable energy target of 12% of the country’s energy mix by 2020 and 15% of the energy mix by 2030.
