The ministry of Energy estimates that local annual growth in demand for power will more than double by the year 2030 from the current 7 per cent to 15 per cent.
This has informed attempts to review plans on electricity generation which are expected to culminate into long-term investments in renewable sources of power such as wind, and nuclear as well as the hard to deplete resources such as coal.
Last week, the ministry of Energy advertised tenders for consultation services on the upgrade of the power masterplan that was adopted last year which indicates the country’s power needs and expected generation projects so as to give more emphasis on renewable sources of energy.
