Webinar description:

Afghanistan is undergoing a process of re-industrializing its economy and rebuilding its energy infrastructure. This¬ is accompanied by an increasing energy demand that cannot be met by conventional energy sources alone. ¬Thus, alternative energy sources have to be explored. Solar photovoltaic has already reached or is about to reach grid parity in most of the sun-belt countries. Solar PV also has a great economic potential in Afghanistan and first efforts to deploy it can be seen. Till 2021, 500 MW of renewable energy will be deployed and 1.5 GW of PV are foreseen by 2032. Nevertheless, according to the Afghanistan Renewable Energy Union (AREU), solar projects could cover 30% of the electricity demand by 2032 with 3,000 MW.

The authors of the study “Enabling PV Afghanistan”, which will be launched at the 26th September at the Intersolar Middle East, will give an overview of the opportunities offered by this new market.
