Bahrain has invited tender bids for a 100MW solar power plant to be established in the kingdom, reported state news agency Wam, citing the utility minister.
"We have already received tenders for the large-scale project, and Abu Dhabi Future Energy has emerged one of the potential bidders," revealed Dr Abdulhussain Mirza, Electricity and Water Affairs Minister in Bahrain.
This comes in line with Bahrain's new energy plan which has set a target of five per cent renewables in the energy mix by 2025, he stated on the sidelines of the now-running Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week.
The minister underlined the importance of diversifying sources of energy, a tendency, he said, has become a must to ensure sustainable development and provide safe energy sources for generations to come.
"Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week plays a key role in accelerating reliance on the deployment of renewable energy solutions around the world," said Mirza.
The minister participated in the opening of the ninth session of the Assembly of Irena here yesterday and spoke of the central importance attached by the Bahrain to the deployment of suitable renewable energy solutions, primarily, solar and wind energy.
