Iraq - A new renewable energy market in the Middle East
Development of Sustainable Electricity Resources; Iraq on the Path to Power the Green Economy
  • Blessed with an abundance of solar and wind resources, Iraq is now seeking to diversify its energy dependency away from fossil fuels within the next decade, and enhance the energy mix. The country is expected to supply over 10% of its energy needs by 2028 from sustainable resources, by opting to build large-scale Solar, Wind and Biomass facilities.

    Iraq holds large reserves of natural gas that can be used for the development of combined-cycle gas turbine plants. Besides, an average irradiation of 5.6 kWh/m2/day with over 3000 hours of bright sunshine per year offers significant opportunities for development of solar energies across the country.

    With great efforts, Iraq is on the path to end the practice of flaring gas from its southern oil-producing fields and is also expected to install more gas processing facilities to not only cut gas imports but also provide more feedstock to power generation plants from 2021 onwards. The country’s renewable and energy efficiency development programmes have now received strong support from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Regional Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (RCREEE), besides the World Bank.
