Bahrain: Sustainable Energy Authority Established

Bahrain’s King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa issued Thursday a royal decree appointing Dr. Abdulhussain bin Ali Mirza as the president of the Sustainable Energy Authority (SEA).

The authority, affiliated to the Cabinet, will encourage more investments in the sector and conduct a comprehensive assessment to raise efficiency and develop a general policy.

SEA will also make proposals to set national sustainable energy goals in association with governmental and non-governmental entities.

Bahrain plans to provide around 5 percent of the electricity needs from the solar energy projects, which is equal to around 250 MW by 2025.

Bahrain’s output totals around 3,920 MW daily from the natural gas stations.

The decree also stipulated the authority’s tasks such as proposing a work-plan and determining the goals to enhance the efficiency of sustainable energy in addition to suggesting projects and initiatives by which sustainable energy sources are developed.

Some of the goals are to monitor the performance of the sustainable energy sector and to put economic and technical indicators on the level of achieving strategic goals and initiatives of sustainable energy and efficiency.

Other goals are moving into a low-carbon economy.

The tasks also include directing the private sector and activating its role in maintaining sustainable energy in addition to inciting it to establish private or joint firms that aim to raise energy efficiency and use sustainable energy sources to generate electricity.
