Afghanistan state power firm concurs collaboration for 4 projects
Afghanistan's state-run power manufacturer Da Afghanistan Breshna Shirkat has actually signed agreements to create four sustainable power projects with the economic sector. The 4 projects will set you back $160m, and are expected to add 110MW of tidy energy to the country's power grid over the following 18 to 27 months. The eco-friendly projects will be established by regional companies in the Kabul, Balkh as well as Herat areas, together with partners from Turkey, India as well as the United States Agency for International Development. As part of the offer, one solar photovoltaic or pv project will certainly be constructed in northern Balkh district with 40MW capacity. 2 various other projects, consist of a solar and wind ranch facility with 25MW ability each, will be constructed in Herat district, near the border with Iran. A floating solar energy terminal will also be developed at Naghlu dam in the eastern of Kabul. With only 400MW hydropower generation ability, Afghanistan currently is reportedly importing 1.2 GW of electricity from countries like Iran, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan as well as Turkmenistan to fulfill its power needs. It is estimated that the nation would certainly call for 7.5 GW of electricity to fulfill the power needs of its populace. Afghan Finance Ministry plan and also growth principal Lima Khoram was quoted by Arab News as saying: "With the implementation of these projects, we will certainly not just witness improvement in the power industry however likewise in other locations as energy is the basic demand for the enhancement of other industries.

Afghanistan issues 40 MW solar tender
Afghanistan’s Ministry of Energy & Water has issued a tender for a 40 MW solar project at the Hisar-e-Shahi Industrial Park in Nanagrahar. According to the tender documents, the project will be realized through a public-private partnership on the build-operate-transfer model. The ministry is seeking expressions of interest by October 16 and announced a pre-application meeting will be held on September 18. Analysts at Mercom India say bidders must prove they have had a net worth of $80 million over the last three years as project financing will lie solely in their hands. In May 2018, a previous 40 MW solar tender – for a project at the same industrial park – was awarded to Shuangdeng Group for almost $60 million. The Ministry of Energy and Water aims to install 500 MW of PV plant generation capacity by next year. The country’s renewable energy policy is targeting 4-5 GW of new renewables capacity by 2030.

In May 2018, a previous 40 MW solar tender – held by the IFC for a project at the same industrial park – was awarded to Chinese battery manufacturer Shuangdeng Group for almost $60 million. The Ministry of Energy & Water issued a series of tenders for hybrid solar plants last year. The last, in June, was for a 5 MW facility and those plants followed tenders for three hybrid solar projects – with a total capacity of 65 MW – in September 2017. The earlier three projects, together with the 5 MW hybrid project in Ghor, are part of a plan approved by Afghanistan’s High Economic Council in March 2017 to deploy 65 MW of hybrid projects. Afghanistan’s renewable energy policy aims for 4-5 GW of new generation capacity by 2030.
