Bhutan launches ground-mounted PV tender
Bhutan Power Corp. (BPC) has released a tender to construct the country's first ground-mounted solar plant. At just 180 kW, the planned project is Bhutan's initial effort to deploy renewables aside from hydroelectricity, which covers almost all of its power need. According to the current stats from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), Bhutan had actually not set up any PV or wind capacity by the end of 2019. The small solar plant will certainly be built in Rubessa, Wangduephodrang area. Prospective programmers have until Oct. 7 to send their proposals. The task will evaluate the technological usefulness of PV projects in the little, landlocked country, BPC claimed. Bhutan presently has 2.33 GW of installed creating capacity, all of which comes from hydropower. However, IRENA estimates that the mountainous country can host as much as 12 GW of solar and also 760 MW of wind capacity. IRENA is pressing the federal government to update its power policies to make the most of falling solar and also wind power costs. The nation currently has actually attained almost global accessibility to electricity, yet it commonly has to import electrical energy from bordering countries, specifically in the winter season.
