Awad Al-Badri, the Minister of Electricity and Renewable Energies of the eastern based Libyan (unrecognised by most of the international community), met in Benghazi with the management of the Turkish company Cora Energy last Monday. Cora specialises in designing, supplying, and installing solar power stations using photovoltaic panels.
The meeting, attended by the Directors of the Libyan Electricity Holding Company and the Project Management Department at the ministry, as well as members of the High Committee for the Localization Project (3,000 megawatts), featured a visual presentation by Prof. Salah Al-Mashayti, the committee’s chairman.
He introduced ‘‘the ambitious national programme for localizing solar power stations across Libya, explaining the vision and goals of the project. He emphasised its significant strategic importance in enhancing the energy sector’s performance, reducing carbon emissions polluting the air, and addressing global warming’’.
The meeting aligns with the eastern ministry’s plan to transition to the use of renewable energies.
The eastern government reported that Cora Energy provided a concise visual presentation about its general activities and past projects executed worldwide. The meeting concluded with the possibility of signing a memorandum of understanding between both parties soon.
