RE Development

Even though, Libya has an important potential of solar


and wind energy but the role of these resources in the
energy mix is negligible

In the past, several steps have been taken to develop the


renewable energy sector in Libya as showing next

Renewable Energy Authority Of Libya

REAOL was founded to promote the development of


RE in Libya. A goal has been set by REAOL to reach
10% of the energy supply from renewable energy
resources by the year of 2020. To achieve the target
mentioned, several plans were decided as following:
