DescriptionThe objective of this project is to remove barriers to the expanded and sustainable utilization of renewable energy in Sri Lanka. The project will facilitate and accelerate the use of renewable energy technologies and energy efficiency measures in Sri Lanka thus reducing the need for additional fossil fuel thermal power stations and greenhouse gas (GHG) production (ie. carbon dioxide) associated with fossil fuel power stations and the decentralized use of kerosene and woodfuel.
Implementation StatusRenewable Energy Project (SRL/96/G32) was operationally closed last year and the 2003 PIR was presented as the Terminal. We are in the process of closing down (waiting for UNIDO to report back)
