National Renewable Energy Action Plan (NREAP)
In October 2016, SEU finalized the preparation of Bahrain’s first National Renewable Energy Action Plan (NREAP). The Plan was endorsed by the Cabinet in January 2017. NREAP identifies feasible renewable energy options for Bahrain, sets the targets, and proposes policies and initiatives to achieve the targets.
NREAP represents the Kingdom’s efforts to deliver the sustainable energy transition envisioned in the Economic Vision 2030. The Plan also represents the implementation of the Kingdom’s international commitments under the Paris Agreement, the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and the League of Arab States Renewable Energy Framework.
The Plan sets a national renewable energy target of 5% by 2025 and 10% by 2035. The proposed renewable energy mix consists of solar, wind and waste to energy technologies.
NREAP was prepared by SEU through broad consultations with key government and private-sector institutions.
