Botswana Will Build 200MW Solar Thermal Projects, Procurement Will Start Soon

Release date:2021-01-14 Source:Raytech Pageviews:-

According to foreign media sources, Botswana announced the 20-year (2020-2040) Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) of the country on December 15, 2020, showing that the country plans to build a 200MW solar thermal power generation project by 2026. It is reported that the procurement work for this project will begin this year.

Botswana is a landlocked country on south of the Sahara, bordering South Africa, Namibia, and Zimbabwe. According to the plan, the government of this country has approved an additional 1.5GW of electricity installed capacity by 2040. The first step is to build a 135MW solar project by 2022.

According to the plan, Botswana will build 800MW photovoltaic power generation projects, 200MW solar thermal power generation projects, 50MW wind power generation projects, 140MW battery energy storage projects, 300MW coal-fired power generation projects and 250MW coal-bed methane power generation projects.

It is reported that the specific technical route of the proposed solar thermal power generation project may be determined according to storage requirements.

In recent years, the cost of solar power generation has dropped sharply, which has greatly encouraged the Botswana government to plan more renewable energy projects when formulating the IRP. Up to now, the country has been very dependent on coal-fired power generation and imported energy.

The Ministry of Mineral Resources, Green Technology and Energy Security of Botswana said in a statement that the new IRP program will provide industries, services, and residents of the country with more competitive, cost-effective, and sustainable electricity prices.
