Iraq Moves Towards Renewable Energy

Iraq is moving towards renewable energy to make it a reliable source of power to meet the growing needs of the country.

Iraq, which suffers from a major drought crisis as a result of global warming and climate change, is seeking to move towards clean energy, especially solar energy, which abounds in the country, particularly during the burning summer when the temperature reaches 50 degrees Celsius.

The Iraqi Prime Minister, Mohammed Shia Al-Sudani, expressed Baghdad’s interest in investing in renewable energy due to its importance in the energy system and to face climate challenges that threaten the environment in most of the world, according to a statement issued by the Prime Minister’s Office.

Al-Sudani’s statement took place during his meeting with a delegation from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), headed by the director of the regional program for the Middle East and North Africa at IRENA, Zuhair Hamdi.

Al-Sudani explained that the Iraqi government will spare no effort to issue the legislation required to accelerate the transition towards renewable energy, especially with the availability of great capabilities in this field.
