Power shortages in Lebanon highlights the potential for renewables

This FT story about power shortages in Lebanon highlights the potential for renewables to fill the void left by dysfunctional state energy provision. With an energy infrastructure still recovering from the destruction of the civil war, the state energy monopoly fails to provide the country with the electricity it needs; private diesel generators have filled the void offering expensive and heavily polluting electricity.

Lebanon has lots of sunshine and windy mountains and investors are starting to wake up to the fact that solar will provide cheap electricity in a region where other states such as Jordan, Saudi Arabia and the UAE have already made huge investments in solar energy.
