Renewable  Energy  Center

Renewable Energy center under the Ministry of Energy and Mines has been established in 1992. The main objectives for its establishment are studying, assessing and developing the potential of renewable energy resources and promoting the efficient use of all energy resources of the country.

It encompasses three main units namely:

  • • Appropriate technology Unit
    • small energy enterprise Unit
  •  • Training Unit 

The center has mechanical workshop, electrical, electronic work shop and wood work shop with vast display area.

Mission statement

The mission of the Renewable  Energy Center in a broad sense is:

  • • To introduce renewable energy technology throughout the country.
    • To ensure safety on renewable energy technology applications
    • Create awareness and assure proper utilization of renewable energy technologies
    • Protect the environment by reducing pollutions and using clean energy technology
