Algeria: The National Renewable Energy program 2011-2030   Leave a comment

The national renewable energy adopted by the Council of Ministers in February 2011 is available in three steps.

The first stage will take place over the years from 2011 to 2013, which will be dedicated “to the consolidation of data across studies and pilot projects to test different technologies to implement.”
The second stage is scheduled for the years 2014 and 2015, which will “launch the substantial investments required to be increased.”

“And the last stage, from 2016 to 2020, will be the large-scale deployment to achieve, by 2030, producing 22,000 megawatts of electricity by means of new and renewable energy, more double the current capacity by the use of natural gas. ” Part, or 10,000 MW will be for export, but with a guarantee of long-term purchase. By 2030, 40% of electricity production for the domestic market will be home renouvelable.Malgré potential lower than solar and wind power, biomass, geothermal and hydropower will be developed.

The program provides for the creation of “a sixty solar photovoltaic and solar thermal, wind farms and hybrid power plants.” Parallel to the development of renewable energy, other actions are planned to develop “home insulation, the solar water heater, the spread of light at lower power consumption, reducing energy consumption in the industry, with government incentives and the development of vehicles powered by the collective and individual gas energy. ”

It is expected that these actions will ‘save nearly 600 billion cubic meters of gas over 25 years. Half of this volume will be well preserved for the coming decades, while the other half exported to generate revenue for the country estimated at minimum additional $ 200 billion over the next 25 years. “However, these actions will require investments importants.La strategy of renewable energy development will be based on the establishment of an industry to manufacture equipment with the goal of creating 100 000 jobs.

If the period 2011-2013 will be devoted to “mastery of knowledge and technologies related to this area yet again, including at the global level”, the program must also help “to promote cooperation with all public and private foreign partners willing to share their knowledge and work for associations based on an equitable sharing of benefits. ”

The objective is to develop “partnerships with international industrial groups specializing in Algeria for the production of equipment and technologies needed to new and renewable energy.”
