Companies hope to build wind farms in Lebanon

BEIRUT: Twenty-three local and international companies have submitted declarations of intent for building wind farms in Lebanon, the Energy and Water Ministry said Tuesday. “The number of companies shows great interest from the private sector to invest in wind energy. It also shows the opportunities allowed by the publishing of the ‘Atlas of Wind Power in Lebanon,’” the statement said. The ministry said the next step would be to form a technical committee to study the proposals before moving to invite companies to an international tender. The committee would include members representing Electricite du Liban, Lebanese Center for Power Conservation in addition to the ministry, the statement said.
