Two new power plants expected to boost the country's troubled energy sector will be completed within a few months, according to Danish constructor BWSC, which is building the facilities in Jiyyeh and Zouk just outside of Beirut.The two new power plants will definitely improve Lebanon's energy sector, according to Roudi Baroudi, energy expert and CEO of the Energy & Environment Holding in Qatar.Baroudi explained that the new natural gas-fueled plants would reduce Lebanon's need to import fuel, ultimately driving down energy costs.Despite the new plants, Baroudi warned that if the 1 million Syrian refugees remain in Lebanon, the demand for energy would rise further and the increased generation would not be sufficient to end the chronic power rationing in the country.
