  • Renewable Energy in Lebanon: Promising Potential, Diminishing Challenges, and Evolving Policies By: Nader Hajj ShehadehPricing Renewables: Feed-in Tariff Design and Structure for Wind Farms and Solar (PV-CSP) Plants NREA , Cairo October 23-27, 2011
  • November 9, 2011 Nader Hajj Shehadeh 2
  • Lebanon in Brief• Area: 10,452 m2 (1% of Egypt’s)• Population: 4.1 million (5% of Egypt’s)• Electricity Demand: 15,000 MWh (17% of Egypt’s)• Electrification Rate: 99%• Electricity Supply: – 96% Thermal – 4 % Hydro• Electricity Deficit: ≈30%• Fuel Supply: 100% import• Solar Radiation: 1500 - 1900 kWh/m2November 9, 2011 Nader Hajj Shehadeh 3
  • Lebanon in Brief • Electricity Prices (US Cents):Residential 3.2 13Commercial 9 Industrial 5 20.6Production 19.6 Cost Average 8.8 November 9, 2011 Nader Hajj Shehadeh 4
  • The Market in LebanonNovember 9, 2011 Nader Hajj Shehadeh 5
  • The PV Market in Lebanon• Installed Capacity: ≈ 600 kW• Major Applications: – Electricity Production – Water Pumping – Street Lighting• Major Sectors: – Residential & Commercial – Agricultural – Public Services – TelecommunicationNovember 9, 2011 Nader Hajj Shehadeh 6
  • The PV Market in Lebanon• 2005-2011: Growth of 700%November 9, 2011 Nader Hajj Shehadeh 7
  • The Wind Market in Lebanon• Installed Capacity: ≈ 100 kW• Major Applications: – Electricity Production – Water Pumping – Street Lighting• Major Sectors: – Residential & Commercial – Agricultural – Public Services – TelecommunicationNovember 9, 2011 Nader Hajj Shehadeh 8
  • Obstacles• Major Problem: – The Electricity law in Lebanon limits the electricity trade to the EDL – People are allowed to generate their own electrify but not sell it or trade it.• Tax Incentives – 0% custom on PV and Wind systemsNovember 9, 2011 Nader Hajj Shehadeh 9
  • Support Programmes• CEDRO • Created in October 2007 for 5 years with a budget of $9.73 million funded by the Lebanon Recovery Fund by means of a donation from Spain. • Implements renewable energy pilot projects mainly in solar thermal, solar PV, and recently wind energy.November 9, 2011 Nader Hajj Shehadeh 10
  • PV Support Programmes• Achievements of CEDRO • 26 PV projects (≈ 40 kW) • 24 Electricity • 2 street lighting • Competitive bidding  shaving off prices • Technical trainings and capacity building workshopsNovember 9, 2011 Nader Hajj Shehadeh 11
  • PV Support ProgrammesNovember 9, 2011 Nader Hajj Shehadeh 12
  • PV Support ProgrammesNovember 9, 2011 Nader Hajj Shehadeh 13
  • Wind Support Programmes• Achievements of CEDRO • Wind Atlas is publishedOnshore 1.5 GW 6.1 GWPotentialNovember 9, 2011 Nader Hajj Shehadeh 14
  • Wind Support Programmes• Data Gathering • Anemometers installed on site to gather wind speed data • Afterwards, micro-wind applications will be installedNovember 9, 2011 Nader Hajj Shehadeh 15
  • The Financing : Net Metering• Net metering is launched by the ministry and the local authorities to be implemented by the end of the year• This is to be a first step towards a proper feed-in policyNovember 9, 2011 Nader Hajj Shehadeh 16
  • The Financing : NEEREA • NEEREA is developed in coordination with BDL (Circular No. 236) • Applies to environmental projects including collective solar water heating systems • NEEREA helps facilities to have loans at 0% interest and with full risk guarantee. • It was officially launched and banks are being trained.November 9, 2011 Nader Hajj Shehadeh 17
  • The Financing : NEEREA Expressing interest in implementing an RE project Design of project & submittal of technical offer Preparation of feasibility study Submittal of proposal (technical and Beneficiary feasibility) to commercial bank RE Company Send application to Central Bank of LebanonCommercial Bank November 9, 2011 Nader Hajj Shehadeh 18
  • The Financing : NEEREA Sends Applications to LCEC Reviews applications and sends recommendations to Central Bank Considers LCEC recommendation and decides on the projectCommercial Bank Sends official results to commercial bank Central Bank Commercial Bank notifies the beneficiary LCEC NB: Doesn’t apply to huge production farms November 9, 2011 Nader Hajj Shehadeh 19
  • Future PlansNovember 9, 2011 Nader Hajj Shehadeh 20
  • The NEEAP of LebanonInitiative 6: Electricity Generation from Wind PowerThis initiative aims to promote the generation of electricity through the use of wind energy. This can only be achieved through technical and policy related actions.November 9, 2011 Nader Hajj Shehadeh 21
  • The NEEAP of LebanonInitiative 6: Electricity Generation from Wind Power Next Steps •Wind energy market survey •Adopt a grid code •Independent Power Production (IPP)  100-200 MW by 2014. •Financial incentivesNovember 9, 2011 Nader Hajj Shehadeh 22
  • The NEEAP of LebanonInitiative 7: Electricity Generation from Solar EnergyThis initiative aims to start the development and promote the generation of electricity through the execution of Photovoltaic (PV) and Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) farms. For this to be achieved, proper policy and technical actions are to be taken in addition to ensuring the right financial modalities.November 9, 2011 Nader Hajj Shehadeh 23
  • The NEEAP of LebanonInitiative 7: Electricity Generation from Solar Energy Next Steps •PV market survey •Adopt a grid code to serve as an implementation decree •Prefeasibility study for PV and CSP farms •Financial incentivesNovember 9, 2011 Nader Hajj Shehadeh 24
