Irish IPP to Develop 200MW Solar PV Plant in Libya

  • Irish independent power producer, AG Energy Partners (AG), has obtained authorisation from the Libyan Privatisation and Investment Board (PIB) and the General Electricity Company of Libya (GECOL) to build a 200MW solar PV plant in Libya.
  • The 200MW facility will be located in Ghadames, 650 km from the capital Tripoli.
  • No details are provided on PPA and associated tariff. 

AG is a privately held Independent Power Producer (IPP) focus on developing and investing in renewable power generation facilities in Africa.

AG is led by a management team with extensive experience of developing infrastructure projects in Africa and energy expertise has been recruited from the State Utility in Ireland, theElectricity Supply Board (ESB). With management experience of developing billion dollar power projects in Europe, Middle East and Africa, AG Energy is currently active in Libya, Tunisia, Algeria and Nigeria with 3,500 Mw of solar and wind projects at various stages of development.

Libya has lagged far behind in renewable energy development, due to the civil war and political instability that followed the fall of former President Muammar Gaddafi’s regime in 2011. The meeting between GDP and GECOL also aimed to form a working group between the two entities for the implementation of the electricity sector plan for the period 2025-2030.

Green Building Africa promotes the need for net carbon zero buildings and cities in Africa. We are fiercely independent and encourage outlying thinkers to contribute to the #netcarbonzero movement. Climate change is upon us and now is the time to react in a more diverse and broader approach to sustainability in the built environment. We challenge architects, property developers, urban planners, renewable energy professionals and green building specialists. We also challenge the funding houses and regulators and the role they play in facilitating investment into green projects. Lastly, we explore and investigate new technology and real-time data to speed up the journey in realising a net carbon zero environment for our children.
