Siemens Energy signs agreement to develop Afghanistan as an energy hub

Siemens Energy has signed a multi-phase agreement with Afghanistan to establish the country as an energy hub in central Asia by developing a modern, sustainable, and cost-effective power system, incorporating the massive potential of renewable energy generation.

As part of the Afghanistan energy hub agreement, through a three-phased plan, Siemens Energy will support Afghanistan’s power sector by developing a reliable and affordable electricity supply, whilst addressing the efficient use of natural resources, to improve revenue streams back to the government. The first phase of the Afghanistan energy hub will focus on establishing the commercial and technical feasibility. The second phase will focus on grid expansion and stabilization, completing a national grid with international connections and the formation of local generation hubs utilizing renewable energy. The third phase will focus on developing the renewable energy sector as well as further sustainable and cost-effective energy production.
