Masdar to build 2 GW of solar projects in Iraq

Masdar, a renewable energy firm based in the United Arab Emirates, plans to build solar photovoltaic projects in Iraq with a total capacity of 2 GW.

The projects, which are anticipated to support Iraq’s aim of installing 10 GW of solar power capacity by 2025, will be developed in the country’s central and southern regions. The projects will be one of the largest renewable photovoltaic solar projects in the Middle East. Iraq is aiming for 20 to 25 percent of its energy to come from renewable sources rather than fossil fuels, which will require installing about 10 to 12 GW of capacity.
