As part of its efforts to limit climate change, the National Initiative for Energy Support and Emissions Reduction team announced the allocation of about 90 billion dinars to convert more than 500 government buildings to run on solar energy.
The rapporteur of the initiative, Shaima Mazhar Sadiq, told Al-Sabah: The Ministry of Planning has allocated about 90 billion dinars to convert more than 500 government buildings to operate with a renewable (solar) energy system. This comes in light of the project that the Ministry of Electricity is working on to reduce the volume of emissions and limit climate change. Which the country is witnessing, indicating that these buildings will be linked to an electronic system to monitor their performance centrally by the Energy Research Department of the Ministry in cooperation with the National Data Center Department in the Council of Ministers.
It is noteworthy that coordination was made earlier with the Ministry of Science and Technology to prepare a study on the aforementioned buildings, to install solar energy systems for them, and in fact it has been determined to begin work on them at the beginning of next year 2024, within the plan of the National Initiative to support energy and reduce the volume of emissions.
Sadiq stated that the United Nations program provided advisory support for the implementation of the project, while the Ministries of Electricity and Environment prepared all parties concerned with its implementation, especially after the risks of environmental pollution became a threat to the reality of life, such as dry lands, high rates of desertification, and an increase in dust storms, in addition to rising temperatures. It was necessary to find solutions that reduce emissions that pose harm to the environmental reality.
