Access to sustainable energy for lighting to host communities – Lebanon

Liban

Titre : Access to sustainable energy for lighting to host communities – Lebanon

Pays /Région : Liban

Code projet : LRF-32

Date : Feb 2017

Présentation
As per the Lebanon Crisis Response Plan (LCRP) for 2017 – 2020, the increased electricity demand caused by the Syrian crisis has created additional stress on the already weak electricity system and underscored its lack of resilience. A study currently undertaken by the Ministry of Energy and Water (MoEW) and UNDP reveals the need to supply an additional 450 to 480 MegaWatts (MW) to cover the demand of the 1.5 million displaced Syrians. Already before the crisis, the Lebanese Energy sector was weak and inefficient and unable to meet the electricity demand. It had reached a point where electricity reliability and service delivery had become significant impediments to economic development and where financial sustainability was unattainable without major reform. One of the measures mentioned in the LCRP in response to the shortfalls in electricity supply and in support of host-communities, the use of solar off-grid lighting for informal settlements and public municipal streets is a recommended measure. This project is in line with the objectives and ongoing programmes of the MoSA-UNDP Lebanon Host Community Support Programme specifically providing support to improve the delivery of basic services at community level and improve the capacities of municipalities in the response to the crisis among their community, promoting conflict management.
