Share of Renewable Energy in Mongolia Reaches Record High

The share of renewable energy in Mongolia's total electricity production has reached a record high in 2018, local media reported Monday.

The share of renewable electricity generation rose to 16 percent on average for 2018, the ministry of energy was quoted as saying, Xinhua reported.

A solar power plant with a capacity of 15 megawatts opened in late June in Zamiin-Uud soum in Mongolia's southeastern Dornogovi province, while two other solar power plants with the capacity of producing 30 MW and 20 MW were put into operation recently.

Also, a wind farm with a total capacity of 55 MW was commissioned in late September nearby Sainshand city, capital of the province.

The four energy plants have contributed to renewable energy capacity by 120 MW this year, and the country has a potential wind capacity of 1,100 gigawatts.

The country, which enjoys more than 250 days of sunshine a year, has set a goal to make renewable energy use account for 20% by 2020 and 30% by 2030.

With three million people, the country's installed power generation capacity is 1,500 MW.
