Lebanon could license the construction of nearly 380 megawatts (MW) of renewable energy plants as early as this summer, a Ministry of Energy and Water (MoEW) official tells Executive.

The Tenders Department has once again rejected the conditions set out by the Ministry of Energy to launch a bidding process to lease power-generating barges with a 400-megawatt capacity for three months and another 400-megawatt capacity for six months.
