According to Ahmed Mousa, a spokesperson for the Ministry, the projects will soon be launched after the Iraqi Electricity Ministry signed two days ago a contract for consultancy.

“Masdar will build solar power stations in four governorates with a total production of 1,000 MW in the first stage,” he said. He added that the provinces compromise Maysan, Dhi Qar, Nineveh, and Alnbar, Iraq’s largest governorate.

According to him, the Ministry had already signed an agreement with Masdar for these projects and they will be completed in 2-3 years.

Masdar announced in October 2021 that it would build 100 MW and 250MW plants in Ramadi, 100 MW plant each in Mosul, 100MW, 450 MW plant at Dhi Qar, and a 100MW plant in Amarah. This will add up to 1,000 MW.

Mousa claimed that Baghdad had signed other contracts to construct solar power plants using Total of France, and other companies producing a total of 7,500 MW.

Officials stated that such projects would increase renewable energy sources to almost 33% of the total energy mix by 2030, and total solar production could reach 12,000 MW by 2030.
