Iraq has given the green light to a solar power initiative valued at approximately 90 billion Iraqi dinars ($68 million) that will involve the installation of solar power systems in 500 government offices and ministries.


This initiative, supported by the United Nations, aims to transition gradually to renewable energy sources and decrease emissions by replacing conventional power networks in these 500 buildings.


Shaima Sadiq, the secretary of the National Energy Initiative, confirmed that the Planning Ministry, responsible for overseeing the project, has secured the necessary funding, with plans to launch it before 2024.


She emphasized that this effort aligns with a national strategy to promote renewable energy and shift away from conventional power sources to reduce carbon emissions.
