Lebanon desperately needs power. Its severe economic crisis, combined with its dependence on fossil fuels, is leading to a rapid deterioration in its electricity provision. However, there is clear potential for utility-scale renewables to be profitable while simultaneously lowering costs for providers and for customers. It is essential that a political solution is found to enable such investments in renewables to proceed.
This Briefing Paper was published by the Anti-Corruption Evidence (ACE) research consortium. It provides concrete recommendations for policy-makers and donors to further the development of renewables, from which the economy, the environment and the people of Lebanon can benefit.
