About this project


The proposed project aims to create conditions for long-term and sustainable wind power development that is an environmental priority and to enable the development of a commercially-viable wind energy industry in Sudan. The project has been designed to play a catalytic role for the transformational scaling-up of renewable energies and other mitigation activities in Sudan


To overcome barriers to the market development of utility-scale wind farms in Sudan.
