Renewable Energy

Harnessing renewable energy sources to meet a nation’s electrical power requirement whilst minimizing the use of environmentally hazardous fossil fuel sources is being universally adopted. Being a tropical island there are numerous renewable energy sources available in Sri Lanka too such as year around sunshine, coastal gust of winds, hydro resources etc. To achieve the national goal of 70% electricity generation using renewable energy sources approximately 6000 MWs need to be added and DIMO with its aggressive participation in the recent tenders floated demonstrated its commitment to this national endeavour.
