Lebanon to use wind energy by
introducing windmill project
Lebanon took its first step to introduce wind energy in the country, which aimed at reducing dependence on expensive forms of energy, the local newspaper Daily Star reported Friday on its website.
The report said that Lebanese Minister of Power and Hydraulic Resources Mohammed Fneish signed an agreement with Paris-based the French Global Wind Energy Company Thursday to implement a windmill project.
Fneish said that the project "will pave the way for the introduction of the first windmill project in Lebanon," adding that "we are pinning high hopes on energy rationing."
According to the official, the agreement is part of the ministry's plan for alternative energy, especially in light of higher oil prices.
The project will be carried out over the next seven months and an international tender will be issued soon to attract investors, said the report. Source: Xinhua
