Solar Energy in Afghanistan

Afghanistan has an energy problem. There is not enough electricity generated and most of that goes to the urban areas. The rural areas suffer from a lack of energy. Although there are ambitious programs to build dams and electrical generation facilities - the bottom line is that many rural areas will not see this energy in their areas for many years - due to extreme poverty and the ongoing insurgency. Afghanistan needs a source of renewable, sustainable energy. Solar powered energy offers promise in Afghanistan to meet the needs of the remote village and community areas. Visit the link below for a listing of organizations promoting solar energy, firms developing solar energy programs, companies manufacturing solar panels, and publications and news articles about solar energy in Afghanistan.
