Manama, Jan. 3 (BNA): Electricity and Water Affairs Minister Dr. Abdulhussein bin Ali Mirza received United Nations (UN) Resident Coordinator and UNDP Resident Representative Amin El-Sharkawi. Dr. Mirza paid tribute to the wise leadership, stressing keenness on supporting and encouraging clean energy as part of efforts to achieve sustainable development.

He commended the decision of the Cabinet to implement the net energy metering early this year (2018). El-Sharkawi congratulated Dr. Mirza on the issuance of the ministerial edit endorsing the net metering system, stressing the importance of the step which, he said, would fast-track the introduction of renewable energy technology, bolster the role of the private sector to import and install solar power equipment at homes, factories and hotels.

He underlined the UN readiness to support the Sustainable Energy Unit (SEU) and contribute to achieving the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, which, he said, would help Bahrain attract international investments and create jobs for Bahraini youth.
