The Parliament of Mongolia approved the National Renewable Energy Programme in order to increase the penetration of renewable energy in the energy system of Mongolia, improve the structure of power supply, and utilize renewable energy in off-grid soums (districts) and settlements to ensure ecological balance and improve the economic efficiency.
The National Renewable Energy Programme (2005-2020) shall be implemented in two stages: first stage from 2005-2010 and second stage from 2011-2020.
The goals of the Programme are as follows:
- Facilitate reliable, independent and effective operation of centralized energy grids and regional power supply systems by increased use of renewable energy.
- Gradually increase the share of renewable energy in the total electricity production, reaching 3-5 percent by 2010 and 20-25 percent by 2020.
- Provide power to all distant soums and settlements, which require significant amount of resources to be connected to the centralized power grid system, by introducing renewable energy generating systems.
