ELECTRICITY GENERATION THROUGH RENEWABLE ENERGY BY 2050

View

In 2015, 52 percent of Sri Lanka’s electricity was generated through fossil fuels. Indigenous fossil fuel resources are scare, so the fossil fuel used for electricity is imported, a significant part of Sri Lanka’s import expenditure. As a developing country, Sri Lanka’s demand for electricity is going to increase in the future. It is imperative therefore, for Sri Lanka to secure its energy future by focusing on the development and adoption of indigenous, renewable sources of energy to meet this growing demand and reduce the economic burden of imports.
