Sri Lanka’s power industry has become a hotspot for business/investment opportunities. The adoption of a policy by the Sri Lankan government to increase Sri Lanka’s renewable energy generation component to 70% of the country’s energy mix has also helped boost the business/investment opportunities in the power industry, especially in the renewable energy generation sector. With Sri Lanka’s overall economic expansion and the target of becoming an emerging business destination in the South Asian region have all increased the country’s demand for power, especially clean energy. The growth and profits recorded by local businesses engaged in the power industry, especially in the renewable energy sector, indicates the growing business potential in the renewable energy sector. Among the opportunities in the sector are the introduction of state-of-the-art innovations related to the renewable energy generation sector for more efficient use of clean and sustainable energy. Given the growing demand and expanding opportunities, foreign businesses/investors could explore the opportunities. Foreign businesses/investors could also look at forming partnerships or joint ventures with local businesses engaged in the power industry with the aim of further expansion.
