KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): A United States-funded renewable energy laboratory was inaugurated at Kabul University on Wednesday, the USAIDinfo-icon said.

The Kabul University Renewable Energy Laboratory (KURE Lab) was established by the Afghanistaninfo-icon Clean Energy Program (ACEP) in collaboration with Kabul University.

It would help ensure the self-sustainability of renewable energy projects being implemented throughout Afghanistan, the USAID said in a statement.

ACEP’s main goal is to foster Afghanistan’s energy independence and economic development through projects that maximise the use of renewable energy resources, it added.

“Renewable energy is important for development of a country. Afghanistan has many resources of renewable energy and I appreciate the assistance of American people for establishment of this laboratory,” said Kabul University Chancellor Professor Hamidullah Amin.

"The US government through USAID is dedicated to bringing Afghanistan the benefits of clean, renewable energy-energy generated by the sun, water and wind. The laboratory will ensure the self-sustainability of renewable energy projects being implemented throughout Afghanistan," said Deputy Ambassador E. Anthony Wayne.
