KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): More than 40 companies operating in the field of renewable energies met in here to launch the Afghan Renewable Energy Association, the German Cooperation with Afghanistaninfo-icon said on Tuesday.

Private-sector companies discussed how they could play a greater role in promoting the use of renewable energy in Afghanistan, a statement from the German organisation said.

The association will ensure effective dialogue and coordination within the private sector and between companies and the Ministry of Energy and Water.

The firms attending the meeting are involved in all aspects of the value chain: they manufacture, sell, operate or maintain renewable energy products and schemes.

“Working together in the Afghan Renewable Energy Association, the private sector aims to increase use of renewable energies for supplying Afghanistan with much needed, stable and sustainable power,” the statement added.

Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH has been helping the Ministry of Energy and Water promote renewable energy in Afghanistan since 2010.
