ADB commissions off-grid renewable hybrid energy in Mongolia

The system is expected to supply 1,500 local residents amongst others. 

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) has commissioned a new off-grid renewable hybrid energy system in Mongolia. 

The project is expected to provide power in Altai Soum, which is 400 kilometres away from Altai-Uliastai energy system. 

“This new hybrid energy system will supply over 1,500 local residents, 350 households, and 25 organizations in one of Mongolia’s most isolated soums with high-quality renewable energy using inexhaustible solar energy,” Deputy Minister of Energy M. Bayarmagnai said. 

“This project is an example of how the government is working to provide the most essential services by bringing innovative technologies to the benefit of the people.”

Under the Upscaling Renewable Energy Sector Project, the ADB plans to support 41 megawatts of distributed renewable energy systems.

The ADB noted these will use a range of renewable energy technologies to supply clean electricity and heat in the less-developed region of western Mongolia. 

These includes off-grid  solar power plants, such as battery management system, and energy management system. 

“The new hybrid system is a demonstration of the government’s commitment to shift to use of more modern and cleaner technologies in the country,” ADB Principal Energy Specialist Shannon Cowlin said. 

“Not only will the system provide secure power supply to the people, it will do so without contributing to localized air pollution, which can affect even isolated regions of Mongolia during winter months.”
