Renewable Energy in Brunei Darussalam

·       Renewable energy accounts for just 0.14% of Brunei Darussalam’s total electricity generation mix, which comes from a 1.2 MW solar PV demonstration power plant, Tenaga Suria Brunei in Seria, Belait District. In view of the country’s significant solar radiance, solar PV offers the most practical option to meet domestic demand for electricity in terms of grid parity. However, Brunei Darussalam will continue to undertake resource assessment and feasibility of solar water heating, biofuels (diesel, gas, aviation fuels), and ocean (hydroelectricity).

·       Target to increase total share of renewable energy to at least 30% of the total capacity in the power generation mix using mainly solar photovoltaic (PV) by 2035 with 5 strategic objectives:
