The Sustainable Energy Authority is working on projects to create grid-tied solar PV power plants on rooftops and car parks and Electric Vehicle charging stations for the Ministry of Education and Ministry of Labor and Social Development.
The power plant for MoE will be 5MWac, and for Labor Ministry will be 2.5MWac. The project for the Ministry of Labor will also be BOOM based.
In April 2021, the Minister of Electricity and Water Affairs Wael bin Nasser Al Mubarak and the Electricity and Water Authority (EWA)’s CEO Shaikh Nawaf bin Ibrahim Al Khalifa inaugurated the first electric car charging station in the Atrium Mall in Saar. The minister, at that time, said that the station is the first among several stations that would open in various regions of Bahrain.
