Sustainable Energy in Sri Lanka

Parallel to the global energy transition, we are driving the sustainable energy revolution taking place across Sri Lanka underscored by the steady expansion of the Sri Lankan energy sector.

The sustainable energy industry is expected to facilitate a number of economic activities and continue to grow rapidly in the coming years. There is tremendous economic opportunities and for the countries that innovate and develop these clean energy technologies and great economic advantages which utilise these clean energy.

Sri Lanka is endowed with several types of renewable energy resources, including biomass, hydropower, solar and wind.
