ABOUT
Who We Are

About Us

This is a UNDP-implemented, GEF-financed initiative designed to support removal of barriers to the adoption of utility-scale grid connected wind energy in Sudan.

This project will follow a system approach to integrate energy policy analysis within the broader developmental objectives and establish policy and regulatory frameworks for encouraging private investments in grid-connected wind energy. Sudan currently has plans to develop utility-scale wind farms in three regions, Dongola (100MW) in the North, Nyala (20MW) in the West and the Red Sea coastal region (180MW).

Project Timeline

Project Timeline

The project is expected to last 60 months.

Project Manager

It is with great sorrow that we learn of the death of The National Project Manager – Mohammad Ali Hamid on June 9th, 2016 in a bus accident during his travel to Port-Sudan. He is a great loss not only to the Wind Energy Project but also to the entire Sudan. He made an outstanding contribution to the spread of the renewable energy field.

We extend our condolence to his family and Project Partners. May his soul rest in eternal peace and may Almighty give his family the strength to bear this irreplaceable loss.
We, on behalf of the project and project partners, express our grief and condolence to all who are bereaving over his death.
Our eyes are tearful. Our hearts are full of anguish, but we will only say what pleases our Lord. O, Mohammad! We are indeed grieved over your separation.
