Sri Lanka Sustainable Energy Authority/Asian Development Bank
The Asian Development Bank appointed RMA in December 2011 to assess the wind and solar potential and to map the resource in the north western and southern areas of Sri Lanka by way of on-site measurements and comprehensive mapping of the resource. This 18-month study will develop investment-quality wind resource data to be used for the next phase of wind power development in Sri Lanka, that will most likely develop 100 MW of wind capacity between 2014-2020. The solar resource assessment study being conducted by RMA would establish investment grade information on the resource, which would be used by the Government and the private sector to develop power generation facilities in the future. RMA’s sub-consultant for this study is Geonet of Germany.
