Project News:

Mongolia is among the most heavily coal dependent developing member countries of ADB, and its energy sector is the largest contributor to its greenhouse gas emissions, accounting for about two thirds of the total,” says Director General of ADB’s East Asia Department (EARD) James Lynch. “To decarbonize Mongolia’s energy sector, the government aims to increase the country’s share of renewable energy, especially wind and solar, which hold great potential for Mongolia.”


The country’s combined wind and solar power potential is estimated to be equivalent to 2,600 gigawatts (GW) of installed capacity or 5,457 terawatt-hours of clean electricity generation per year. The amount is enough to meet the country’s energy demand (around 1.2GW as of 2018), and can meet northeast Asia’s regional energy demand with a suitable transmission infrastructure. The government’s target is a share of renewable energy in total installed capacity of 20% by 2023 and 30% by 2030 as announced in the State Policy on Energy, 2015–2030.


“The country’s rich renewable energy resources have not been fully utilized yet for various reasons,” says Director of ADB's Sustainable Infrastructure Division in the East Asia Department Sujata Gupta. “One of the challenges is the variability of renewable energy generation and the lack of regulation reserve—or flexible generation. Because the renewable energy output fluctuates subject to weather, the regulation reserve—usually contributed by the other power plants—needs to constantly fill the gap between the renewable energy outputs and demand.”


Further, even if a sufficient amount of regulation reserve is available, the country’s energy market lacks the system to provide regulation or ancillary service in an efficient manner. For those reasons, renewable energy plants’ output is curtailed during off-peak hours. This has made the country’s renewable energy investment less attractive for the private sector.
