Bhutan’s Renewable Energy Roadmap intends to strengthen existing institutional environment and provide strategic direction to the government to develop renewable energy during the 12th Plan and beyond. More specifically, the RE Roadmap has been framed to achieve the RE development goals of the Royal Government of Bhutan (RGoB), underlined in periodic plans and RE policy documents. Top priorities include: energy security; reduction in trade deficit; reduction in GHG emission; conservation of forest; improvement of living standards of rural population through reduction in indoor air pollution, and better space heating/cooling and productive end uses. The roadmap will cover the period up to year 2030, which has been divided into four time slots: 2017, 2020, 2025 and 2030 to look into the demand and supply scenario.
