Yet, new technologies are being developed in the country, including four nuclear power plants with a combined capacity of 5.6GW by 2020 and the construction of a new 1,200MW coal-fired power plant. The country is also starting to tap into its solar potential. That said we expect the renewable sector to play a small role in the country's power generation mix in...
