GCC Power Market

Innovative and renewable resources to suit rapid growth in the GCC The GCC countries, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates are witnessing a great rise in business, entertainment, tourism, education and other industries. Thus, power supply is becoming in more demand as time passes. According to the World Energy Council, the GCC will require 100 GW of additional power over the next 10 years to meet demand. The GCC power sector will require about US$ 50 billion of investment in new power generating capacity and US$ 20 billion in desalination.

According to the Kuwaiti Electricity and Water Ministry, there is an estimated 8 percent increase annually in demand of power supply. The UAE has enough gas to provide 20,000 - 25,000 MW of electricity, but peak power demand is forecast to climb to 33,400 MW by 2020. Dubai has both power and desalination capacity forecasted to triple in size to 16,000 MW and 800 million g/d by 2015. Oman uses 19.5 million m3 of gas per day for power generation and desalination.

This presents stakeholders with the challenge of finding and using innovative ways of power supply while keeping in mind issues of the environment and thus there is a rise in considering renewable resources.
