    In recent years, renewable energy has moved onto the developmental agenda in Kuwait, as there is a need for diversification of energy resources, climate change concerns and greater public awareness.

    Green energy development in Kuwait is strengthened by widespread availability of solar and wind resources and tumbling costs of alternative energy systems. The country has one of the world’s highest per capita consumption of energy which is growing with each passing year. Kuwait has a new renewable energy program under Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research (KISR) and Kuwait Authority for Partnership Projects (KAPP), with the aim to generate 2GW renewable energy by 2030 which brings increasing potential in renewable energy sector and also various challenges to overcome.

    Kuwait Sustainable Energy and Technology Summit, scheduled to be held on 3 – 4 April 2018, in Kuwait City aims to bring together various stakeholders like ministries, research institutions and industry specialists to focus on sharing the current market trends, technological advancements and future challenges in renewable energy and sustainable development.

    Hyatt Regency, Dubai

    With vast stretches of desert, windy coastlines and some of the highest solar radiation levels in the world, the Middle East & North Africa (MENA) is a natural home for renewable energy. In the last decade, the MENA region has started to harness the abundant natural energy resources that it has in plentiful supply – namely, solar power – but also, more recently, it has looked to take advantage of the power of the wind. To augment this movement to “New Energy”, MENA New Energy (formerly known as MENASol) was created to facilitate the discussions between Governments looking to add renewable energy to their country’s grid and Developers who would build out each project.

    MENA New Energy 2018 will be held from the 24th to 25th of April 2018 at the Hyatt Regency, Dubai.

    Demand for power in Oman is expected to grow by almost 10 per cent per year until 2019, while the Sultanate’s annual growth rate for desalinated water will be 13 per cent by 2021.

    While the Sultanate of has could use petro-dollars to accelerate robust development of its economy over recent years, its economic progress is now poised to outdo its resources, posing complex questions about how best to diversify its energy mix, while ensuring energy security. There is no doubt Oman faces major energy challenges in the coming decades as conventional fossil fuel resources decrease and its young population continues to grow rapidly.

    These challenges leave the economy grappling about the long-term viability of the economy and the best energy sources and strategies to meet its needs and drive economic growth. Should Oman follow clean coal, renewable resources? How important is research and development and utilizing new technologies and solutions, analyzing the effects of frittering subsidies?
