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.
