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?
Now in its second successful year, Oman Energy & Water Conference has continued to build a great reputation as an important meeting place for energy and water professionals from government, regulators and businesses across the Sultanate who are making differences in the world of water and energy. The conference will bring together energy and water industry professionals tasked with managing and generating energy and building resilience and sustainability into their businesses.
Join leading managers, engineers, researchers, government agencies/utilities, industry representatives, and other top experts from across the region to network and exchange the latest findings and case studies on the water-energy nexus. You will find Oman Energy & Water Conference to be an invaluable source of the latest business intelligence and technical knowledge, whether obtained from our expert speakers or in one-to-one meetings with your peers from around the world at the exhibition.
Oman Energy & Water Conference will provide comprehensive information on industry hot topics and opportunities for energy and resource recovery in our modern changing world. The technical program is structured to benefit all attendees, offering valuable learning opportunities to both seasoned professionals and newcomers to the field. The conference will emphasize putting ideas into action – moving forward on policy and practice.
It is designed to challenge thinking and spur creativity. Attendees will take away new ideas, new relationships, and increased motivation to contribute to addressing these integrated challenges in new ways.
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.

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.
Middle East Electricity is the region’s leading international trade event for the power industry, with dedicated product sectors for power generation, transmission & distribution, lighting, solar and brand new in 2018 – Energy Storage & Management Solutions.
Co-located with the Global Smart Energy Summit, it will be held from 6-8 March 2018 at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

After first ‘pioneering’ solar and wind projects such as in Morocco, Egypt and the UAE the broad energy transition has recently definitely shown a break-through in the entire region. The Desert Energy Leadership Summit, once a pioneer itself, has become THE leading event on the practical migration towards a fully emission free power supply in the regional and inter-regional context. ‘High level discussions’ about the emission free power markets of the future are important, but at the end what will determine success is the answer to ‘how do we get there’, step by step, safely and economically and with local benefits, taking proper account of the complex local environment. The Summit will, thus, focus on the experiences with concrete projects in the deserts, and the practical integration in the local and interconnected regional power grids and markets. A comprehensive power system approach adopting bankable RE and grid technologies and new elements, such as different types of storage and/or alternative transport media such as hydrogen or solar based desalination, will make the Summit an absolute ‘must’ for key professionals in the energy community and beyond.
