Utilities

Oman 2020 - Utilities

As the sultanate looks to manage its energy transition and inject capital into the fiscal balance, privatisation, sector reorganisation and renewable energy are key topics on the agenda for Oman’s utilities sector. Reducing reliance on natural gas is a top priority, with a number of large-scale projects using solar energy helping the country achieve its goal of 10% renewable energy on the grid by 2025. As several large-scale power and water projects are on the horizon, the utilities sector’s short-term outlook is promising. The shift from conventional to renewable sources is deemed a positive move, yet as the power segment approaches capacity, the water segment is looked to as having more long-term growth potential.
