Utilities

Qatar Utilities 2014
An efficient and reliable supply of water and electricity feeds Qatar’s expanding economy, while the country’s hydrocarbons resources finance its tremendous growth. Major investments in developing the power supply have resulted in excess capacity in the domestic market, but forecasts suggest demand will begin to outstrip supply by 2018 at current capacity. Though government agencies or government-controlled companies dominate the utilities sector, there is still broad scope for private sector participation in areas such as designing, building and operating water and electricity infrastructure. Enhanced regulation will likely be key to encouraging greater participation from the private sector going forward. This chapter contains an interview with Essa bin Hilal Al Kuwari, President, KAHRAMAA.
