Why Oman

  • Renewable energy resources as alternate energy systems especially Solar and wind energy are available in abundance in Oman and other GCC region.
  • Oman is the only country in the region with a dedicated Ministry for Environment and Climate Affairs. With a Royal Decree and a vision promulgated under Sultan Qaboos bin Said’s “Vision 2020” policy to produce 10 per cent of its total electricity requirement from renewable energy sources by 2020.
  • Oman has serious intentions to invest heavily in the development of its renewable energy capacity over the coming years.
  • Despite Oman’s extensive potential for power generation through solar energy, it has yet to develop a developed transparent legislative regime designed to regulate the renewable energy sector. With the right policies and incentives, this could become one of the premier growth industries in the Sultanate over the next decade.
