Qatar Power Report Q2 2016 - New Study Released

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Sun Apr 03 2016

Investment continues in Qatar's power sector, as the government seeks to ensure it maintains an energy surplus as well as securing the country's vital desalinated water supplies. Although a relatively small market, extensive investment in transport and social infrastructure will ensure that demand for electricity remains high and there are a number of power projects in the pipeline. Qatar's power sector remains dominated by natural gas fired power, supported by extensive natural gas reserves, though we are now seeing a gradual foray into renewable energy, particularly solar power, as the country begins the process of diversifying the domestic energy mix.
