Abstract

Despite the abundance of renewable energy resources in Oman, especially wind and solar, the country’s deployment of renewable energy does not exceed one percent. Domestic oil and gas resources play a major role in this. At present, natural gas accounts for 97 percent of fuel used for power generation, while diesel accounts for 3 percent, and the abundance of these resources has influenced governmental policy, with the Omani government subsidising both the generation and distribution of power from fossil fuels.
