The Sultanate of Oman seeks to transition to renewable energy and reach a balance between sustainable development and optimal use of natural resources for the country’s economic growth.
To reduce the effects of climate change, the daily electricity production from renewable energy has been increased to 650 MW and will further be increased to 3350 MW by 2027.
The Ibri solar power station is situated on 13 million square meters and was inaugurated in the middle of 2022. It has a 500 MW production capacity, which can cover 50,000 homes, and reduce 340,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions each year.
The government intends to increase the proportion of renewable energy that is connected to the main network by 20% by 2030. It also plans to be among the top 40 countries in the global environmental performance index.
