Study on Renewable Energy Resources, Oman - authority for ...

Renewable Energy Resources in Oman A parallel issue is generation at the end-user, for instance an industry, which decides to establish renewable auto-generation and might have capacity to export to the grid during some parts of the day. This industry cannot sell the surplus production to the local DC or to OPWP under the current legislation. There is no mechanism defined in the legislation to make the transaction and no tariff/price regulation defined for such a transaction. In many countries there exist an established buy-back system (net-banking), where auto-generators buy and sell at the (same) prevailing price/tariff, instead of buying at the prevailing tariff and selling at a much lower rate. This mechanism has been effective in supporting small scale local renewable energy production. Finally, the usage of the permitted tariff - where it is below economic cost - is discouraging end-users to use solar applications and similar, as supplement to their purchases from the grid, because the pay back time of the investment becomes too long, as previously mentioned.
