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

Renewable Energy Resources in Oman 3 Recommendations for Further Research We recommend that Oman undertakes further research into the development of emerging renewable energy technologies such as CSP. The Authority might consider seeking advice from international consultants from time to time on the potential utilisation of new technologies in Oman. It would be sensible also to educate local staff in installations about the operation and maintenance of renewable energy systems. We also advise support of R&D activities within the renewable energy sector and promoting the local development and manufacture of renewable energy technology. Energy Efficiency Renewable energy should always be seen together with efficient use of energy. Energy efficiency should be afforded a high priority. Requirements for buildings regarding insulation, improved windows, shading and recovery of cold air on ventilation systems for cooling should be strengthen and enforced. Page 30 of 134 .

Renewable Energy Resources in Oman 3 Key information for Oman 3.1 Demography 3.1.1 Population The total population of Oman is 2.6 mill including 0.7 mill non-nationals, Ref./1/. The country is divided into nine administrative districts. Table 3.1 shows the variation of the population for each district. Table 3.1. Population in different Governorates and Regions. Administrative District Population Population, % Muscat Governorate 719,000 28% Musandam Governorate 31,000 1% Dhofar Governorate 241,000 9% Al Buraimi Governorate 88,000 3% Al Batinah Region 704,000 27% Adh Dhahirah Region 142,000 6% Ad Dakhliyah Region 287,000 11% Ash Sharqiyah Region 338,000 14% Al Wusta Region 26,000 1% Total 2,576,000 100% 3.1.2 Housing The total number of housing in Oman is in the order of 425,000, Ref /2/. This number includes apartments in building and individual houses. 3.2 Industry Industrial development in Oman has traditionally focused on relatively smallscale manufacturing. However, with the discovery in the early 1990s of large deposits of non-associated natural gas, the focus of government efforts has shifted to attracting large investment in capital-intensive gas-based industries.
