Government efforts to diversify the power sector away from oil-fired electricity output will be hampered by low oil prices over our forecast period to 2025. Ambitious targets for non-hydropower renewables will not be realised due to stringent local content requirements and fiscal pressures. The majority of capacity increase will be focused on thermal electricity generation, particularly gas-fired power .

Latest Trends And Developments:

Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction has been awarded the contract for the construction of the 1.5 gigawatt combined cycle gas turbine power plant to the value of USD900mn. Doosan will partner with French firm Engie for the construction, and it is expected to be complete by the end of 2019.

The Saudi Arabian energy minister has stated in November 2016 that the government is committed to reducing its reliance on oil-fired power generation. The government intends to achieve this by increasing its gas production for gas-fired capacity while also aiming to increase renewable and nuclear energy.

Saudi Arabia's energy minister stated at the end of October 2016 that the government will be looking to identify a potential site to reserve a spot for the future construction of a nuclear power plant. The government will reportedly announce more concrete plans over the coming 12 months.

We maintain our forecast that Saudi Arabia will not have nuclear power capacity over our forecast period to 2025.

Siemens AG has stated that it expects to receive non-hydropower renewable electricity revenue of up to USD5bn in Saudi Arabia over the course of 2017 to 2020 from contracts to construct wind and solar farms. The company estimates that Saudi Arabia has potential for up to 300 megawatts (MW) of onshore wind capacity.

The Egyptian government has stated that it expects the planned interconnection between Egypt and Saudi Arabia to be completed within 2017. This was after a SAR6bn agreement was signed for interconnection between the two countries in 2013, with the aim of trading a peak capacity of 3,000MW.
