Abstract

Energy has become an important sector in the ‘Omani Vision 2020’ strategy. Renewable energy sources can form a vital and strategic solution for the provision of electric power in the Sultanate. This paper provides a comprehensive review of Oman's conventional and renewable energy resources (wind and solar). Although Oman is not currently utilizing its renewable energy resources, this study reveals that renewable energy resources, such as wind and solar energy, have enough potential to be directly utilized for electricity generation.
