Energy Intensity Reduction in Gulf Countries

Posted by on Mar 6, 2012

Oil exports underpin the economic stability of gulf countries, but the ability to export is threatened by ballooning domestic energy demand in those countries.  This Chatham House project, working with regional partners, develops a set of recommendations for improving energy efficiency in GCC countries, drawing on the experiences of utilities, policymakers, industry experts, and academics.  Oxford Energy Associates were involved in developing a tool for quantifying the potential and cost-effectiveness of various sources of energy efficiency savings, including projections out to 2025 to help set energy intensity targets.  A presentation on the project is available (pdf).
