Despite the massive disruptions of 2020, The Sultanate of Oman seems to be moving ahead with many of its solar and renewable energy projects. From Amin Power plant, which still stands as the world’s largest operational solar PV plant that is adopting bifacial module technology, to the Oman’s electricity sector being liberalized, new opportunities for private sector involvement at all levels are expected, including renewable energy, generation, transmission and distribution. Solar Rooftop segment is booming, with 10 -30% of residential buildings expected to be covered by solar panels over the next few years. Also, several new clean energy topics are emerging in the Sultanate such as Green Hydrogen and Floating Solar projects.

Yet, with all these progress, there are still important challenges for the country to be able to truly move forward its renewables transition program.  With so much activity taking place on the solar and renewable market in Oman, experts will discuss:

– Opportunities policy and regulation changes could open up for solar/ renewables market such as update on launch of cost reflective tariffs program, creation of merchant market and allowing solar wheeling schemes

– C&I, how is the country progressing to expand C&I  implementations, updates on programs like Sahim II

– Update on Solar project programs at PDO, OPWP and OQ

– Opportunities for Solar in the Oil and Gas sector in Oman

– Wider initiatives to encourage the implementation of solar and encourage renewables transition in the future 

– Outlook for Floating solar projects in the country

– Technology trends
