  • Is yield curve inversion coming to Asia?

    The US yield curve inverted recently with the widely-tracked spread between 10- year and 2-year bond yields turning negative on August 14 for a brief period, sending the equities market sharply down (Dow fell 800 points, its biggest fall this year). Earlier, in May, the 10-year 3-month yield spread turned negative. The inverted yield curve (negative 10–2-year spread) has preceded economic recessions several times in the past. However, there is no accurate lead time for when the recession will hit following the inversion of the yield curve (studies indicate a range of 8 to 24 months with an average period of 22 months).

  • Global Clean Energy Outlook

  • Solar Energy Sector in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

    The demand for electricity in Saudi Arabia is growing at a rate of 7% per year, pushed largely by a growing population. Current capacity stands at 66 GW, which is expected to double by 2030.

    One of the largest producers of oil in the world, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is also the world’s sixth largest consumer of oil. 

    The domestic consumption of oil has increased at an alarming rate of 4-6%, nearly twice the rate of population growth. Demand from residential as well as commercial customers has been steadily increasing, boosted by a rapid growth in both population and industry. The global leader in crude oil exports also burns more oil than any other country to generate electricity, spending nearly $16bn every year just to cope with local electricity demand.

    If these trends continue, domestic consumption could eat into Saudi oil exports and render the Kingdom a net oil importer by 2038.

    The shape of things to come has made the Saudi government keen to explore alternative sources of electricity production.

    Solar Energy is expected to get a huge boost in the coming years taking into account environmental and health effects, the economics of solar energy, the geographical location of solar power plants, and load forecasting in Saudi Arabia.
