  • KSA’s Petrochemical Earnings Improve in 2016, but Top Line Remains Muted

    Lower oil prices coupled with weak global demand continued to weigh on the kingdom’s petrochemical sector in 2016. Gross margin expansion however, did support bottom-line growth.

  • Saudi Arabia Budget 2017 — Expect Aggressive Deficit Reduction

    If its budget is anything to go by, Saudi Arabia sees 2017 as a glass half full.

  • Fiscal Deficit Overview in the GCC

    A sustained slump in oil prices has eaten into the fiscal buffers that GCC countries built up over years of plentiful oil revenues.

    While the region witnessed an acute deterioration in its external and fiscal balances over the past three years, GCC countries anticipate a relatively lower fiscal deficit in 2017 as compared to the previous year, likely due to a series of reforms within the region as well as a rally in oil prices due to production cuts. 

  • Expect Sturdy Growth in the GCC’s Education Sector

    Most oil-exporting Arab states face the analogous challenges of fostering inclusive growth and creating job opportunities. The present slump in oil prices has exacerbated these challenges. Given the facts, economic diversification could be a viable option to boost growth, create jobs, and improve resilience to oil price volatility in the long run.

    This won’t be possible, however, unless the GCC’s education sector can gear up to give their students a fighting chance on a global playground.

  • Global Clean Energy Outlook

    Cheaper coal, oil, and gas haven't been able to derail a general shift toward greener, more sustainable sources of energy. In this report, we'll examine the global transition towards clean energy, investments in renewable capacity additions, and the potential opportunities (and roadblocks) in the growing renewables sector.  

  • 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.
