Kuwait is completely reliant on the burning of fossil fuels for energy generation and water desalination. According to the Ministry of Electricity and Water (MEW), by 2030, Kuwait’s energy demand will triple. Such demand will pose a great challenge to the energy generation sector’s capacity in terms of fuel and infrastructure. In order to diversify its energy mix Kuwait set renewable energy goal to increase share of renewable generation to 15% to be reached by 2030.
