Kuwait: Use of Renewable Energy in Kuwait ‘Far Behind’ Target

Arab Times, 30 October 2022: The Kuwaiti government has published a report showing that Kuwait lags far behind in its use of renewable energy, with only 0.3% of the total installed capacity of power plants coming from renewable sources as of the end of 2020. 

The target percentage set at the United Nations Climate Change Conference increased from 1% in 2015 to 15% in 2030. 

The report includes recommendations for the state to increase the proportion of electricity production from renewable sources to ensure sustainable prosperity and enable Kuwait to contribute to reductions in emissions of greenhouse gases.
