Saudi Arabia's fuel mix conundrum in the power sector


Saudi Arabia's fuel mix conundrum in the power sector

Report summary

The Insight models the oil savings that Saudi Arabia achieves when pursuing two policy goals simultaneously: prioritising gas in power generation and diversifying the fuel mix with renewables and nuclear energy. We find that increasing gas in the thermal fuel mix generates higher oil savings than adding renewables and nuclear, but that oil savings start to decline once gas reaches 70% in the thermal mix and renewables exceeds 40% of total generation capacity.
