Our forecast for the UAE power sector remains bullish over the next decade, driven by the UAE government's efforts to expand its power capacity. As corroborated by recent developments, we continue to expect the UAE to focus on expanding its nascent nuclear and solar industries, which will result in these two sectors making a much greater contribution to the country's electricity capacity and generation mix over our forecast period. While solar and nuclear gain traction, the role of natural gas in the power mix will diminish, freeing up gas for export. Yet we remain sceptical about the ability of the country to meet its targets with the anticipated speed.

Key Trends And Developments

The UAE government - at both the federal and emirate levels - will continue to prioritise generating capacity expansion programmes, focusing on integrating a wider range of fuel sources into its electricity mix. Nuclear and renewable energy are high on the list of priorities, as the government looks to conserve domestic hydrocarbon reserves for export. Despite the dominance of natural gas, nuclear and renewables will grow significantly over our 10-year forecast period, as a strong project pipeline for nuclear reactors and solar power plants begins to go online. Dubai is positioning itself as a major investment destination for international solar power developers - underscored by our broader outlook for strong growth in solar capacity in the UAE. Intense competition when bidding for solar projects, the construction of a solar panel manufacturing facility and an improving regulatory environment provide a blueprint for other countries in the Middle East to follow.
