The Prospects for Coal-fired Power Generation in Saudi Arabia

Axel Pierru () and Walid Matar ()

Discussion Papers from King Abdullah Petroleum Studies and Research Center

Abstract: Almost all of Saudi Arabia’s electric power generation is fueled by oil and gas. Plans for future capacity envisage nuclear and renewables supplementing this mix and freeing up oil for other revenue-generating opportunities. Coal-fired generation has been promoted in some Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries but not, so far, in the Kingdom.
