Qatar has one of the fastest growing economies in the world over the past few years

Qatar General Electricity and Water Corporation (Kahramaa) plans to invest QR38bn over the next five years to meet the demands of electricity and water in the country.  Kahramaa announced during its Annual Planning Forum 2017

To meet rising electricity demand, a result of LNG export expansions and economic growth, Qatar continues to invest in its electricity generation capacity. Qatar plans to boost generating capacity from 8.6 gigawatts (GW) in 2015 to 13 GW in 2018 by investing in new generation capacity at  two project expansions.

Energy demand in Qatar has risen significantly, particularly electricity demand. All of Qatar’s current generating capacity is natural gas-fired, although there have been some discussions on potential solar power projects over the past several years.
