[ClickPress, Tue Jul 19 2016] Kuwait seeks to boost investment in its power sector in order to meet the rising electricity demand and prevent recurring power shortages. The government has earmarked USD9.9bn for infrastructure projects including power, and progress is being made on greenfield thermal and renewable projects. Also, the energy ministry is aiming to double generating and desalination capacity by 2017. Nonetheless, we note that the country has a history of significant project delays, while the private investor involvement in the power sector remains very limited.

Latest Updates And Structural Trends

The country's total net generation is forecast to increase from an estimated 66.1 terawatts (TWh) in 2015 to 98.1TWh in 2025.

We forecast gas fired generation to average 6.5% annual growth over the coming decade, leaving behind oil-fired generation with an average annual expansion rate of 2.3%.

Kuwait's government passed a bill, which introduces individualised charges for electricity and water based on the actual consumption rate. The parliament also approved an amendment allowing to raise power and water rates for non-Kuwaiti citizens.

Kuwait's total electricity consumption was estimated at 56.8TWh in 2015, marking 4% y-o-y growth and we expect this figure to continue rising at a similar pace over the coming decade, lifting the overall consumption figure to around 84.3TWh by 2025.

We expect transmission and distribution (T&D) losses in Kuwait to reach 9.9TWh in 2016 or 14.1% of the total output. Similar T&D losses - ranging between 13% and 14% of the total generation - will be sustained over the coming decade.
