The Ministry of Energy and Minerals plans to increase the contribution of renewable energy to the total energy produced in Oman to 30% by 2030.

According to the ministry, Dhofar governorate has several renewable energy projects, including wind and solar energy, that are being implemented by Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) and Rural Areas Electricity Company (Tanweer).  

Oman is also supporting solar energy projects as an important source of renewable energy by implementing 11 hybrid solar energy projects as well as rooftop solar installations in offices and residential buildings.
