The capacity building program is a part of the first edition of the Kuwait Energy Outlook (KEO) which highlights and analyses three main challenges Kuwait is facing in ensuring prosperity for future generations: the need to diversify the country’s oil-dependent economy, stimulate efficient energy usage, and further develop renewable energy sources.

The report makes use of the SEI developed tool, LEAP, a software system for integrated energy planning.

“Going forward, the Kuwait Energy Outlook will play an essential role in increasing collaboration between government entities on energy-related issues and upskilling Kuwait’s energy professionals as we work towards creating a more sustainable Kuwait,” says Dr Samira A S Omar, director general of KISR.
