Qatar’s energy sector has always been ahead with regard to the local water and electricity demand, with many new plans that aim to meet the future needs of the country, senior electrical engineer Mohamed Riaz told Qatar Urdu Radio’s live show Haqeeqat yesterday.
“The government of Qatar in co-ordination with Qatar General Electricity and Water Corporation (Kahramaa) has always pursued a self-reliant policy whereby new projects are added to meet the growing needs of utilities in the country,” he explained.
Riaz spoke on the electricity generation industry under the existing circumstances and gave details on various new projects. “Qatar currently has enough reserves to meet power and water needs for the next five years. It is also working ambitiously on renewable energy such as solar energy that will soon start generating electricity in Qatar,” Riaz added.
Haqeeqat, which aims to engage and interact with the large South Asian expatriate community in Qatar, is a joint venture of Gulf Times and Qatar Media Corporation Urdu Radio. It is broadcast from Sunday to Thursday on FM107. The show is hosted by Saif-ur-Rehman.
