Renewables Readiness Assessment: Oman: Chapter (Figure 13: Electricity supply by system and tariff category, 2011)

POWER CONSUMPTION In all three electricity systems, the residential sector is the largest consumer category, see Figure 13. The rural system, RAECO, has by its very nature only a small share of industrial electricity demand compared to the other two systems. MIS has a smaller share of industrial demand than the Salalah system, although the region covered by the MIS is more heavily industrialised than the rest of the country. However, as noted previously the large and energy intensive industries ...
