Utilities

Introduction:

The Saudi Energy Efficiency Center (SEEC) Utilities team was formed on the third quarter of 2018 to study the Energy Efficiency of Power Generation, Water Desalination, and Electricity Transmission & Distribution (T&D). The objective is to develop and implement a comprehensive framework to improve the fuel utilization in the Kingdom’s utilities sector. SEEC utilities team is working closely with the relevant entities and stakeholders to unify all efforts.

 

Activities:

•Identify the stakeholders or related entities

•Engage utility eco-system including utility companies and technology providers

•Identify and select relevant Energy Efficiency (EE) KPI(s) for each sub-sector

•Establish the Energy Efficiency (EE) baseline in the Kingdom

•Conduct local and global benchmarking studies to identify opportunities to improve Energy Efficiency (EE) in the Kingdom

•Develop a comprehensive framework to improve Energy Efficiency (EE) in the utilities sector

 

Preliminary view on the Kingdom’s utilities sector:

This sector is one of the most fuel-consuming sectors in the Kingdom, where the fuel Consumption for Electricity and Seawater Desalination Industries were 4230 MMBTU/Year In 2017.(Source: ECRA Annual Statistical Booklet for Electricity and Seawater Desalination Industries)
