Water, power to consume 25% of oil – Need for alternative energy

KUWAIT CITY, Dec 30: Electricity and water consumption will eat up 25 percent of Kuwait’s oil production by 2030, reports Al-Rai daily quoting a source from Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research (KISR).

The source made the statement in the midst of controversies regarding the alleged plan to reduce subsidies and rationalize public spending. He warned against the country’s continuous use of fuel in producing electricity and water.

He stressed the need to find alternative sources of energy such as solar panels for generating clean electricity for State institutions, streets and houses to meet power and water heater needs. He added it is now time to look into the possibility of using good nuclear energy; urging all public institutions to follow the latest developments in the construction field like using materials that absorb low energy, in addition to judicious consumption of electricity and water.
