Qatar is set to augment its water and power production capacity by enhancing existing infrastructure and launching new projects. According to a 2012-2013 report released by the General Secretariat of the Council of Ministers, Government agencies have signed agreements to meet production and distribution targets of the utilities by 2016. A feasibility study on linking Qatar’s water network with the GCC and a separate study to boost production of the utilities to meet projected demand in 2030 are underway, report said. An agency had been tasked to study the possibility of producing potable water from sea water through reverse osmosis technology and oversee implementation of a model to verify the success of the technique. Another study to generate solar power for the farm sector as part of an agriculture production project launched by Qatar National Food Security Programme and to increase the production capacity to meet water demand in emergency situations are progressing. Qatar’s water and electricity sector is working along with its GCC counterparts to develop a long-term strategy for production of water and its distribution. Qatar Water and Electricity Corporation (Kahramaa) has finished its consulting services with agencies ahead of distributing power to its major subscribers in North Doha, Barwa Village, Barzan and Lussail and at New Doha International Airport.
