Abstract

A market reform implemented in Oman in 2004 changed the electricity sector from being a vertically integrated system owned and operated by the Ministry of Housing, Electricity, and Water to a new unbundled system populated by a range of companies and an independent regulator. The restructuring has supported a more than doubling of supplied energy in the succeeding decade, but in a manner that is unsustainable due to high subsidies and lack of supply mix diversity.
