The research shows that Qatar’s power and water intake have increased constantly over the previous years, driven by many individuals staying and working in the Nation, rising manufacturing and service segments, and largely advanced per capita intake. According to a superior partner at Roland Berger named Fabian Engels mentioned that currently, the moderate yearly electricity intake per capita is almost 16,000Kwh plus the regular water consumption is almost 625 litres. Furthermore, he stated that all records are among the uppermost in the globe and are way above other Nations. To accommodate the increasing demand, Qatar is spending heavily in the energy space. Consequently, the federal government forces citizens and companies to follow a more sustainable method to limited resources like water and power.

In 2012 the Kahramaa, initiated in 2000 to control and maintain water and electricity production for Qatar’s Citizens, started the Tarsheed project to increase knowledge of power efficiency and savings. Qatar’s Federal Development plan till 2022 shows the objective of recognizing an average of 8% decrease in electricity intake and a 15% decrease in water intake per capita, combined with a wide-scale transfer to additional renewable energy sources. Engels added that they anticipate an enhanced technology change in energy and water production, from gas-based and wind-based energy generation systems. Furthermore, he declared that power efficiency determinations would rise to preserve electricity and water.  

In a holistic view, according to Jorg Klasen, who is prominent at Roland Berger, He mentioned that the power shift in the Nation would touch on the whole system and need comprehensive methods and holistic method of brainstorming. Therefore, it will immediately need the system to be prepared to shift renewable energies in the channel and transmission grids. Klasen stated that the freshly designed PV and Wind would raise the shifting tons into the grid, and extra measures will be needed to support the structure’s frequency. Moreover, he mentioned that, to a particular extent, it would be controlled by current conventional power plants.

Ronald Beger mentioned that technology would enable the process to move swiftly. Furthermore, he added that digitization has the chance to change the way power is created, channelled, stored, and used. Some of the cases in Qatar involve intelligent power intake, distant monitoring and energy forecast for renewable energies. The Internet of Things can assist in fair assessment and grid management. Klasen said that information from the Internet of Things appliances connected in a system could be utilized to enhance real-time assessment and active grid technology in the distribution and channelling systems.
