Abstract

The chapter focuses on the impact of solar energy adoption on natural gas (NG) trade and CO2 emissions in Qatar. First, we forecast electricity production to estimate the NG needed for power generation in Qatar through the next 11 years. The ensuing NG estimates are then used with national targets of solar PV adoption to evaluate NG savings 11 years forward. We conclude with an analysis of how these NG savings could spawn additional NG trade, and estimate the resulting CO2 emission reductions in Qatar and the NG-importing countries. According to our projections, Qatar’s top PV penetration targets by 2024/2030 would yield an NG surplus of 2.13 Mtoe, and CO2 emissions reductions of 8.3 Mt in Qatar and 3.8-1.7 Mt in the importing countries.
