Bahrain launches national programme to increase energy efficiency by 2040

The Bahraini Electricity and Water Authority (EWA) has launched a national programme in collaboration with Energy Service Companies (ESCOs), to increase the efficiency of energy consumption in private and public sector buildings. The Kafa’a aims to save electricity consumption by around 975 GWh and reduce carbon emissions by about 488 kt by 2040, contributing to flattening energy use during peak hours by mitigating the need for additional generation capacity. EWA should begin the tendering process for ESCOs to audit the energy consumption of selected buildings, through the systemic upgrading the energy efficiency in the buildings and monitoring the impact observed, providing financing solutions to public sector customers. 

In 2022, Bahrain registered a total final electricity consumption of 31.9 TWh, of which the industry sector accounted for 17 TWh (54%), the residential sector for 8.8 TWh (28%), and the services sector for 5.8 TWh (18%). All of Bahrain’s power generation comes from gas. The country aims to achieve net-zero emissions by 2060.
