The Arab world has the largest oil reserves in the world; Hadhramaut, to date, has the largest oil reserves in Yemen. But, oil can not be replaced. It depletes, and with time - Hadhramawt will have no more oil or gas to exploit. With time, oil will become more and more expensive and when a time comes when all the required oil has to be imported - how many will then be able to afford it to power the mainly, cheap Chinese made generators? But, Hadhramaut like the rest of the Middle East, has abundant sunshine which can be exploited. Solar power: is renewable and can not be depleted; is clean; does not pollute; does not emit greenhouse gases and as it does not spill, it is not a danger to the environment; solar cells and its components, unlike generators, require little maintenance and they last very long; solar power panels can, easily, be used in even the remotest of places.
All that is required for solar power harnessing is the will, the initiative and what Hadhramout has - plentiful and constant supply of: sunshine. Why not use it? Why not take the example of Masdar City of using solar power and consuming so little energy that local resources will satisfy requirements cheaply and without generating net emissions?
