Experimental study of using renewable energy in the rural areas of Oman

This paper shows the Ministry of Water Resources' efforts to exploit the Sultanate's renewable energy. Groundwater from Heelat Ar Rakah camp's well was found unfit for consumption due to high concentrations of fluoride and hydrogen sulphide (H2S) gas. For the first time in Oman, solar power was used to run a reverse osmosis desalination plant to produce fresh water for the camp and a wind turbine was installed to generate electricity in order to run the submersible pump in the camp's well.
