Due to the present high oil prices, prices fluctuations and their future upward trend, some investments can be now directed to the utilization of solar and other renewable energy systems, such as hydrogen cells and cyclic hydro systems. It is believed that the infrastructure of these systems is particularly feasible through the already large constructions and investments in real estate industry throughout GCC countries. It is also feasible in rural areas such as farms and small villages due to the relatively low power demand and load characteristics. This can also lead to the disintegration, liberalization and privatization of energy systems. The electric energy and power disintegration of such small corporations would save resources, reduce interactions and increase reliability. This paper focuses on suggested new regulations needed to control the utilization of renewable energy systems in rural areas in order to make benefit of high oil prices. It also focuses on the category and types of renewable energy systems that can be implemented in this project.
