How gas could solve Lebanon’s electricity crisis and power its future

Lebanon has been defined by instability for decades, but one thing remains constant. Every day, without fail, the electricity cuts. In the country’s capital city, Beirut, the electricity cuts for around three hours a day, but in other areas, residents face more than 12 hours of power outages per day. To cope, the average Lebanese household relies on a personal diesel-fuelled generator at a cost of around $1,300 per year, or 15% of income per capita, according to a 2017 report by the World Bank.

Initials aside, tales of a suburban family befriending a stranded extra-terrestrial seem like a far cry from the current pressing and very real challenge of reducing our reliance on fossil fuels as an energy source.

Despite the global push towards sustainability and renewable energy, oil is still an incredibly important part of the region’s economy. Yet despite this, the level of “disruption” and engagement with startups in this vast sector has been limited when compared to sectors like retail or food and beverage (F&B). This is mainly due to how heavily regulated the sector is, the high levels of sensitivity of industrial information coupled with increasing restrictions on data-sharing. This

In the East Med we have been side-tracked by the fallacious promise or expectation of riches to come out of exploiting the newly discovered hydrocarbon resources. We can rediscover our common interests only after a reality check on the actual potential of these resources. As long as politicians and people in the region believe that – despite their massive cuts in spending and the massive pressure on them due to climate change – the international oil companies will just come, develop and export these resources, making everybody rich in the process, common interests disappear and disputes and conflict become the
