Our role

The Public Authority for Electricity and Water is responsible for distributing potable water to all the people in Oman, except for Sohar City and the Dhofar Governorate.  

As part of this role, PAEW ensures high quality water services while protecting the water resource by reducing water losses and wastage.

PAEW is involved in a large capital delivery program to reach 90% of the population of Oman connected to the water network by 2035.

While electricity production and distribution are managed by electricity companies, PAEW is involved in policy making for the energy sector and manages innovative renewable energy projects.
