Abstract The study attempts to investigate the impact of Climatic factors on the present and future energy demand/supply in the State of Qatar. The effects of climatic parameters such as temperature, humidity and wind on electric energy consumption and the contamination of its distribution systems were analysed. The possibilities of using solar insulation and wind to generate power were also discussed. It was found that daily and seasonal temperature distribution greatly affect electric energy supply, and that maintenance cost is high due to the pollution caused by the weather elements. The potential use of renewable solar energy and wind power in the State of Qatar is great given that reliable and cost effective systems are developed. en
