KAHRAMAA – Qatar General Electricity and Water Corporation

Qatar General Electricity & Water Corporation – KAHRAMAA, was established in July 2000 as a government corporation to regulate and maintain the supply of electricity and water to its customers. In 2002, Qatar Electricity & Water Company (QEWC) and KAHRAMAA have signed an agreement for the sale and transfer of the ownership of the stations owned by KAHRAMAA to the company. Since then, the production of electricity and desalination of water have been outsourced and KAHRAMAA has been focusing solely on their transmission, distribution and delivery to all consumers, as well as undertaking demand forecasting activities.
