Policymakers should expect that the energy price reform in Saudi Arabia will reduce industrial electricity consumption. However, this reduction will be slight as the price effect is found to be very small.

Lastly, the estimations show that industrial electricity consumption will fully absorb shocks including policy interventions in less than a year.
