The Impact of Population Dynamics on Housing Demand and Residential Energy Consumption in Saudi Arabia

The Impact of Population Dynamics on Housing Demand and Residential Energy Consumption in Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia has witnessed explosive population growth over the past half century. The Kingdom’s population is expected to continue to grow and generate more housing demand in the coming decades. As the country attempts to curb its fast growing domestic energy consumption, population dynamics will impact the residential building sector and its consequent energy demand. A more energy-efficient residential sector will be increasingly important in helping policymakers manage the country’s growing energy usage.
