Brief Introduction

KAPSARC was founded as a non-profit global institution for independent research into the economics of energy, to contribute to societal wellbeing and prosperity.

From the base in one of the world’s most important energy-producing regions, KAPSARC develops economic frameworks to reduce the overall costs and environmental impacts of energy supply, increase the value created from energy consumption and achieve effective alignment between energy policy objectives and outcomes.

KAPSARC studies topics of global importance – with a particular focus on the Middle East, China, India and East Africa – both in terms of the impacts of policies on their own societies and the spillovers to interconnected global markets.

Nadhmi Al-Nasr is the president of KAPSARC.
