Saudi Arabia is curtailing renewable-power targets as the world's biggest oil exporter plans to use more natural gas, backing away from goals set when crude prices were about triple their current level, according to Energy Minister Khalid al-Falih. The kingdom aims to have power generation from renewable resources like the sun make up 10 percent of the energy mix, a reduction from an earlier target of 50 percent, Falih said in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia, which holds the world's second-largest crude reserves, will double natural gas production, according to Falih, and the government will expand the distribution network to the western part of the kingdom.Saudi Arabia is seeking to increase renewable-energy production to 9.5 gigawatts, according to a plan announced in April.
