Is nuclear energy that important to the Middle East since they are the largest oil producers in the world?

Nuclear Energy is mostly important for the Middle East as many are using nuclear energy to provide electricity for its people. Jordan’s committee for Nuclear Energy implemented the program to provide 30% of electricity in 2030 and has established regional grid connection with Egypt, Syria and tries to increase links with Saudi Arabia, Israel and Palestine. In UAE, the country exports most of its electricity from gas, for which it relies on some imports. Electricity demand is growing by 9% per year and is expected to require 40 GWe of capacity by 2020. It relies entirely on electricity to provide its potable water, by desalination. In Israel, it produces 60 billion kWh gross per year, and has about 14 GWe capacities with little reserve. Thus, Nuclear energy is very important as even though the Middle East has plenty of oil, nuclear energy can pave the way for a new sustainable trend in providing electricity and create new innovations to sustain energy demands and help bring economic stability to the region lately plagued by terrorism.
