The article reports on a proposal that the Gulf Cooperating Council (GCC) states should consider the use of renewable energy sources and green technologies instead of resisting them. It is argued that such a move would help the GCC states sustain prosperity in the Middle East due to the oil and gas industry boom. According to Vahan Zanoyan, chairman and chief executive officer of FPC Energy International, the region could face an oil shortage from 2013 to 2015.
