The United Arab Emirates has been known for its remarkable development in the field of infrastructure since its formation. The nation has baffled the world with some impossible feats that the world never thought of.
Now, UAE is eyeing the renewable energy sector to take it to the next level. UAE doesn’t want to be left behind in the clean and renewable energy field which is now the most popular trend in the energy market. UAE is aiming to educate the consumers about its energy resources which they say is essential for people to understand because then their demand for energy will also be bought into perspective. UAE has set a vision to reduce its carbon emissions and go at least 30 to 40 percent on renewable energy by the end of the next decade. In the UAE, the Ministry of Energy and Industry (MoEI) provides an online application that allows consumers to compare their electricity consumption with an average UAE household. No matter how ambitious goals they set they will require partnerships with nations and other private firms in the market of energy to make some notable advances as the trend is relatively new to the nation. UAE has huge potential in the Solar power generation market with its huge desert land and also can utilize more wind and hydroelectric projects to aid the transition to clean and green energy.
UAE will be the model to look up to if UAE completes its transition in record time despite being a petroleum-based economy. With the deliberations amongst government and industry leaders unfold, it is notable that the energy consumer lies at the core of the technology-led sustainable energy transition that is underway today and that is necessary to combat climate change.
