The United Arab Emirates has been working on making its economy renewable energy-based one and it has a long road to cover since it has always been a fossil petroleum-based economy for the major part of its existence as a nation.
UAE has made some amazing progress in the infrastructure and construction fields by building some of the most amazing structures mankind has ever made of witnessed. Truly amazing what this Bedouin nation has achieved despite its limitations even by nature. Now the nation is eyeing the energy field to excel at. With the 24th Energy Congress held this year in UAE the nation has made some amazing alliances with nations as well as the private institutions to advance in the energy research. The UAE has participated in the second Hydrogen Energy Ministerial Meeting in Tokyo, Japan. The meeting, which concluded on Wednesday, saw discussions surrounding participating countries’ efforts in the production and use of hydrogen and enhancing its role in the mix of global energy sources. Hydrogen production from natural gas is the cheapest source of hydrogen, which can also be produced from nuclear and renewable energy.
The UAE delegation was led by Dr. Matar Hamed Al Neyadi, Under-Secretary of the Ministry of Energy and Industry. It included representatives from the Abu Dhabi Department of Energy and Abu Dhabi National Oil Company. Representatives of 30 countries and four international organizations concerned with energy affairs also took part in the meeting. UAE is all set, and the world should prepare for its entry in the global energy market.
