Efforts towards sustainabilityIn the past few years, the UAE has come a long way in meeting the challenges of energy and climate change, under the framework of Vision 2021 and the strategic plans of each emirate. The UAE has built the enablers which correspond to the sustainable development goals (SDGs) set out by the United Nations for 2030. In addition, the UAE committed more than USD 840 million (AED 3.1 billion) to renewable energy in more than 30 countries.
Plans and initiatives for sustainable infrastructureAdvanced energy-efficient desalination pilot projectIn 2013, Masdar announced thewhich aims to develop and demonstrate seawater desalination technologies efficient enough to be powered by renewable energy.
Dubai Integrated Energy Strategy 2030As a part of its policy to use alternative energy sources, Dubai developed theDubai Integrated Energy Strategy 2030to drive energy decarbonisation and ensure efficient use of energy. The emirate sets plans to generate at least 5 per cent of its power from renewable energy by 2030, as well as 12 per cent from clean coal and 12 per cent from nuclear power. In January 2015, Dubai announced a revision of its targets for the share of renewable energy in the total energy mix to 7 per cent by 2020 and 15 per cent by 2030.
Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050Further development was thewhich aims to produce 75 per cent of Dubai's energy from clean sources by 2050. UAE Energy Strategy 2050In 2017, the UAE launched ‘Energy Strategy 2050’, which is considered the first unified energy strategy in the country that is based on supply and demand.
The strategy aims to increase the contribution of clean energy in the total energy mix from 25 per cent to 50 per cent by 2050 and reduce carbon footprint of power generation by 70 percent, thus saving AED 700 billion by 2050. It also seeks to increase consumption efficiency of individuals and corporates by 40 per cent.
The strategy targets an energy mix that combines renewable, nuclear and clean energy sources to meet the UAE’s economic requirements and environmental goals as follows:44 per cent clean energy38 per cent gas12 per cent clean coal6 per cent nuclear.اقرأ أكثر: حكومة الامارات الذكية »
