UAE'S FUTURE DIRECTION

UAE LEADS THE WAY IN RENEWABLE ENERGY EXPANSION

The UAE, with the second largest Arab economy, will develop a diversified and efficient energy portfolio that will sustain future economic growth and extend the country’s position as a reliable supplier of crude oil to global markets, the country’s Energy Minister has said.

Abu Dhabi and Dubai governments have backed renewable energy despite higher costs currently.  Renewable energy represents a keystone of the UAE strategy to:

  • Build new industries and reduce dependence onfossil fuel revenues
  • Ensure long-term role in the global energy market
  • Enable “green growth”
  • Decarbonize, especially the power sector
  • Engage with leading international partners, e.g. through IRENA
  • Support for additional renewable energy linked to competitiveness with other fuel types
  • Abu Dhabi has set a target of 7% renewable energy electric generation capacity by 2020 (1500 MW) whilst Dubai has set target of 5% renewable energy by 2030
    (1000 MW)
  • Emirate-level governments are creating policy/incentive framework to deliver targets with current projects including
     - 100 MW CSP plant under construction
     - 100 MW PV plant approved
     - 28.8 MW wind plant approved
     - 100 MW waste-to-energy plant announced


THE ROLE OF INTERNAIIONAL EXCHANGE

Increased global dialogue on the cost and benefits of renewable energy is an essential first step especially for developing countries with high financial sensitivity and urgent energy needs.

The Middle East is also looking to taking advantage of its geostrategic position between East and West with particular interest in Asia to boost economic growth,  Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait will want to export more crude oil to Asia, forging closer links with Asia as they respond to the revival of US oil production. The energy-thirsty economies of China and India have become key trade partners for the GCC and wider Middle East, looking to Iran and Iraq for energy opportunities as well.

But, future growth depends on how quickly the GCC countries can diversify and embrace Asia.
