ABU DHABI, The UAE Energy Strategy 2050 is an important step to ensure future energy security, being the backbone of all economic and developmental activities, said Dr. Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber, Minister of State.

The announcement of this ambitious plan is an incentive for all stakeholders in the public and private sectors to redouble their efforts and work to implement the vision of the UAE’s wise leadership regarding the long-term plan, which will ensure the interests of present and future generations, he added.

“I congratulate our brothers at the Ministry of Energy on declaring this strategy, which constitutes a roadmap with clear goals and milestones. It specifies the energy mix components and includes both clean energy and gas, which is cleaner hydrocarbon fuel, clean coal and peaceful nuclear energy,” Al Jaber said.

This reflects a focus on sustainability to ensure continuation of major boom in the UAE in all areas of energy supply. The energy strategy provides a comprehensive umbrella for growth and development in the energy sector, he added.

The UAE Minister explained that the UAE has state-of-the-art infrastructure to implement the new strategy as it has already started to develop capacities across all energy segments, including renewable, conventional and nuclear energy.

As a result, the country has acquired rich experiences and expertise in terms of capable human resources in the field of technology to manage production and ensure most efficient usage of energy, he said.
