UAE is implementing clean and renewable energy projects as a strategy to combat climate change and has taken early steps towards utilising these types of energy, most notably solar energy, to meet most of its energy needs, to achieve sustainable development and conserve the environment.

The UAE is preparing to bid farewell to the last drop of oil and achieve a balance between economic development and preserving a clean, healthy and safe environment, reinforcing its global leadership in adopting clean energy technologies, most notably solar energy, through a portfolio of power stations, including the Noor Abu Dhabi Solar Power Plant, the Shams Solar Power Station in Abu Dhabi, and the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park in Dubai, which rely on the country’s sunny climate throughout the year.

Hosting the 28th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP28) in November will enable the UAE to create an interactive global platform for showcasing its efforts towards transitioning to renewable energy, especially solar energy. The UAE plans to harness renewable resources to meet some 50 percent of its energy needs by 2050.
