“The Emirati government is working to keep pace with the increased demand on energy through its reliance on natural gas, clean and renewable energy resources as well as the construction of many new high-efficiency and environment friendly power plants,” al-Mazrouei said.
The minister added that in 2017 the UAE launched its 2050 energy strategy, “that is considered to be the first unified energy plan in the country that balances between production and consumption and between global environmental commitments,” in a manner that ensures an appropriate economic environment that stimulates growth across all sectors.
