The UAE leads the world in the amount of clean electricity per capita

Minister of Energy and Infrastructure Suhail Al Mazrouei said that the UAE leads the world in the amount of clean electricity per capita that has been added to the network during the past five years, and that the cost of producing clean energy in the country is one of the lowest global rates.

He added in his opening speech at the “Nuclear Energy Summit for Climate Neutrality,” which will be held in Dubai on the 7th and 8th of this December, on the sidelines of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP28), that “the nuclear energy industry has become competitive and prices are rising.” Its way down.”

Al Mazrouei stressed the important role of nuclear energy in the process of transition to clean energy sources in the UAE, highlighting the fact that the Barakah nuclear power plants play an essential role in the process of reducing the carbon footprint of the energy sector and providing sustainable energy in the country.

For his part, Managing Director and CEO of the Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation, Mohammed Al Hammadi, said, “The UAE has become a member of the peaceful nuclear energy race, and agreed last week with 22 countries to triple nuclear energy production until the year 2050, while work will be done during the coming period on how to Achieving this goal.

Al Hammadi added, “The development of the four Barakah nuclear power plants, all of which are now operational, is a major step in the UAE’s transition to clean energy sources, as it is one of the largest nuclear power plants in the world, and the largest single source of carbon-free electricity in the region.”

He continued: “The abundant and clean electricity produced by the Barakah plants, in addition to the knowledge, experience and technology gained from developing the plants, supports innovation in advanced nuclear energy technologies, including the development of mini-modular reactors.”

Al Hammadi said: “The Nuclear Energy Summit for Climate Neutrality, on the sidelines of (COP28), provides an ideal platform to discuss the demand for electricity and how to meet this demand so that we can collectively continue to reduce the carbon footprint of heavy sectors by producing larger quantities of clean electricity. “The pursuit of developing advanced nuclear energy technologies has become one of the world’s strategic priorities, and the countries that take the initiative to do so will have the most important role in ensuring energy security and sustainability.”

Al Hammadi highlighted the progress achieved by the “Advanced Program for Nuclear Energy Technologies,” which was recently launched by the Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation, which is a new platform designed to keep pace with the latest developments in nuclear energy technologies. The program contributes to strengthening the UAE’s leadership position in developing climate solutions by accelerating the global transition to clean energy sources.

It is noteworthy that the UAE has added more amounts of clean electricity per capita over the past five years than any other country, 75% of which was produced from nuclear energy, making it the ideal destination to host the “Nuclear Energy Summit for Climate Neutrality.”

The main topic of the “Nuclear Energy Summit for Climate Neutrality” focused on the growing need for new nuclear energy technologies to support basic economic sectors, as the summit stressed that the transition to these technologies must be done in an environmentally friendly manner, with the aim of contributing to the world’s march towards climate neutrality.
