The UAE’s new energy strategy is set to save up to Dh700 billion ($190 billion) by 2050, said a senior government official.
Suhail bin Mohammed Faraj Faris Al Mazrouei, Minister of Energy made the statements in an inaugural word published as part of the ministry's Energy 2017 Report on the best practices of the UAE and all energy-related agencies.
He added that the UAE 2050 strategy "adopts 50 per cent of the sources of power generation as green sources, and the UAE will be one of the first countries in the world in the reduction of consumption and culture of conservation."
The report reviews the country's efforts to diversify sources of energy and develop efficient solutions to rationalise energy consumption in line with the UAE Vision 2021 on lowering carbon emissions in unison with international efforts made in this respect, said the minster.
