The global energy landscape is evolving toward cleaner energy sources.
The usage of clean energy sources will grow rapidly as the cost of renewables decrease. Pathways to reduce demand and current CO² levels require an accelerated roll-out coupled with the application of innovative solutions.
To deliver the UAE’s successful transition to clean energy, diversification of power sources, expanding the roll-out of Clean Energy Certificates (CECs), and leveraging Carbon, Capture, Utilisation and Storage (CCUS) will become increasingly critical.
The introduction of CECs enables entities to trade in renewable and nuclear energy certificates in Abu Dhabi. To maintain authenticity and build trust, blockchain technology enables CECs to trace the energy sources and capture transaction data when certificates are traded.
Collaboration will also be key to unlocking a sustainable future. Orchestrated action from the energy and industrial sectors alongside policymakers, regulators and government is needed to deploy renewables at speed and scale, incentivized by long-term stable policies and regulations.
Reverse Osmosis (RO) is more efficient than conventional thermal desalination plants as the technology uses 50% less energy to produce potable water.
