Dubai: UAE’s sustainability focus gets full attention at WETEX 2022

Dubai: Sustainability remains front and centre for the UAE, and this was in evidence at the 24th Water, Energy, Technology, and Environment Exhibition (WETEX) and Dubai Solar Show, which opened in Dubai today. Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman of the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy, opened the event. The industry events are in line with the national strategies of the GCC, which focus on diversifying the economies and reducing dependence on oil and gas, and bringing carbon emissions under check to achieve carbon neutrality. Plus, meet the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 2030. "This is part of the framework of the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050 and Dubai Net Zero Carbon Emissions Strategy 2050 to provide 100 per cent of Dubai’s total power capacity from clean energy sources by 2050,” said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD and CEO of DEWA and Chairman of WETEX and DSS in a statement. “We have leading projects in Dubai, most notably the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, the largest single-site solar park in the world, using the IPP model.” The plant will have a production capacity of 5,000 MW by 2030, with a total investment of Dh50 billion.
