Abu Dhabi outlines energy conservation strategy
Abu Dhabi, May 26, 2013
Abu Dhabi's need for fuel will be met by a more diversified mix of gas, nuclear energy, renewable energy and liquefied natural gas, said a report by Abu Dhabi’s Regulation and Supervision Bureau.
The 'Vision 2030' report focuses on the future of the sector and detailing potential changes and trends.
It describes how water and electricity is likey to be supplied in Abu Dhabi between now and 2030. As water demand rises, increased efficiency and greater use of recycled water is key, said the bureau in its report.
The 21-page document outlines its long-term views on water, waste water, and the electricity sector that will evolve to support the government's economic vision and urban plans for the emirate, and possible solutions to ensure the safe and reliable supply of the same, leading up to 2030.
It is vital that we all work together to use water and electricity more efficiently. We all have a role to play, said Nicholas Carter, the director general of the Bureau.
"Earlier this year, we launched the Waterwise and Powerwise offices, both of whom are tasked with actively supporting Abu Dhabi in implementing changes that encourage more sustainable behaviour and benefit us all," he added.- TradeArabia News Service
