Renewable energy, green economy will lead UAE to 'green recovery'

ABU DHABI, July 27, 2020

Renewable energy and green economy are the two main driving forces that will lead the UAE to sustainable and green recovery, a senior official told Emirates News Agency, WAM.
"The UAE leadership is committed to using the current situation as an opportunity to reinforce the country’s development plans and raise its climate ambitions," remarked Engineer Fahed Al Hammadi, Acting Assistant Undersecretary for the Green Development and Climate Change Sector at the Ministry of Climate Change and Environment.
"I see renewable energy and the green economy as the two main driving forces of our efforts," he told WAM in an interview.
"During my engagements across multiple online platforms over the past few months and in discussions with my colleagues from around the world, I have found out that many countries share our desire for a sustainable and green recovery," Al Hammadi added.
Accoring to him, the UAE remains dedicated to meeting the goals of the National Climate Change Plan of the UAE 2017-2050, and is on track in its climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts.
"On the global level, we also actively participate in climate negotiations and support the deployment of renewable energy solutions. To date, we have invested in renewable energy ventures across 70 countries that have a total value of over $16.8 billion," said the senior official.
Accelerating renewables deployment brings substantial economic, health, and environmental benefits, he added.
