COP28 site being powered by renewables is significant: Dr Al Jaber

, November 22, 2023

The accomplishment of Expo City Dubai, the location of COP28, being powered by renewable energy produced in the UAE was hailed by Dr Sultan Al Jaber, UAE Minister of Industry and Advanced Technology, Chairman of Masdar, and COP28 President-Designate. 
Dr Al Jaber commented: "It is a significant accomplishment that Expo City Dubai, the site of COP28, will be powered by renewable energy produced here in the UAE, made possible by the world-class scale and ambition of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, with key phases developed by Masdar.
The solar powered electricity to be used at Expo City Dubai has been accredited through the International Renewable Energy Certificates (I-REC) scheme.
It is a tangible demonstration of our climate action leadership and another step forward in decarbonisation at home and abroad, as we call on the world to triple renewable energy capacity and double energy efficiency by 2030 to keep the ambition of 1.5 deg within reach."
The 2023 Conference of the Parties of the UNFCCC (COP28) will be held in Dubai, UAE  from November 30 to December 12. It will bring together 198 states and parties to address the global threat posed by climate change. --OGN/TradeArabia News Service
