UAE’s energy sector will reach new heights, energy minister says

Suhail bin Mohammed Al Mazrouei, Minister of Energy and Infrastructure, noted that the UAE will continue to forge ahead to ensure the energy sector reaches new heights through collaboration and a steadfast commitment to excellence and leadership.

Al Mazrouei made these comments on the sidelines of a session titled ‘Charting the Future of the UAE’s Energy Sector’, organised by the Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure (MoEI) in cooperation with Shell, WAM reported.

Al Mazrouei said, “The session helped us communicate directly with our stakeholders from across the energy space to create a baseline for future action plans towards a comprehensive sustainable development. It was a timely step, as it coincided with the Year of Sustainability and the UAE’s preparations to host the COP28.” 

The session was also attended by Eng Sharif Al Olama, Undersecretary for Energy and Petroleum Affairs at MoEI, senior officials and experts from federal and local government entities, and representatives of the private sector.

Al Olama said the UAE is seeking to engage its stakeholders at home and abroad in driving the UAE’s ambitious goals for the energy sector, particularly in clean energy, to positively impact the global energy system.
