Abu Dhabi hosted Future Energy Summit last week. Summit displayed the whole universe systems and required technologies for the post-carbon world. Near about 100 solar equipment provider participated and displayed their wares. also, utilities and organisations involved in wind, hydro, nuclear, biofuels for carbon capture and energy storage.
The current energy situation in the UAE is similar to what is occurring now in the renewables energy sector in many countries. The Emirate of Abu Dhabi and neighbouring Dubai with nearly 1.5 and 3.2 million population respectively has developed solar power very aggressively during the past decade. but renewable energy provided just 2% of the countries electrical capacity at the end of 2018, its share will be rising quickly.
Last year, start-up of Noor Abu Dhabi Plant with 1.7GW and 3.2 million solar panels installed across an 8 square kilometre site at Sweihan in Abu Dhabi. Dubai now planned to produce 5GW power by 2030. These projects have set records for their large scale and have attracted some of the worlds most competitive bid prices from developers. Now Abu Dhabi will add even more carbon-free power with its Barakah nuclear power plant in next year.
Together this will make a strong start towards the country's goal of clean energy. Based on these goals, the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) forecasts that UAE will generate 30GW of renewable energy by 2030 and 44GW by 2050.
