UAE Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Goals 


The Emirates have made a lot of progress towards their aggressive renewable energy and sustainability goals. By 2050, the UAE aims to produce 50% of its energy from clean sources, divided between 44% renewable energy and 6% nuclear. But 2020 has been a difficult year for everyone, and the UAE is contending with low-oil prices, deploying renewables during the pandemic, and changing electricity patterns, just to name a few key challenges.

In this webinar, a panel of experts will analyze the outlook for solar energy in the UAE. They will discuss:

· Status of large-scale renewable energy projects in the UAE 

· Impact of covid and post covid on renewables energy market in UAE

· Scaling up investments / Financing portfolios of Solar PV Assets in Dubai

· Status of distributed solar projects in the UAE 

· Impact of new technologies including Big Data, AI and automation on asset management and utilization as well as LCOE.

· The role of cutting-edge technologies, such as floating solar, artificial intelligence and green buildings, in furthering the UAE’s energy goals
