Energy and clean technologies
Over the next twenty years, Dubai's energy demand will continue to grow exponentially. The emirate's population is projected to increase to 5.8 million by 2040.
The cost of solar power generation in Dubai is one of the lowest in the world.
The commissioning of the 5 GW Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park has lowered the benchmark price of solar power on the international market. The fifth phase of the project will see the solar power plant generating electricity at a price of just 1.7 cents per kWh.
Renewable energy and sustainable development are top strategic priorities for Dubai and the UAE. In addition, the UAE utilizes innovative technologies to combat climate change and the effects of global warming, and actively supports the UN's 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.
