H.E. Dr Thani bin Ahmed Al Zeyoudi, UAE Minister of Climate Change and Environment, revealed to Climate Control Middle East that several efforts are being made by the UAE, especially in the energy sector, to combat global warming.

Sharing further details of the initiatives, Dr Al Zeyoudi said that originally, the clean energy target, which was submitted to the Paris Agreement, was 21%, but now, that target has been raised to 27%, which will be achieved by 2021.

The other initiative, he said, was the recently announced concentrated solar power project, at US 7.3 cents per kWh, and the 800MW solar PV project in Dubai, at US 2.99 cents per kWh.
