Dubai will increase the share of renewable energy to 14% by the end of 2022 as part of the efforts to meet its sustainable development goals.

Currently, the share of renewable energy in Dubai's energy mix is 11.5%, Saeed Al Thayer, managing director and chief executive of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA), told.

“We will continue to implement pioneering projects to diversify Dubai’s clean and renewable energy sources to include all available technologies in Dubai ... for a brighter and more sustainable future for generations to come,” Mr Al Tayer said.

As part of its clean energy goal, Dubai aims to produce 25% of its energy from renewable sources by 2030 and 100% by 2050

DEWA is building the world's largest desert solar park in Dubai to reduce dependence on natural gas and diversify energy sources. Dewa said that its total power generation capacity has reached 14.11 gigawatts, of which 1.62 gigawatts were renewable energy sources, after adding 700 megawatts of capacity, Wam reported.

Dubai is leading the way in the production of new fuels, such as green and blue hydrogen, as it seeks to tap the growing market for low-carbon fuels.
