  • GCC switches on clean power

    28-Feb-2017 by: Rohma Sadaqat

    World Future Energy Summit has sourced this news from Khaleej Times. Renewable energy is not just a buzzword in the GCC anymore, and the countries that have a concrete plan to invest in clean energy and meet their targets in that segment have a lot to gain. The shift away from fossil fuels and towards clean and renewable energy has the potential for the GCC to reap savings of up to $87 billion, a recent report by Orient Planet Research has found. Entitled Clean Energy in the GCC, the report highlights that in addition to monetary savings, and fossil fuel savings, the switch to more renewable forms of energy will also result in the reduction of up to one gigaton of carbon emissions by 2030, and the creation of countless jobs across the region. The report also revealed that achieving the renewable energy plans for the region's electricity sectors, could result in an overall savings of $55-$87 billion, depending on oil and gas prices. Carbon emissions could also be reduced, leading to an eight per cent cut in the region's per capita carbon footprint.

  • World Future Energy Summit has sourced this news from Arabian Business. There is no doubt that 2016 was a milestone year for utility-scale solar in the Middle East. The UAE set - and then reset - the benchmark for low-cost solar electricity; Saudi Arabia made its highest level commitment to investing in solar; and Jordan commissioned its largest utility-scale solar power plant and announced plans to tender a new round of projects. In fact, these three countries alone account for over 2 gigawatts (GW) of projects at stages ranging from operational to those out to tender.

  • World Future Energy Summit has sourced this news from Gulf News. The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) on Monday inaugurated one of Dubai’s largest private rooftop solar installations on ABB’s corporate office that can produce clean energy enough to power up to 50 households a year. The ABB’s office in Al Qouz has been generating solar energy for the past month as part of the Shams Dubai initiative, which encourages households to harness the sun’s power through rooftop solar panels. Some 1,213 solar panels sprawled on its 4,000 square metre rooftop produce 497,000 kWh per year.

  • World Future Energy Summit has sourced this news from Khaleej Times. The UAE capital could see the first hyperloop transportation taking effect by 2021, which will change the future of transportation, as a journey from Abu Dhabi to Al Ain could take as little as nine minutes. During a press conference in Abu Dhabi, the Office of Shaikh Falah bin Zayed Al Nahyan announced that a partnership agreement was signed with Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT) to link the two cities via hyperloop technology. The partnership will allow HTT to accelerate the pace of the project, which follows the study agreement signed between HTT and DMAT in November 2016. Once the Federal Transport Authority (FTA) and DMAT have given approval, the project would begin in as little as 38 months.
