  • World Future Energy Summit has sourced this news from The National. Electricity tariffs in Abu Dhabi need to rise by more than two-thirds before investment in solar power becomes economically viable for businesses and homeowners as an alternative source of power to help reduce their bills. This month, the Abu Dhabi Distribution Company announced new power and water tariffs for the emirate, with bills set to rise at the start of next year by more than 30 per cent for some users. To cut the cost of electricity, other sources of power could be considered. The UAE has large solar parks in operation or under construction, but smaller installations are still not yet feasible to help reduce the rising cost of electricity in Abu Dhabi. Read more

  • The ratification of the Paris Climate Agreement during 2016 has been a significant step in the world’s efforts to reduce greenhouse gases emissions. It is important for governments and major businesses to work out how they change their practices and culture to meet the requirements. Companies should certainly view any changes as a major business opportunity, not just from the positive press that they can generate, but because long-term they can also reduce their operating costs. It is important that businesses take a long-term view of changing their practices, not just look at the short-term costs, although that is a tough ask in the current economic climate.
