  • 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
