In the Ministry of Energy, we have started to update our strategic plan to keep pace with the aspirations of the Government of the United Arab Emirates, in order to make the Ministry among the best energy ministries locally and globally.
In accordance with the vision and aspirations of our wise leadership towards laying down the foundations and fully considered scientific plans aimed at achieving sustainable development and decent life for citizens and residents in our young nation, the Ministry is working towards enacting suitable laws and legislations to regulate the energy sector, according to the best international practices and criteria. This shall lead to integration between primary and complimentary energy generation sources, which will include renewable energy and nuclear energy. The Ministry is also working to formulate a clear strategy for the petroleum and mineral wealth sector.
Such plans and objectives cannot be realized without the development and qualification of local cadres that have the competence to manage and activate such ambitious plans. These plans also require the consolidation of efforts with our partners in local and international entities, in their respective fields, to achieve the desired objectives.
As to the new specialties of the Ministry, such as the regulation of renewable energy; complimentary energy and rationalization of the use of energy and water, the Ministry shall cooperate with the concerned entities, and work towards making initiatives, to provide the best services and schemes in the UAE and achieve corporate excellence, which the esteemed Council of Ministers has adopted as an approach for development and institutional support.

The Minister of Energy & Industry
