The Ministry of Energy and Industry and the Emirates Wildlife Society signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to strengthen joint-cooperation and efforts to achieve the objectives of the National Energy Strategy 2050, and more specifically to achieve the renewable energy target of 44%.

For his part, H.E Dr Matar Hamed Al Neyadi, Undersecretary of the Ministry of Energy and Industry said: "The Ministry of Energy launched at the beginning of this year the National Energy Strategy 2050, which was launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. Through this strategy, the UAE aims to provide 50% clean energy from the energy mix, including 44% of renewable energy and 6% of nuclear power’. H.E confirmed that: “This partnership will contribute to achieving the ambitious goals set by the Government of the UAE to ensure sustainable development for future generations, especially as the WWF has extensive expertise and more experience; and has maintained contacts with various specialists through its multi-national network."
"We are delighted to work with the UAE Ministry of Energy and Industry and are ready to provide support and support to meet the objectives of the National Energy Strategy 2050," said Laila Mustafa Abdul Latif, General Manager of Emirates Wildlife Society. She also added: "Emirates Wildlife will support the Ministry to protect natural resources by providing recommendations and advice. The strategic partnership will also allow us to jointly promote renewable energy options in UAE, address climate change, and air pollution by taking advantage of the rapid development of technology and lower costs, as both are critical to the growth and prosperity of the green economy in the UAE.
