Escalating renewables up to 10% of the nation’s total energy mix and 25% of total power generation, could make yearly savings of USD 1.9 billion by 2030 via evasion of fossil-fuel deployment and lower energy rates. With health and environmental benefits factored in, the transition to renewables could generate additional net annual savings of USD 1 billion to as much as USD 3.7 billion by 2030.

This account is a combined endeavor of the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), the UAE-based Masdar Institute, and the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ Directorate of Energy and Climate Change.

Since 2010, increasing natural gas rates in the UAE have merged with quickly falling technology rates for solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, specifically. This has created renewables a viable selection for power generation in the UAE; an oil exporter, thus gradually more an importer of natural gas. Wind power and waste-to-energy adaptation have also turned out to be profitable with natural gas values beyond USD 8 per million British thermal units (mBtu). These current advancements generate financial explanations for the nation to go faster its renewable energy consumption further than the present objectives in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and other emirates.

To reach such quick scale-up, government entities must be authorized to acquire comprehensive, proportional outlooks of energy rates and to follow through on such outlooks in power-sector regulation and tendering.
