Glasgow, November 4 / WAM / The UAE, represented by the Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure, today announced the roadmap for achieving leadership in the hydrogen sector, a comprehensive national program that supports low-carbon local businesses and contributes to achieving climate neutrality. And strengthening the country’s position as a source of hydrogen, the announcement of the UAE’s strategic initiative to improve future solutions to global climate challenges in an environment that coordinates the directions of intelligent leadership in the United Arab Emirates. For Climate Moderation 2050, this is the first attempt to comply with the Paris Agreement on Climate Change in the Middle East and North Africa.
The Hydrogen Leading Roadmap was announced during the “COP26” of the Global Climate Change Summit in Glasgow, which unites the nations of the world to reduce emissions for the first time since the signing of the Paris Agreement.
Minister of Energy and Infrastructure Suhail bin Mohammed Faraj Faris Al Masroui said: The United Arab Emirates today unveiled the United Arab Emirates Road Map for Hydrogen, which contributes to providing future solutions to the challenges of global climate change. The initiative aims to create an effective ecosystem that will create a new model for encouraging sustainable economic growth. Necessary initiatives and projects implemented by stakeholders in key sectors of the UAE, including energy, economy, industry and infrastructure, transport, waste, agriculture and the environment.
For his part, Dr. Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber, Minister of Industry and Advanced Technology and Special Envoy for Climate Change in the United Arab Emirates, said: “Through the vision and guidance of brilliant leadership, we are working to build capabilities in the clean hydrogen market. , Which is promising and has great potential for growth … and with a blueprint for becoming a leader in the hydrogen industry, the country will be able to implement and benefit from ambitious development projects in all aspects and areas of the clean hydrogen value chain. From the country’s leading position in advanced industries and technologies and low carbon and zero carbon energy.
We hope that this map will effectively contribute to support the United Arab Emirates’ strategic initiative in pursuit of climate neutrality 2050 and promote sustainable economic growth.
For his part, His Excellency Mariam Bint Mohammed Al Muhairi, Minister of Climate Change and Environment, said: “Clean hydrogen is a sustainable fuel for the future and a key tool in the world’s efforts to reduce carbon, and the road map seeks to improve the hydrogen industry with renewable energy investments in renewable energy. Will benefit from.
The roadmap for achieving leadership in the hydrogen industry has three main objectives, which are to open new sources of value creation by exporting low carbon hydrogen and its derivatives and products to major import areas and to improve opportunities for new hydrogen derivatives. Low carbon steel and stable kerosene, in addition to other priority industries.
The UAE seeks to support the low carbon hydrogen industry through five key implementers, a clear regulatory framework supported by policies, incentives, standards and certifications, providing advanced technology through value-added partnerships and an effective national research and development framework. The United Arab Emirates, along with strengthening existing government partnerships and establishing partnerships, will help accelerate the growth of local organization, support infrastructure and land local production, and provide green funding resources.
The United Arab Emirates is moving at a promising pace to achieve global leadership in the low-carbon hydrogen sector as it is currently implementing more than seven ambitious projects, targeting a 25% share of major export markets, including Japan and the South. Korea, Germany and India, targeting other markets, will lead the world in Europe and East Asia in the production of clean hydrogen with competitive advantages over blue and green hydrogen, producing large quantities of hydrogen, including abundant and competitive hydrocarbons. And ammonia production facilities, and offering the world’s most competitive prices on solar PV and absorption capabilities, carbon and large-scale storage, already owned by national oil company ADNOC, ADNOC produces more than 300,000 tons of hydrogen per year, and the company plans to increase hydrogen production to 500,000 tons per year.
