Energy and Infrastructure Minister Suhail al-Masroui said that in the light of the fact that future energy will not be cheap and that it will cost more to switch to clean energy and reduce dependence on conventional fuels, there should be transparency in telling consumers about it. The United Arab Emirates has set a target within its strategic plan.
A key character
Al Mazrouei added during a panel discussion yesterday at the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC 2021) that hydrogen will play a key role in future energy, in light of global industry change. “Even though the market is still small, we are all discussing how to expand hydrogen projects,” he said.
There are many challenges in using hydrogen as an energy source, including the high technology used, which is five times more expensive than conventional fuel, in addition to the cost of transportation, transportation and storage, Al Masrooy explained. On the ground.

“Many countries need investments and funding for energy projects,” he pointed out.
Honeywell: The epidemic has accelerated the transition to technology
Hisham Tashkandi, Managing Vice President and General Manager, Honeywell, Performance Products and Technologies, Middle East, said the company is currently focusing on providing clean energy, especially technologies that support the transition towards blue hydrogen.
