08 Dec Dubai to Have the World’s Smallest Carbon Footprint
HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s said on LinkedIn that Dubai “will be the city with the world’s smallest carbon footprint”.
The United Arab Emirate launched the world’s largest solar plant, to be accomplished in 2030 with 5000MW. The goal is to provide 25% of Dubai’s energy with clean energy by 2030 and climb to 75% in 2050.
According to HH Maktoum, the project is worth AED $50B. He also added that they have launched an AED $500M Research Fund for Clean Energy & Dubai Green Fund with AED $100B clean energy investments.
Despite having the world’s second-largest oil reserves, the UAE is leading global efforts to diversify energy production and implement diverse strategies and investments in clean and renewable energy.
HH Maktoum said, “Every investment in the development of clean energy sources is at the same time an investment to protect the environment for future generations.”
This is an amazing effort that should be celebrated and replicated.
Although America has made some efforts to improve, why can’t we do more?
