Oil and gas will continue to remain a significant part of oil-producing countries’ energy mix. The need for energy grows every year. With that, this will ensure global energy security in line with the green shift in mind as experts say.
The UAE was seeing record growth in renewables. This is what Sultan Al Jaber said. He is the United Arab Emirates’ special envoy for climate change and minister of industry and advanced technology
But while wind and solar accounted for most of the new power generation capacity last year, he said this still only comprises 4 percent of today’s energy mix.
“A successful energy transition must progress with economic and climate action in tandem. As part of this, we know we must do more now to reduce the impact of oil and gas on the climate,” he said.
