During the recently concluded COP28 conference in Dubai, the Department of Energy revealed the Abu Dhabi Energy Outlook 2050, outlining the emirate’s roadmap toward achieving net-zero emissions. 

The country gets closer to its sustainable future through a newly announced partnership between Abu Dhabi’s Department of Economic Development (ADDED) and Siemens Energy.

This strategic partnership aims to slash carbon emissions and revitalize the local manufacturing sector. 

“This collaboration reflects a shared commitment to sustainable development and underscores how Abu Dhabi is leading the way in adopting global innovative solutions for a low-carbon future,” said Arafat Al Yafei, executive director of the IDB.

Siemens Energy will guide Abu Dhabi through decarbonization solutions. This includes fostering homegrown innovation by aiding in developing and disseminating carbon removal technologies through its collaboration with the Industrial Development Bureau (IDB).

Siemens Energy will also dedicate its expertise to waste heat recovery, electrification solutions, and grid modernization. This localized approach aligns perfectly with the Abu Dhabi Industrial Strategy, a roadmap for economic diversification and global competitiveness. 

“Together with the Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development, we will pursue our shared vision and mutual goal of developing a global, sustainable, innovative, industrial hub centered on human capital development,” said Khalid bin Hadi, UAE managing director at Siemens Energy.
