UAE strategizes to supply Low Carbon Emission Energy to Japan
Dr. Sultan Al Jaber meeting with Japan delegates regarding the supply capacity for Low Carbon Emission
H. E. Dr. Sultan Al Jaber, a member of the UAE Federal Cabinet, Minister of Industry and Advanced Technology, the UAE Climate Change Special Envoy and Managing Director and Group CEO of the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) went on an official three day trip to Japan to discuss and search for the solutions which will assist in strengthening the energy, economic, and industrial collaboration between UAE and Japan so that it would result in bringing low carbon emission opportunities. This meeting focused to make United Arab Emirates prepare itself to host COP28 in the year 2023.
During his trip to Japan, he meet several Japanese delegates to ensure the development of the hydrogen supply chain between the 2 countries, and discussions were carried out that mainly relied on industrial and economical development, energy supply, hydrogen, and climate action. The names of these government officials were:
- Hagiuda Koichi (Minister of Economy and Minister of Trade & Commerce)
- Tsuyoshi Yamaguchi (Minister of Environment)
- Odawara Kiyoshi (State Minister of Foreign Affairs, Liberal Democratic Party of Japan (LDP) Shinzo Abe (Ex – Prime Minister of Japan)
- Irokazu Matsuno (Chief Cabinet Secretary)
- Kihara Seiji (Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary and Special Advisor to Japan’s Prime Minister)
- Taro Kono (Director of Liberal Democratic Party Public Affairs)
- Nishimura Yasutoshi (Member of the Japanese House of Representatives)
- Tadashi Maeda (Governor of the Japan Bank for International Cooperation)
Dr. Al Jaber’s conversations covered a variety of topics, including the UAE-Japan Comprehensive Strategic Partnership Initiative (CSPI), which was unveiled in 2018 during former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s visit to the UAE. The CSPI strives to strengthen bilateral ties and encourage greater strategic collaboration between the 2 nations across all areas of concern.
Dr. Al Jaber discussed ongoing cooperation initiatives between the UAE and Japan in hydrogen and low-carbon blue ammonia, emphasizing the two countries’ desire to minimize carbon emissions through new commercially viable technology.
Japan now ranks as the tenth-largest and most significant energy and economic partner of the UAE. The UAE is eager to further strengthen its connection across various sectors and expand bilateral ties, through public and commercial collaborations that will generate mutually advantageous growth chances and increase prosperity for both our peoples. It is exciting to take advantage of every aspect of our cooperation, including cutting down environmental issues, in order to promote economic development, low-carbon hike, and energy security (cybersecurity).
Along with Japan, UAE is also building its ties with South Korea to have its strategic investments in businesses as well as the energy sector. They are working together to strengthen their ties in the power and energy industry value chain and to look for hidden opportunities for an energy transition from oil to renewable energy resources. These meetings with other countries would benefit the energy efficiency in UAE to reverse its climate changes and progressively have economic growth for the nation and the people living in Dubai (Dubai: A Sustainable and Smart City to live in). The smart buildings in UAE and the promotion of Electric Vehicles (EV), wind and solar energy, etc. are the leading steps to a sustainable future of the UAE.
Opportunities in the upstream, refineries, and petrochemical sectors of Abu Dhabi as well as in the TA’ZIZ Industrial Chemicals Zone in Ruwais were also discussed at the sessions. The UAE and South Korea may work together very effectively to utilize renewable energy sources and new, economically viable technologies to drive climate action. Rising oil prices have led even the largest oil producing countries to convert into renewable sources of energy. Some of the leading renewable sources of energy had indeed increased the demand for floating wind turbine, hydraulic turbine, wind turbine (history of wind turbines). Also the global energy investments are reported to increase in future.
A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed by KEPCO of South Korea and Masdar, an Abu Dhabi-based renewable energy corporation, to jointly evaluate offshore wind energy investments.
The two businesses will look into the possibility of working together on offshore wind projects and Masdar’s international renewable energy initiatives. Additionally, they will assess potential in energy trading, battery storage technologies, and environmentally friendly hydrogen manufacturing.
