Dubai ruler HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum visited the World Future Energy Summit on Tuesday, which is part of Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week (ADSW) 2020 – the country’s largest sustainable energy event.
Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, vice president, prime minister and ruler of Dubai, toured the event accompanied by HH Lt General Sheikh Saif bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior.
During his tour, Sheikh Mohammed viewed a large-scale green hydrogen project that produces electricity using hydrogen, which will become operational in the first quarter of this year at a trial stage, reported Dubai state news agency Wam.
The project’s production capacity is expected to reach 300 megawatt (MW) hours after the end of its pilot phase.
Sheikh Mohammed praised the significant international participation in the event, which aims to gather global capacities and expertise to ensure a better future through clean energy, said WAM.
He also commended the efforts of HH Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, to host ADSW 2020, which is a prominent international event for both national governments and the private sector.
"The ideas of Mohamed bin Zayed and his aspirations are a turning point for our beloved countries, especially in terms of regional and international humanitarian and sustainable development," he said.
