As Dubai’s push for nuclear energy gains momentum, the Emirate is intensifying its awareness drive among potential stakeholders and the general public.
Dubai Supreme Council of Energy recently organised a workshop to introduce the National Programme to produce electricity using peaceful nuclear energy. The workshop, organised in collaboration with the Federal Authority for Nuclear Regulation (FANR), promotes nuclear energy and encouraged closer collaboration within the public sector for it.
The workshop was attended by member organisations of the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy, and officials and specialists from organisations, and companies working within energy and renewable energy in Dubai.
HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Vice Chairman of the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy, emphasised the importance of the workshop, organised in cooperation with FANR, to raise awareness about peaceful nuclear energy and its role in generating electricity, and ensuring the readiness of relevant organisations.
“This workshop supports our efforts to achieve the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050 which consists of five main pillars, infrastructure, legislation, funding, building capacities and skills, and an environmentally-friendly energy mix,” said Al Tayer.
“This meeting emphasises the importance of concerted efforts of all federal and local public and private organisations. We work to develop these partnerships, to achieve the UAE Vision 2021, and the Dubai Plan 2021, which have outlined a roadmap that included ambitious initiatives and development projects to provide the best government services and implement the highest international practices to ensure the happiness and satisfaction of people,” said HE Ahmed Buti Al Muhairbi, Secretary General of the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy.
“Our participation in this workshop supports FANR’s strategy and ongoing efforts to educate our partners in the UAE, and raise awareness about FANR’s role, and the nature of its work as an independent government authority charged with the regulation and licensing of all nuclear-related activities in the UAE,” said Christer Viktorsson, Director General of FANR.
