UAE and UK to explore partnerships in the energy sector


Dubai’s Supreme Council of Energy (SCE) will hold meetings with the UK Ministry of Energy to discuss partnerships between both countries in the energy field.

The UAE has sent a high profile delegation which is being lead by HE Saeed Mohamed Al Tayer, Vice Chairman of The Dubai’s Supreme Council of Energy (SCE).  The delegation also comprises Ali bin Abdullah Al Oweis, Chairman of the Dubai Regulatory and Supervisory Bureau for Water and Electricity, Nejib Zaafrani, Secretary General and CEO of the SCE, Waleed Salman, member of the SCE.

The visit will include meetings with several British departments and officials, including the UK Ministry of Energy and Climate Change, the Mayor of the City of London, the Infrastructure Department of the Ministry of Finance, and representatives from major British companies.

The visit is part of the UAE’s government strategy for 2015 in Dubai; aiming to promote sustainable economic development, and establish relationships and partnerships with the private sector.

A main topic of discussion will be the Hassyan power generation project, the first of its kind to involve the private sector that has drawn the attention of key developers and investors from around the world.

“This visit aims to share views and expertise, in addition to promoting the latest developments and best practices in the field of collaboration and integration between both the private and public sectors, “ said Al Tayer.
Al Tayer stressed the importance of mutual collaboration between the UK and Dubai and highlighted the necessity of establishing long-term partnerships in the related-energy fields; as well as developing them into broader horizons.

SCE hopes that this high profile visit will also help promote initiatives and partnerships in environmental projects, and UK companies can benefit from opportunities provided by Dubai in the field of investments in eco-friendly projects.
