UAE moving towards 'net zero world,' says ENEC chief
The Barakah nuclear power plant's fourth unit had the potential to create one million tonnes of hydrogen per year, Mohamed Ibrahim al-Hammadi, chief executive of ENEC, said.
"This low carbon fuel is essential to transition to a net zero world," he said at an energy conference.
The plant in Abu Dhabi, capital of the UAE, is the first nuclear power plant in the Arab world and is part of the Gulf oil producer's efforts to diversify its energy mix.
In October 2021, the United Arab Emirates announced a plan for net-zero emissions by 2050 and said it would oversee 600 billion dirhams ($163 billion) in investment in renewable energy.
