Suhail bin Mohammed Faraj Faris Al Mazrouei, UAE Minister of Energy, and Rainer Baake, German State Secretary at the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy, ywsterday signed a joint Declaration of Intent on cooperation in the fields of energy between the two countries.

The official signing took place during the World Future Energy Summit in Abu Dhabi, and was followed by the first meeting of the High Level Steering Group which adopted a work programme for the first year of the Energy Partnership.

The declaration covers scientific exchange, governmental and expert workshops, industry meetings and mutual delegation visits. To strengthen cooperation in the energy sector between the two countries, Germany and the UAE will cooperate on issues such as frameworks for renewable energy technologies, energy efficiency, the development of the electricity market and research and development.

Also today, a public expert and industry workshop on the two countries' energy strategies and on system integration of renewable energies was held to highlight the potential for cooperation, between small medium-sized enterprises in particular.

"Through this collaboration, we aim to activate the niche of strategic partnerships between the two countries in the field of energy by joint team work, to benefit from the experiences, and strengthen the significant objectives of the UAE Energy Strategy 2050, which focuses on the implementation of innovative initiatives, finding solutions integrated with energy systems, and supports paths of research, development and innovation to provide sustainable energy," Al Mazrouei said.

Baake said that the governments of the two countries are determined to enhance bilateral dialogue and practical cooperation in the energy sector in order to maximise the benefits of, in particular, renewable energies and energy efficiency for both economies, the population in our countries and the environment.

"With a view to the ambitious targets of the Paris Agreement (on climate change), we would like to work hand in hand to promote investments in energy efficiency and the deployment of renewable energies to create win-win situations for both sides," Baake added. – Emirates News Agency, WAM -
