The Government of Ras Al Khaimah considers energy efficiency and adoption of renewable energy as important drivers for the competitiveness and sustainability of its economy.
The RAK Energy Efficiency and Renewables Strategy 2040 targets 30% electricity savings, 20% water savings and 20% renewable energy in the generation mix by 2040. The Strategy, already well underway through a multitude of programs and initiatives, connects with Federal strategies and supports the UAE’s commitments to climate change mitigation as part of the UNFCCC.
In order to enhance dialogue within the industry and cross-learning opportunities across similar strategies in the region and in the world, Ras Al Khaimah Municipality will host the first RAK Energy Summit, held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Saud Bin Saqr Al Qasimi, UAE Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Ras Al Khaimah.
The first RAK Energy Summit, with its main themes of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, will take place at the Al Hamra International Exhibition and Conference Center in Ras Al Khaimah next year, and will bring together international thought-leaders and trailblazers with decision makers from the government and the private sector.
