UAE, Canada Foster Collaboration on Hydrogen and Decarbonisation


The Abu Dhabi Department of Energy (DoE) in partnership with Canada and the Clean Energy Business Council (CEBC) on Thursday hosted the “Canada Advancing Clean Energy – Hydrogen and Decarbonisation” forum in Abu Dhabi.

Held on the sidelines of the World Future Energy Summit, and during Expo 2020 Dubai’s Global Goals theme week, the event brought together stakeholders from the UAE and Canada to reach their shared target of achieving net zero by 2050.

The event was opened by the Honorable Jeremy Harrison, Minister of Trade and Export Development for the Province of Saskatchewan, and Jean-Philippe Linteau, Consul-General of Canada in Dubai and the Northern Emirates, and gathered industry experts from Canada and the UAE to foster closer collaboration in the hydrogen and decarbonisation space.

Awaidha Murshed Ali Al Marar, Chairman, DoE, said, “We are delighted to join this event to discuss Canada and the UAE’s key achievements in energy diversification and investment in new clean technologies, such as hydrogen, to expand decarbonisation for sustainable future growth. Building on the strong trade and economic ties between our two nations, we foresee exclusive prospects for cooperation and partnerships to advance our clean energy capacity while minimising climate impacts.”
