A high-level UAE delegation will visit Germany on June 28, 2022, to explore ways of cooperation between the two countries in the field of clean energy, as the Gulf nation advances its goal of achieving net-zero emissions by 2050. The delegation, led by Deputy Energy and Infrastructure Minister Sharif Olama, will include ministerial officials and executives from Adnoc and Masdar to discuss energy opportunities, particularly in renewables and hydrogen. Several partnerships in the energy sector are expected to be signed during the visit. The visit aims to establish a sustainable cooperation mechanism between the two countries, aiming to maximize the benefits of the joint cooperation agreement signed by the two countries in 2021.

The visit will include briefing international companies in the energy sector of both countries on the benefits and services offered by the agreement, as well as opportunities for new and sustainable partnerships and ways to best utilize them. The two countries signed the UAE-Germany Energy Partnership in 2017 to enhance dialogue and provide a framework for cooperation on the energy transition. They have also launched a bilateral hydrogen task force to engage ministries, companies and scientists in a systematized process to promote the hydrogen economy. The two countries aim to cooperate on joint production of upstream green fuels, midstream transportation and technology projects for downstream industries.

The UAE also has two German-UAE projects producing green hydrogen, one in Dubai and one in Abu Dhabi. The Deputy Minister of the Ministry said the UAE delegation will meet with senior government officials and private sector representatives to discuss ways to strengthen joint cooperation in the energy and hydrogen sectors. Mr. Al Olama said that Germany is the UAE's strategic partner in the energy sector, especially in the field of clean energy, and the relations between the two countries have made great progress in the past few years.
