World needs ‘all the energy solutions’ available

The world needs all the energy solutions it can get if energy security is to be realised and Net Zero targets are to be reached, according to Dr. Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber, UAE Minister of Industry and Advanced Technology and Managing Director and Group CEO of Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC).

Delivering a unifying message at the opening of the 38th edition of the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC), he said, “It is not oil and gas, or solar, not wind or nuclear, or hydrogen. It is all of the above, plus the clean energies yet to be discovered, commercialised and deployed.”

Moving forward, technology will be one of the greatest enablers of the oil and gas industry and this is an area where the industry can amplify and accelerate its impact, according to HE Dr. Al Jaber.

“Take carbon capture and storage. It is one technology we can take to scale, not just in our industry but across all industries. And then there is hydrogen. Just a few days ago, I saw the first shipment of ammonia arrive from the UAE to Hamburg. It felt like a historic moment.
