Energy Transitions in the Context of Climate Change and Sustainable Development

QNRF PR 0 4249

Clean energy has become a major growth sector as countries around the world are increasingly looking towards transitioning to low emission energy systems. The EU and the Arab region, particularly the GCC, are both committed to progress toward low emissions and sustainable practices. However, this shift needs to progress substantially if we are to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement. This means that the energy sector should undergo a deep transformation over the next few decades.

Hydrogen- The Energy Carrier of Future

QNRF PR 0 1742

The steady discovery of fossil fuel including crude oil and gas over the last century has played an important role in the miraculous development and the transformation of the world community. However, the ever-increasing consumption of fossil fuel, which has grown exponentially over the decades has led to a sharp rise in carbon emissions and global warming.

Qatar’s geographical positioning makes it an ideal location for harnessing solar power. In 2020, Doha received around ten hours of sunlight daily, with June being the sunniest month averaging more than twelve hours of sunlight a day. To capitalize on this, the government of Qatar has set an objective to meet 20% of its energy needs through solar power by 2030 which will reduce its dependence on hydrocarbons and consequently, reduce its carbon footprint.
