Nuclear Energy

Nuclear energy is playing an important role for many nations around the world who are seeking sustainable solutions to rising energy demand.

The UAE believes that nuclear energy can play a major role in the goal to reduce carbon emissions.  Combined with the investment in development of renewables like solar power,  nuclear energy figures strongly in the blueprint for powering the nation’s economic growth.
