As long as the world needs oil and gas, we’ll give it, says UAE climate change minister
The United Arab Emirates will continue to supply the world with energy for as long as it needs it, its Minister for Climate Change and Environment Mariam Almheiri said in an exclusive interview with CNBC.
“As long as the world needs oil and gas, we’re going to give it to them,” Almheiri told CNBC’s Hadley Gamble on the sidelines of German Chancellor Olaf Scholz’s visit to the United Arab Emirates.
On Sunday, the UAE signed an agreement to deliver liquefied natural gas to Germany, with its first shipment due to arrive by the end of the year.
Referring to the UAE’s investments in renewable energy projects, she said, “It’s not just about the production … you’ve got to look at the storage, you’ve got to look at the network, you’ve got to look at the distribution.
Water scarcity is another concern for the UAE, she added.
