Road to COP28: Hydrogen Takes Center Stage

In advance of COP28, the U.S.-U.A.E. Business Council is pleased to present a new policy report on hydrogen as a viable, clean, and efficient energy source. Hydrogen will have its moment in the spotlight as a key pillar of COP28 and in light of the U.A.E.’s newly released National Hydrogen Strategy. At COP28, negotiators are set to announce a plan to double global hydrogen production to 180 million tons per year by 2030. The U.A.E. government, as part of its Hydrogen Strategy, plans to embark on local hydrogen projects aimed to position the country as a global leader in this field. 

Readers of this report will:

  • Gain insights into key developments in the hydrogen sector and key hydrogen projects in the U.A.E. 
  • Better understand why the U.A.E. views hydrogen as an important alternative energy source and why it is positioned to become a central player in the global hydrogen market.   
  • Learn more detail about the U.A.E.’s National Hydrogen Strategy and the opportunities it presents for private sector engagement from U.S. industry.
