DEWA, ENOC explore use of hydrogen in mobility


Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) and ENOC have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to conduct a feasibility study to establish a pilot project for the use of hydrogen in mobility.

The proposed project will utilize DEWA’s existing green hydrogen production facility in the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park and ENOC's knowledge of the fuel market to build a hydrogen fuelling station and contribute to the Dubai Green Mobility Initiative 2030.

The initiative supports the UAE's hosting of the 28th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP28) and the country's goal to develop the hydrogen economy and open local markets to hydrogen vehicles.

The agreement was signed on the first day of the World Government Summit 2023 in the presence of His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman of the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy, Suhail Al Mazrouei, Minister of Energy and Infrastructure, and Omar bin Sultan Al Olama, Minister of State for Artificial Intelligence, Digital Economy and Remote Work Applications, Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD and CEO of DEWA, and Saif Humaid Al Falasi, CEO of ENOC Group.

"We are pleased to sign this MoU with ENOC Group to use green hydrogen, which is one of the environment friendly energy sources and represents one of the pillars of a sustainable future that depends on accelerating the transition to net-zero carbon emissions to achieve the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050 and Dubai Net-zero Carbon Strategy 2050," said Al Tayer.

"ENOC Group is committed to providing energy supplies and continuously supporting the UAE’s energy transition efforts. The Group’s contribution to establishing hydrogen fuel supply stations stems from the vital role that ENOC plays in the UAE’s field of fuel supply and its extensive experience in this industry," explained Al Falasi.
