Dubai: HH Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman of the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy, chaired the Council’s 64th meeting held remotely. HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Vice Chairman of the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy, attended the meeting.

The meeting discussed several topics including the precautionary measures taken by ENOC against COVID-19.

“During the meeting, we discussed several strategies, decisions and plans that support the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to enhance sustainable development and increase the share of renewable and clean energy. These include Resolution No. (6) of 2021 regulating district cooling services in Dubai, issued by His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council of Dubai.

This is part of our efforts to make Dubai a pioneering model for electricity and water demand management,” added Al Tayer.

new retail outlets for fuel and mobile gasoline distribution, in addition to the decision to regulate the circulation and distribution of liquefied gas cylinders, and the tasks of the Regulatory Committee for Petroleum Products,” said Al Muhairbi.
