    (ANSAmed) - NAPLES, NOVEMBER 24 - Abu Dhabi will host on January 17-19 the World Future Energy Summit with at the center sustainability and the role of renewable sources in the future.

    The Forum in 2021 was held online due to the Covid emergency while this year it will take place at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center for an edition which organizers described, on the newspaper The National, as "perfectly timed" given that "in the region more countries have committed to building major infrastructure projects that significantly reduce (their) reliance on fossil fuels, with green hydrogen generation projects emerging as the crown jewel of these efforts".

    The United Arab Emirates and other countries in the area have in fact prepared plans to introduce hydrogen into their energy sources and there are projects for the construction of a blue ammonia plant, used within the hydrogen cycle, in Ruwais, while another one is planned in the industrial area of Khalifa, in Abu Dhabi.

    Work is also underway in Oman on these projects with the ongoing construction of a hydrogen plant which should reach maximum capacity in 2038, fuelled by solar and wind energy.

    Saudi Arabia, the country exporting more oil in the world, is instead building a large plant in Neom, a major futuristic city straddling the borders of Egypt and Jordan, in the north.

    The conference in Abu Dhabi will be attended by companies from around the world involved in the sector, for an energy direction that also listens to the appeals of the UN on rising global temperatures. (ANSAmed).
