The US-UAE Business Council and the Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) hosted the Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation (ENEC) for a business briefing roundtable this week in Washington, D.C. Before COP28, ENEC's Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Mohamed Ibrahim Al Hammadi, presented about the recently launched Net Zero Nuclear platform. He updated on the UAE Peaceful Nuclear Energy Programme, the larger vision for ENEC and its future focus, and explored prospective partnerships with US corporations in the burgeoning nuclear energy industry.
The briefing session also highlighted the critical role of nuclear energy in the US-UAE Partnership for Accelerating Clean Energy (PACE) and at COP28, which the UAE will host for two weeks from 30th November this year in Dubai. Al Hammadi emphasised ENEC’s role as a leading clean energy company with a mission to harness the immense potential of nuclear energy for a cleaner, resilient and positive future, as per ANI news.
Along with the abundant and reliable clean electricity generated at the Barakah Nuclear Energy Plant, ENEC is working to expedite global decarbonisation by facilitating research and development of nuclear-generated, clean energy solutions. Al Hammadi highlighted that the Barakah Plant is only a small part of ENEC's larger strategic interests, with a strong emphasis presently on R&D in areas such as SMRs, advanced reactors, hydrogen, and other clean molecules.
During the roundtable, Mohamed Al Braiki, ENEC's Strategy and Planning Director, highlighted how ENEC is also offering consultancy services to capitalize on the significant experience ENEC has in bringing a new nuclear energy program into commercial service in a timely manner while adhering to the highest nuclear safety and quality standards.
