Dubai plans to have the world’s lowest carbon footprint by 2050

Dubai in May took another big step toward its goal of becoming the world’s greenest city when the inauguration of the 200MW first stage of the 800MW third phase of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park brought the emirate’s clean energy share of its total installed capacity to 4%.

This follows Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, in March breaking ground on the solar park’s 700MW fourth phase.

Dubai plans to have the world’s lowest carbon footprint by 2050, when it targets clean energy sources such as solar power to account for 75% of the city’s power output, up from a targeted 7% by 2020 and 25% by 2030.
