The Dubai Supreme Council of Energy has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU)

with Dubai Land Department (DLD), during the Dubai Sustainable Cities Summit.

The MoU forms the foundation for further cooperation in energy demand side management, to draw an energy-intensity map of Dubai.

The summit was organised by the Dubai Land Department in collaboration with the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP).

The MoU was signed by Ahmed Butti Al Muhairbi, Secretary General of the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy, and Sultan Butti Bin Mejren, Director General of the Dubai Land Department, in the presence of senior managers and executives.

"In line with Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050, we are working towards becoming the city with the lowest Carbon Footprint in the world," said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Vice-Chairman of the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy.

“We are excited about signing this MoU with the Dubai Land Department, and contributing to the Dubai Integrated Energy Strategy 2030 to reduce energy consumption by 30 per cent by 2030," he added.

"Through our cooperation with the Dubai Land Department, we seek to exchange knowledge and raise awareness among the community about conserving energy and water, with this energy intensity map," said Al Muhairbi.
