About DIES 2030

In line with the UAE Vision 2021 and the Green Growth Strategy, the Dubai Integrated Energy Strategy (DIES) 2030 was developed by Dubai Supreme Council of Energy (DSCE) to support Dubai's vision of leadership in energy security and efficiency. The Dubai Integrated Energy Strategy 2030 sets the strategic direction towards secure and sustainable energy supply and demand.

The main goals of DIES 2030 are to secure uninterrupted energy supply and moderate the growing energy and water demand of Dubai, and to increase the sustainability and competitiveness of its economy.

Security of Energy Supply
– Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050

Dubai aims to ensure a stable supply of clean & sustainable energy and promote alternate energy sources like gas supply/LNG, clean coal, natural gas, utility scale solar and import/nuclear. More specifically, the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2030 targets an increase of the share of renewable electricity produced to 1% by 2020 and 5% by 2030.

Reduction of Demand
- DSM Strategy 2030

Demand Side Management (DSM) strategy is one of the flagship programs of DIES 2030 and it aims to reduce Dubai's electricity and water consumption by 30% by 2030.

Sustainable Growth

Dubai is focused on achieving sustainable growth through effective waste management, green mobility and investment in clean energy and smart technologies. These pillars are supported by key enablers such as fostering an environment conducive to innovation and discovery, promoting R&D into new technologies and building supportive policy and regulatory frameworks. DIES 2030 is also facilitated through proper funding and financing for key projects and exploring project models like public-private partnerships (PPP) and independent power producers (IPP).
