Abstract

  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a federal state made up of seven emirates: Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al Quwain, Ras Al Khaimah and Fujairah. The UAE is bordered by Oman to the east and Saudi Arabia to the south; it shares sea borders with Qatar, Iran, and Pakistan. The federal structures draft the outlines of general policies, while the emirates implement those policies.

  • Energy Supply

    Oil:

    Oil production did not recover from its 9% decrease in 2020 and remained stable at 172 Mt in 2021. It had previously remained stable between 2015-2019 at around 180 Mt after a rapid increase of around 6%/year between 2010 and 2015.

    The country exports around 85% of its production (2021), almost exclusively to Asia and the Pacific region.

  • Energy Prices

    Electricity:

    Each emirate decides its prices independently. Electricity prices are dependent on natural gas prices.

  • Energy Consumption

    Total energy consumption per capita is very high (the 11th highest worldwide in 2021) and represented 6.8 toe in 2021. Per capita electricity consumption was also very high in 2021 at 13 MWh (8th highest in the world), because of air conditioning in buildings and electro-intensive industries (aluminium).

  • Issues & Prospects

    Electricity:

    The sharp growth in the consumption of electricity has led the UAE to commit to making important investments for the construction and extension of power plants.
