World Government Summit 2018 Dubai
The World Government Summit Is Wrapping Up, but Not Without 1 Last Announcement
Though the annual World Government Summit is about to wrap up in Dubai, the CEO of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA), has taken to the stage on the final day to make one final announcement.
According to H.E. Saeed Al Tayer, Dubai will be powered 75 percent by solar energy by the year 2050.

The announcement is just one of many that is pushing Dubai toward a cleaner, greener, and more efficient city.
Just last year, Sheikh Mohammed announced the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050, which plans on generating 7 percent of all of Dubai's power output from clean energy by 2020. The plan is multi-fold, as it plans to generate more and more clean power up through 2050, when the city will reach its goal.
With driverless taxis on the horizon, Dubai is truly getting greener by the moment!
