ABSTRACT OF PAPER
 
Title of Paper:
Gulf Renewable Energy Initiatives
 
Paper Proposal Text :
Rising energy costs, global economy, resource preservation and environmental issues mandate harnessing power of renewable energy from resources such as the sun, wind and water for ongoing energy consumption. The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) promotes adoption of renewable energy especially in the oil and gas-rich nations, the Gulf Corporation Council (GCC). While United Arab Emirates (UAE) is the front-runner in renewable energy initiatives, other GCC nations are also allocating significant capital towards these initiatives. Renewable energy projects in all GCC countries are either in planning or implementation phases and instrumental in each nation’s respective energy policies. Solar, wind and eventually ocean powered energy are planned for these oil-rich nations to continue supply of energy to other nations.
