The Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation (ENEC) has signed a three-year agreement with the Atlantic Council to collaborate on the Council’s Nuclear Energy Policy Initiative and support its efforts in promoting nuclear energy as a central component of the clean energy transition. 

The Atlantic Council is a US-based think tank and home to the Global Energy Center, one of the leading US energy centers for promoting energy security and working across government, industry and society to identify the way forward for the global energy sector.  Also read: US, UAE Forge $100 Billion Clean Energy Collaboration

The collaboration will see ENEC and the Atlantic Council join forces to support the Atlantic Council’s new Nuclear Energy Policy Initiative, which is dedicated to identifying the pathways for global decarbonization using civil nuclear energy. Together, ENEC and Atlantic Council will highlight the role of nuclear energy in securing energy security and sustainability and the role of current and advanced nuclear technologies in decarbonizing the power sector and the broader clean energy transition. The agreement was signed in Washington, DC, by His Excellency Mohamed Ibrahim Al Hammadi, managing director and chief executive officer of ENEC, and Mr. Fred Kempe, president and chief executive officer of the Atlantic Council.

The collaboration is part of ENEC’s commitment to supporting constructive dialogue on the crucial role nuclear energy plays in delivering both national energy security and sustainability and the policies and structures needed to support the sector.

Commenting on the development, Al Hammadi said, “Our agreement with the Atlantic Council is a natural and progressive outcome of our long-standing partnership to raise awareness of nuclear energy as a realistic component of the energy mix for nations looking to boost their energy security and sustainability. We look forward to working with Atlantic Council, as we are committed to sharing our experience in delivering a new generation of civil nuclear program with other countries looking to embark on their own programs, developing the frameworks necessary for success.”

ENEC will work closely with Atlantic Council on global nuclear energy advocacy and promote new areas of peaceful nuclear advancement for electricity generation and non-electrical purposes, such as industrial heat and hydrogen production. Meanwhile, the Atlantic Council will also support the UAE’s leading position in nuclear energy when it hosts COP28 next year, in 2023, a gathering of world leaders to advance climate change cooperation.
