Following the successful development of the Barakah nuclear power plant and the continued progress of the UAE Peaceful Nuclear Energy Programhe Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation (ENEC), is now using its experience and knowledge to drive the creation of clean molecules to support global decarbonization.

These clean molecules will play an important role in preventing carbon emissions and supporting nations to get closer to their net zero emissions goals.

These new areas of opportunity recognize that there is a global race to generate electricity and clean molecules not only to decarbonize heavy industry, but also to fuel the increasing demand for the clean energy needed to power the data centers in which the world depends greatly. It depends on the digital world.

Al Hammadi highlighted that the number of data centers has increased from 800,000 in 2013 to 8 million in 2022, which is modeled to consume 10 percent of the world’s electricity by 2030. These centers, along with the increasing increase in artificial intelligence, mean that countries around the world will soon compete for digital customers seeking clean electricity to locate data centers.
