The Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure (MOEI) announced during COP26 the UAE Hydrogen Leadership Roadmap. The roadmap includes three core objectives: unlocking new sources of value creation through exports of low carbon hydrogen, derivatives and products to key importing regions, fostering new hydrogen derivative opportunities through low-carbon steel, sustainable kerosene as well as other priority industries and contributing to the UAE’s 2050 net zero commitments. The UAE aims to support the low-carbon hydrogen business through five critical enablers: a clear regulatory framework backed by policies, incentives, standards, and certifications; best-in-class technology through value-add partnerships and the vibrant and robust UAE domestic research and development structure; access to existing and new Government-to-Government relationships to accelerate growth of a domestic ecosystem; readily available land and infrastructure resources to support domestic production; and green financing within the UAE and in international capital markets. The UAE targets 25% market share of low-carbon hydrogen by 2030 in the key export markets, including Japan, South Korea, Germany, India and Europe.
