Serbia and UAE to cooperate on a hydrogen project – New wind farm to be built

The Serbian Mining and Energy Minister, Dubravka Đedović, and the United Arab Emirates Energy and Infrastructure Minister, Suhail Al Mazroui, agreed in Abu Dhabi to sign the Memorandum on Cooperation stipulating the development of hydrogen as a new energy source and a continuation of the cooperation in renewable energy sources sector, the Serbian ministry announced today.

The two sides agreed that the cooperation between Serbia and the UAE in the energy sector is growing and that the next step in upgrading the cooperation was to exchange experiences and knowledge when it comes to the use of hydrogen as an energy source, the press release says.

“Hydrogen is an energy source of the future that will enable cleaner energy with less of an environmental impact. The UAE have the knowledge, development technologies and companies which, on the foundations of the friendly relations between our two countries and leaders, presidents Aleksandar Vučić and Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, already operate in Serbia in the RES sector and can become an important partner for us in the further development of RES, but also green and blue hydrogen as a new energy source in our energy system”, Đedović stated.

She also pointed out that the use of RES potentials was an important instrument in improving Serbia’s security in energy supply, as well as in reaching climate neutrality parameters, which is one of the key global challenges.

“The most significant result of the Serbia-UAE cooperation so far has been the Čibuk 1 Wind Farm, which produces green energy that supplies 113,000 households. This year, we will also start building Čibuk 2, a 150MW wind far. We probably won’t stop there, because the UAE companies are also interested in solar energy projects, something they are very experienced about,” Đedović concluded.
