International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) announced on Friday it has signed a pact with UAE-based global supply chain solutions company DP World to collaborate on decarbonising the shipping and ports sectors, a release stated. The collaboration will focus on aligning current infrastructure, logistics and processes with the demands of the energy transition and scaling up the use of renewable-based fuels and electrification, IRENA stated. IRENA Director-General Francesco La Camera commended DP World’s success in reducing CO2 emissions from its UAE operations by 50 per cent this year. The company’s Jebel Ali port’s electricity is sourced entirely from renewable sources provided by the local utility provider [DEWA]. Through the agreement, IRENA and DP World aim to collaborate on scaling up efforts to address supply, infrastructure and technological challenges that can increase the uptake of these renewables-based fuels.
