U.S. and UAE to cooperate on Masdar clean energy project

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and Masdar, Abu Dhabi’s renewable energy initiative, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to promote collaboration on clean and sustainable energy technologies.

The agreement, signed at DOE by U.S. Deputy Secretary of Energy Daniel Poneman and Dr. Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber, CEO of Masdar, establishes a framework for cooperation in three key areas - carbon capture and sequestration, water and bio-fuels, and building technology.


The agreement will enable scientific and technical exchanges and joint research and development of clean energy technologies.


Masdar also recently signed a similar agreement with Canada, setting out a strategic agreement between the two governments for the sharing of research and evaluation and analysis on non-confidential CCS projects and technologies.
