 According to an AREC statement released Thursday, Ta’ani said at the high-profile event that the Kingdom has the highest transition rates to renewable energy sources and electric vehicles.
 He urged Arab nations to develop their renewable energy industries rather than importing foreign technology and modernize electrical connections and power transmission by utilizing smart electricity grids.
 He indicated that more than USD 1 trillion in investments are projected in Arab nations by 2035, highlighting the need for a strong infrastructure to support large-scale initiatives like Saudi Arabia’s NEOM project and electric interconnection with Europe.

 He noted that a new power strategy for Arab nations had been approved, relying on green hydrogen, smart cities, electric vehicles, and sustainable energy to ensure a bright future for the next generation.
 The summit discussed strategies for laying the groundwork for coordinated climate action to achieve the Paris Climate Agreement’s objectives of net zero emissions by 2050.
