The Ras Al Khaimah Energy Efficiency and Renewables Strategy 2040 (EE&R Strategy) defines the long-term strategy of the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah in the field of energy efficiency and renewable energy. It stems from the vision of H.H. Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi, UAE Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Ras Al Khaimah, to have sustainability as a source of competitiveness for the emirate, by reducing the cost of energy and water for consumers. The Strategy will achieve at least 30% savings in electricity consumption, 20% savings in water consumption, and 20% contribution from renewable energy in the supply mix, when compared to a business as usual scenario. These targets are aligned with RAK Vision 2030, which aims at 10% electricity savings and 5% of electricity demand to be met by solar power by 2030.
The EE&R Strategy consists of nine programs supported by five enablers.
