Mideast Gulf governments will need to transform their governing approach to attract more outside players, according to French utility Engie's Stephan Gobert, Senior Vice President Hydrogen for Asia, Middle East and Africa. For example, in markets such as the UAE, state utilities including Abu Dhabi's Taqa and Dubai's Dewa have a monopoly on retail. International players such as Engie are therefore limited in their offerings, including in terms of green energy distribution, Gobert tells Energy Intelligence in an interview. Changing this would allow industries to tap into decentralized renewable energy solutions.
