Abu Dhabi-based utility Taqa has set an interim 2030 target for reducing its greenhouse gas emissions on the way to its goal of net-zero emissions by 2050. Taqa said it has committed to a 25% reduction in its Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 2030 compared to a 2019 baseline. Taqa will also seek to expand renewable energy to more than 30% of its power generation portfolio by 2030 and develop reverse osmosis technology to make up two-thirds of its desalination capacity by 2030. In the past few years, Taqa has doubled down on renewable energy projects, in support of the United Arab Emirates' energy transition and emissions targets. The UAE has set a national goal of achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
