China and UAE Launch a Green Tech Joint Venture
The BRICS economic alliance grew by six countries in a landmark development last month. Indeed, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Argentina, Egypt, Ethiopia, and Iran joined the bloc at its 15th annual summit. Now, the invitees are showcasing the benefits and potential of that expansion.
Specifically, BRICS members China and the UAE have launched a joint venture as the latest example of their investment. The deal between United and Lead International Investment will provide energy efficiency to more than 700 buildings in Abu Dhabi. Moreover, that will also expand across the UAE and the Middle East, according to a new report.
The venture will allow Unity to reduce energy costs in the country by more than $30,000 per month. Moreover, that savings is per every single building involved in the collaboration. Additionally, the report noted a host of meetings that led to the building of trust between both sides. Ultimately, this led to the investment.
“We have a vision,” Moustafa Rasha, EIH Energy Division CEO, stated. “We are here to complement our country’s vision regarding the 2030 sustainable energy goal and to reduce carbon emissions.” Subsequently, the deal signifies another step toward that goal and another sign of a growing partnership between the two nations.
