    Masdar and EGA form partnership for battery and hydrogen storage projects

    Masdar and Emirates Global Aluminium (EGA) from Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company PJSC have joined forces to explore renewable energy projects. These projects may include battery storage and the production and storage of green hydrogen. Their main objective is to aid in decarbonizing EGA’s current operations in the UAE and potentially future operations as well.

     

    Additionally, the collaboration aims to identify opportunities globally where Masdar can help power new aluminium production facilities with renewable energy sources. Given that aluminium production is known for its high energy consumption, transitioning to renewable energy could significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions, as currently about 60% of the industry’s emissions come from generating electricity using fossil fuels.

     

    Chief Green Hydrogen Officer, Mohamed El-Ramahi, commented “Masdar is proud to be collaborating with EGA to help decarbonise the aluminium production process. Strong partnerships such as this are exactly what the world needs to accelerate our path to Net Zero.”

     

    “When organisations combine their knowledge and resources to help decarbonise vital industries, we not only protect the environment but we also boost the economy. This is core to our mission at Masdar.”

     

    “We look forward to developing further compelling propositions for international markets to maximise the economic benefits of using renewable energy.”

     

    Chief executive of Emirates Global Aluminium, Abdulnasser Bin Kalban, added “Aluminium plays an essential role in decarbonisation economy-wide, which is why demand for this metal has the potential to grow by as much as 80% by 2050. Fulfilling this potential depends on how sustainably aluminium is made.”

     

    “EGA’s alliance with Masdar, another UAE industrial champion and a global leader in clean energy, should unlock opportunities to decarbonise our existing operations including further expanding our production of CelestiAL solar aluminium, and secure low-carbon growth.”

     

    “We are already exploring opportunities together, and I look forward to working with Masdar both in the UAE and around the world.”
