The companies said that they plan to develop a roadmap to cut emissions from the GE natural gas turbines by: “Exploring hydrogen as a fuel, as well as carbon capture, utilisation, and storage solutions.”

EGA operates 33 GE natural gas turbines at Jebel Ali and Al Tawalah, with a total combined capacity of 5200 MW. EGA said that electricity generation accounted for a significant proportion of its greenhouse gas emissions.

Last month, the UAE became the first of the Gulf’s petrostates to commit to eliminating CO2 emissions within its borders.
