The UAE’s Emirates Nuclear Energy Corp., which in 2020 started one of the four nuclear units, expects all reactors to be operational in four years as OPEC’s third largest producer seeks to diversify its energy mix. The CEO of Emirates Nuclear Energy Corp. expects all four of its nuclear reactors to be operational by 2024, asserting that 25% of UAE’s electricity will be generated by nuclear and clean energy. Its first 1.4 GW nuclear power reactor reached 100% capacity in December. The CEO said that green hydrogen may also be a product of the nuclear reactors one day.
