UAE Is Now Using Nuclear Power For Green Energy And Its The First Time In The Arab World

It’s been a great year of accomplishments for the UAE and now they have another achievement under their belt!

The UAE has done something innovative and just weeks after its historical probe launch into Mars. The GCC country has officially inaugurated ‘The Barakah Nuclear Energy Plant’ to provide green energy in the region.

#BarakahDream as this initiative is termed, has the capacity to supply 25% of UAE’s electricity once fully operational. It is located in Al Dhafra of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, approximately 53km from the city of Ruwais. This is the first for the Arab world!

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) praised the program under a social media post:

This is an important milestone towards commercial operations and generating clean energy.
