Innovative solutions for a sustainable energy

The Abu Dhabi Department of Energy was established in accordance with Law No. 11 of 2018 to drive the Emirate’s energy transition efforts with a focus on promoting economic growth, and boosting environmental, social and economic sustainability.

Our role includes enacting policies and regulations and developing strategies to ensure an effective energy transition in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.

We issue licences for companies and organisations operating in the sector and monitor their compliance with quality standards, which, in turn, supports the Emirate’s goals to ensure the sustainability of energy sources.
