Oil and natural gas are the main sources of energy in the UAE. Maximum energy is consumed to generate power and electricity for our homes, schools, shopping malls, recreational areas, workplaces, etc. Over consumption of water or wastage of water depletes our energy resources. This is because most of our water is supplied by desalination plants. These are plants that use lots of energy to convert sea water into fresh water. Nearly 30% of energy is used by desalination plants and so we need to try and avoid the building of new plants if possible. Transportation is the second most important sector that consumes a lot of energy. There has been a tremendous increase in the number of cars in the UAE. Even though modern cars are fuel efficient, the increase in the number of cars outweighs the efficiency. Using public transport, car-pooling, switching off ACs and lights when not in use, and using water wisely are some of the ways in which we can save energy.
