During the last four decades, the emirate of Dubai has witnessed rapid economic growth that resulted in more activities across all sectors of its economy. The energy sector has been an important contributor to such growth, and succeeding in keeping an effective and efficient energy system has allowed the economy of Dubai to grow without energy supply bottlenecks experienced in many countries. However, Dubai’s energy needs continue to rise at unprecedented rates. This warrants a need to restructure the energy sector by adopting appropriate policies to increase efficiency, and looking for alternative renewable energy sources. This chapter provides an overview of the developments in the energy sector of Dubai. Notwithstanding the difficulties in obtaining reliable data on this important sector, this chapter provides readers with comprehensive historical and recent information about the energy sector’s infrastructure as well as reviews key strategies for energy security and efficiency in the emirate.
