Both will come up with a programme framework and which will then be developed and implemented jointly.

EESL will channel investments and develop customised project models relevant to Ras Al Khaimah. The collaboration is expected to make significant contribution to the emirate’s ‘Energy Efficiency and Renewables Strategy 2040’.
