Dr. Abdul-Ghani Rashid Al-Alami said in exclusive statements to "Sharjah 24", that the conference launched via Zoom Programme, seeks to reduce carbon emissions in the water desalination system because the emission has become a threatening cause of climate change, and that clean, potable and high-quality water is secured by using renewable energy. The water sources are few and thus desalination of sea water or the available wells is addressed.

The head of the Sustainable Energy and Energy Systems Research Center added that the University of Sharjah is conducting qualitative research on the use of renewable energy for desalination, and this is done in communication with a large number of researchers from around the world, and the University of Sharjah aims to benefit all desalination-based entities to maintain natural climate system.
