OPES Q&A Series with TotalEnergies

TotalEnergies is playing an active role in transitioning to clean energy with its ambition to net zero by 2050. Our aim is to have “More Energy, Less Emission”. This is why TotalEnergies chose to invest massively close to $4 billion in 2022 in electricity and low carbon molecules., thereby lifting gross production for renewable electricity to 17GW. In 2023 we will invest around $5 billion in low-carbon energies.

Recently there was an inauguration of TotalEnergies 17 MWp solar PV farm to power Veolia water desalination plant in Sur, Sharqiyah on 6 November 2023. It will serve over 600,000 inhabitants in the Sharqiyah region and help cut 27,200 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year, equivalent to emission generated by 6,000 internal combustion engines.

The desalination plant will be major contributor to water security and Oman National Energy Strategy, which aims to derive 30% of electricity by renewables by 2030. This is one of the objectives of Oman 2040 vision. More renewable projects are expected to come.

TotalEnergies is committed to develop 10 objectives aligned with United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as part of the “SustainbALL” program. TotalEnergies has been a member of the UN Global Impact since 2016 and supports SDGs.

TotalEnergies is always looking to develop low carbon projects, and this will lead to more announcements.

TotalEnergies looks forward to network with its industry peers and to hear the latest updates in the industry.
