HOW GREEN IS YOUR CART?
Megastructures such as shopping malls in the UAE are increasingly looking at ways to curb their energy consumption, through the implementation of green energy practices and technologies such as solar panels and LED lighting. Towards that end, Majid Al Futtaim recently unveiled the first phase of its solar photovoltaic plant at Mall of the Emirates that is set to generate 3GWH of clean energy, saving up to Dh1.4 mln on energy costs every year. Experts estimate that ramping up renewables to 10% of the UAE’s total energy mix and 25% f total power generation could generate annual savings of $1.9 bln by 2030. The UAE, in general, and Dubai in particular, is committed to a solar-powered future with Dubai targeted to source 7% of its power supply from clean energy by 2020 and 75% by 2050.

Newsletter 12/2018UAE’S VAT MOVE HAS GONE WELL, INFLATION TO MODERATE, SAYS IMF
The UAE’s introduction of value-added tax has gone smoothly and inflation, having jumped in response, will moderate, reported the International Monetary Fund last week. Annual consumer price inflation jumped to 4.8% in January, the highest since 2015, but dropped back to 3.4% in March. The latest data suggested the impact of the tax would be short-lived, partly because inflation had dropped in areas of the economy not covered by VAT. Dubai’s economy is expected o grow 4.2% in 2019 after 3.4% this year as the government ramps up its spending on construction before Expo2020 and as global trade recovers.
