Background on EU GCC energy cooperation
The GCC countries comprise some of the world’s largest producers of oil and gas. In the past few years countries in the GCC started a number of initiatives to diversify their economy and their energy mix. In particular GCC governments have put the emphasis on sustainable energy transition with the implementation of clean energy plans or the adoption of targets – mainly based on diversification strategies, energy efficiency and renewables.
