At Green Energy Mission Africa (GEMA), we are delighted to share a remarkable milestone in our journey towards a sustainable future. Our CEO, Abubakar Shuaibu, had the privilege of meeting with Dr. Sultan Al Jaber, the esteemed COP28 Presidency, in a momentous discussion that left an indelible mark on our commitment to climate action.
The conversation centered around the ambitious vision for COP28 UAE, with a shared determination to make it the most impactful conference yet. Dr. Sultan Al Jaber’s unwavering dedication to youth inclusiveness in decision-making processes was particularly inspiring. Recognizing the immense potential that young minds hold, actively involving them in climate discussions allows us to tap into their creativity, innovation, and fervor for combatting climate change.
This inclusive approach not only empowers the youth but also provides a vital platform for their ideas to shape concrete and impactful solutions. Their voices, filled with fresh perspectives and untamed passion, are invaluable in our collective effort to address the urgent climate crisis.
As we look ahead to the upcoming COP28 UAE conference in December, we do so with great anticipation. The dedication and leadership demonstrated by Dr. Sultan Al Jaber instill confidence in the success of this global event. Together, we believe that through collaborative efforts, we can make significant strides in confronting the pressing climate challenges of our time.
Abubakar Shuaibu expressed his gratitude for the invaluable opportunity to engage with Dr. Sultan Al Jaber. Their shared vision and commitment to climate action reinforce our belief that impactful change is within reach.
We eagerly anticipate the conference and the transformative discussions it will ignite. GEMA remains steadfast in its mission to drive positive change in the energy sector and to be a catalyst for sustainable solutions that benefit all.
Thank you, Dr. Sultan Al Jaber, for your time, dedication, and visionary leadership. We look forward to seeing you at COP28!

Solar energy information before you install.
“It’s important you choose a certified installation company because they will be able to advise you on all regulations.” It’s best to talk to a few installers and get their estimates. Most of them will give you an idea of costs over the phone before arranging a survey on your home.
Ask them how long the work will take as well as what the warranty and/or guarantee for their work is. If any guarantees are insurance-backed this will help you avoid any surprises later.
Solar energy battery storage electric and more.
Given that solar panels can only produce power when the sun is shining, storing produced but unused energy throughout the day for use at a later time has become increasingly important. For instance, solar batteries store electricity and can be drawn on during periods of low solar production. Electric vehicles are a second product poised to ride the wave of solar energy adoption. With lower maintenance costs, lower fuel costs, and a lower environmental footprint than traditional internal combustion engine vehicles.
“Solar panels don’t create any noise pollution while generating electricity. This means that installations aren’t intrusive.” Neil Borton
When it comes to installing solar panels and switching to a more eco-friendly energy source, there’s not a one-size-fits-all approach. There are several factors worth considering to help determine if your home or business is a good candidate for solar.
“If you have solar panels, you can use battery storage technology and save the excess for later.” Our battery storage solution, Power vault 3, allows you to do just that. Now that you know the basics about solar energy, you can marvel at how today’s photovoltaic technology can capture the vast power of the sun to operate a home. It may not be rocket science—but it definitely is human ingenuity at its best.
