The demand for electric power and water are inextricably linked in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

One of its newer and larger plants, the Mirfa Independent Water and Power Plant, which has a power capacity of 1.6 GW and produces 52.5 million gallons of water per day, integrates the newest iterations of power generation and desalination technologies.

Over the years, the UAE has leveraged its large oil and natural gas resources to bolster a booming economy and to support its financial and trading importance in the Middle East and around the world.
