Dubai – Outside, the temperatures in the early afternoon scratch the mark of 30 degrees, in the hotel it is almost 20 degrees. It’s almost a bit chilly, thinks one or the other person who has traveled to Dubai with the delegation from the Ministry of Economic Affairs and the Chamber of Commerce from Austria. But when in doubt, you cool down more here in the Gulf. That costs energy, but there is an abundance of that in the oil-rich United Arab Emirates (UAE). The per capita energy consumption is among the highest in the world.
