World’s leading gas exporter wants to become champion of renewable energy

Abstract: 
The website discusses how Qatar has been rendered the biggest exporter of the increasingly important energy source, liquefied natural gas, or LNG which is seen as cleaner, safer and more easily transported than other hydrocarbons. The text moves on to comments made by many officials on their willingness to continue focusing on economic diversification, a sovereign wealth fund, investment in education and high tech and alternative revenues rather on the limited resources of fossil fuels. The country is also championing the development of a thriving renewable energy sector as part of its drive to build sustainable development and meet future energy demands as for instance, through raising awareness on ways to conserve water and electricity.
