Association for Borderless Renewables 
 
 Environmental imperatives, including the need to combat global warming, require that all nations contribute what they can to the transition from energy sources reliant upon fossil fuels to renewables. Some regions have additional strategic motives for moving away from oil and gas. But those motives do not lessen the obligation to cooperate with each other. We have therefore established Association for Borderless Renewables both to foster private investment in this conversion process and to promote cross-border collaboration on projects between regions and countries; with our current focus on the transformation in the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia.
