A new source of energy discovered in the UAE on 5,000 square kilometres of land on the border between Dubai and Abu Dhabi will support the country's aim to be totally self-sufficient and also provide additional power capacity to boost broader economic diversification efforts.

This week, host Mustafa Alrawi, assistant editor in chief, and Kelsey Warner, future editor of The National, talk to energy correspondent Jennifer Gnana about the new discovery and the factors weighing on oil prices. Joining them in studio is cofounder and principal at Changeosity, Suzanne Gandy, and an expert in culture and leadership transformation, social behaviour and the future of work.
