When Majid Al-Suwaidi landed in Aruba in 2016, the United Arab Emirates consulate general to New York may have seemed as unlikely a guest as any to the tiny Caribbean island. His home nation and Aruba are separated by more than 12,000 kilometers (roughly 7,500 miles) as the crow flies. And the former oil company geologist wasn’t vacationing, like most tourists there, but had come to discuss business — the business of renewable energy, including solar panels and wind farms.
