Welcome to the official newsletter of the 7th World Future Energy Summit, to be held in Abu Dhabi from January 20-22, 2014.
The adoption of renewable energies, energy efficiency and sustainable technologies is continuing apace as countries seek to diversify their energy mix and lower carbon emissions. Across the Middle East and North Africa, countries are moving ahead with new projects to meet their clean energy goals.
For instance, an estimated US$ 155 billion worth of solar energy projects are in the pipeline across the GCC countries. Such investment will open up significant business opportunities for regional and international companies alike, and sustain further industry innovation.
Against this backdrop, the World Future Energy Summit hosted by Masdar, has become the world’s preeminent gathering for renewable energy and the advancement of sustainable technologies, bringing together heads of state, policymakers, business decision makers, investors, technology providers, academics and NGOs.
WFES 2013 welcomed more than 26,000 attendees as part of Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week, and an equally impressive attendance is anticipated at next year’s Summit, to be held under the theme ‘Powering the future of energy innovation and investment’.
As in previous years, the exhibition floor will enable developers and technology providers to collaborate on commissioned projects, with a host of matchmaking tools available to turn prospects into genuine partnerships.
The conference programme, meanwhile, will offer in-depth analysis and debate of the key issues across renewable energy sources and energy efficiency: in particular, policy and regulation, and technology and innovation.
Whether you are attending to win business, to invest, to network or simply to learn more about the industry, the World Future Energy Summit 2014 is a gateway to a diversity of opportunities in renewable energy and sustainable development, in the MENA region and further afield.
