DMCC in collaboration with Thomson Reuters, Euro Petroleum Consultants and CMS organized a Renewal Energy Seminar on 17th April 2017 which was attended by over 60 industry professionals.
The seminar focused on the growing focus on increasing the penetration of renewables by the governments and regulators within the GCC, with Dubai recently forecasting 25% of its energy mix being from renewables by 2030, increasing to 75% by 2050. In addition, there is a range of emerging technologies that have the ability to change the face of the electricity sector in the region. These technologies can offer huge opportunities to promote decarbonisation and energy security. A number of governments in the MENA region have been leading the way globally in this regard, such as the DEWA-driven ‘smart initiatives’.
This seminar explored some of these issues and lessons learnt from recent projects in the renewables sector and highlight some of the opportunities and challenges that such ‘disruptive technologies’ can present in the MENA region
Topics also include:
• Energy Storage
• Solar Dubai
• Alternative Energy in the Gulf States
• Investment/Financing in relation to Alternative Energy
