Running from 9-12 September, the World Energy Council’s flagship event is bringing together industry heads to discuss energy futures, critical innovation areas, and new strategies.

Suhail Al Mazrouei, the UAE’s Minister of Energy & Industry, said the event can help “lay the foundations for a more prosperous energy industry”, with innovation helping to drive a low carbon economy.

Speaking at the opening press conference held at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, he said: “The United Arab Emirates is honoured to be hosting the congress, which builds on and reflects the ambitious energy transformation that the country is going through at present.

“We recently announced two of the largest solar generation projects in the world and have also embarked on a civil nuclear programme.

“The UAE’s 2050 Energy Strategy was started as a result of the country leadership’s vision towards sustainability and diversity.

“From that vision, we worked on the first long term energy strategy in the region aiming for 50% contribution from clean energy sources with zero Co2 emissions, and we are also investing in energy efficiency initiatives.

“Despite the different corners of the globe that we occupy, we all face the same challenge to achieve a collaborative, sustainable and innovative energy future that enables societal, commercial and community prosperity.”

The congress is set to welcome over 250 high-level speakers, 72 ministers, and 500 CEO throughout the four-day event.

Younghoon David Kim, chair of the World Energy Council, said addressing the energy challenges of the future required a collective effort.

He said: “The World Energy Council has been engaging leaders in all sectors from across the world, to meet the challenges of whole energy system innovation and work together to shape the energy future.

“We are bringing together the world’s energy leaders to find solutions to energy transition challenges that will enable whole societies to benefit as well as regenerate the earth’s natural life support systems.”
