Middle East Energy Dubai, the most reputable and comprehensive energy event in the MENA region, takes place at Dubai World Trade Centre from 7 – 9 March
Dubai, United Arab Emirates: Algeria’s energy planners and innovators will find unique opportunity to showcase their work to transition toward renewable energy; Live and in-person Middle East Energy 2022 takes place at Dubai World Trade Centre from 7 – 9 March.
Algeria’s bold new agenda to reduce natural gas consumption and conserve oil and gas export revenues by turning to renewable energy will fuel game-changing government-to-government and private sector collaborations across the MENA region, according to Azzan Mohammed, the Exhibition Director of next month’s Middle East Energy Dubai.
Held under the patronage of HH Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai, and hosted by the UAE Ministry of Energy & Infrastructure, Middle East Energy Dubai, the most reputable and comprehensive energy event in the MENA region, takes place at Dubai World Trade Centre from 7 – 9 March.
The event is expected to attract over 18,000 energy professionals for a three-day conference featuring five key product sections: Smart Solutions, Renewable & Clean Energy, Critical & Backup Power, Transmission & Distribution, and Energy Consumption & Management.
The return of the live and in-person Middle East Energy Dubai is timely for Algeria, which is pushing to reach 30% of power generation from renewables by 2030 and to generate 25GW power from green and blue hydrogen by 2050 – a turning point for a country whose oil & gas export success provides more than 90% of its foreign revenues and 60% of its national budget.
“The beginning of Algeria’s great renewables shift came in three thrusts: with regulatory reform, creation of the new energy transition ministry METRE, and the new renewable energy company SHAEMS. These developments have laid the foundations for rich collaborations at both national and private sector levels for Algeria’s energy leaders and entrepreneurs in terms of sustainable policies and technologies to deploy across its abundant renewable energy resources,” said Mohammed.
With Algeria’s utility leader Sonelgaz set to attend the show as a VIP buyer, evidencing the country’s renewed commitment to building a renewable energy ecosystem, the comprehensive product portfolio and knowledge-sharing platforms at Middle East Energy Dubai will open important perspectives on conservation strategies and the development of hydrogen sectors.
And with the event also hosting industry-shaping technical sessions at the Global Energy & Utilities Forum and InterSolar Middle East Conference, the coming together of global expertise will offer new insights for innovators in small and medium enterprises who are now finding opportunities in Algeria’s evolving energy sector.
Mohammed added: “Our unique event platform provides Algeria’s energy professionals and innovators with the perfect venue to show how they are transforming their nation’s energy sector, while they gather useful information on next-generation solutions and best practices from MENA colleagues and technology leaders worldwide.”
MEE attendees will find a wide range of policy and technology solutions – from utility-scale to small scale renewables and distributed energy resources – on display and under discussion. They will enjoy access to high-level strategic panels, technical sessions, roundtable discussions and workshops.
Informa, organisers of the event, have confirmed over 500 global exhibitors will participate in the 47th edition of the energy showcase, with marquee brands including Lucy Electric, Cummins, Emirates Transformers, Ducab, Riyadh Cables Group and Bahra Cables Company set to showcase a range of solutions and technologies to accelerate the path to the energy transition.
Other confirmed panellists at the Forum include Stephan Gobert, Senior Vice President – Hydrogen AMEA, ENGIE; Michael Mair, VP Growth and Development, Europe, Middle East & Africa, Wood; Lina Osman, Head – Sustainable Finance, Africa & MENAP, Standard Chartered; Sabrin Rehman, Managing Director – Head of Sustainability, Middle East & Africa, HSBC; Maximilian Jarrett, Africa Program Manager, International Energy Agency; Sowunmi Olabole II, Office of the Senate, National Assembly – Nigeria; Michael Geissler, Chief Executive Officer, Berlin Energy Agency; Graham Hallett, Development Director, Marjan Island.
As part of the Forum, the focus of discussion will be on developing a roadmap to decarbonisation, an insight into the energy systems of the future, the green hydrogen opportunities in the MENA region, funding of the energy transition, the rise of sustainable finance, powering the African continent with renewable energy, grids of the future, energy efficiency focus and decarbonising industries.
In addition to Global Energy & Utilities Forum, a series of Technical Sessions will provide valuable knowledge on critical topics dominating the headlines within the energy community. World-class technical experts will lead sessions, sharing industry best practices across four core pillars of the energy sector, including Digitalisation & Smart Grids, Renewables, Green Hydrogen, and Energy Storage.
Rounding out the conferences at Middle East Energy Dubai is the InterSolar Middle East Conference, which this year focuses on photovoltaics, PV production technologies and solar thermal technologies. Since its foundation, this yearly conference at Middle East Energy has become the most important industry platform for manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, service providers and partners of the global solar industry.
As part of Informa’s commitment to providing the highest hygiene and safety levels, the event will again take place under the protocols introduced via the company’s Informa AllSecure health and safety mandate. The enhanced measures include 35 guidelines covering all aspects of cleaning and hygiene, social distancing measures, and the use of PPE, screening, and a track and trace in conjunction with local authorities.
Sponsors include Perkins, Baudouin, Newage Stamford AVK, and Rieloo UPS at this years’ event.
