Power expo to highlight sustainable practices

October 2011

SEVENTEEN power, water, and energy projects in the Middle East, valued at $11.9 billion, are surging ahead, according to new research revealed in the build-up to the Power + Water Middle East Leaders’ Forum. The event runs alongside the Power + Water Middle East exhibition, taking place from October 16 to 18 at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

“Growing population, fast-paced industrialisation, and investments pouring back into the construction sector are among the prime factors pushing the electricity demand in the region and thus, resulting in a promising growth for the electricity sector with huge future potential,” said Anita Mathews, exhibition director.

“The renewable energy sector in particular is seen as an area of immense growth in the region, particularly as global warming and spiralling oil prices have forced world leaders to plan ahead for more sustainable forms of energy production,” she adds.

Presented in partnership with Abu Dhabi Water and Electricity Authority (Adwea), the Power + Water Leaders’ Forum is back after a successful inaugural year in 2010, and will discuss developments in the field of ‘Developing Sustainable Business Practices’.

The one-day conference will include presentations of eminent speakers from the US Department of Energy, ABB Consulting, the UK Energy Research Centre, WS Atkins, Oracle Utilities, and Alliance for Water Stewardship.

More than 100 exhibitors have signed up for Power + Water Middle East, which has established itself as the premier meeting place for industry professionals wishing to network with local and international companies offering solutions to the power generation, water and nuclear energy industries.
