Arabian Water & Power Forum, 23-25 September 2013
Forum Gathering Senior Government & Industry Representatives to Discuss Managing Energy Demand Across the Middle East
The Arabian Water & Power Forum, held under the patronage of HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Maktoum Bin Juma Al Maktoum and in partnership with the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy, will take place 23-25 September 2013 at The Address Dubai Marina, UAE. The Forum will bring together central policy makers, government figures and international investors to determine the next steps essential to matching water and power supply with demand across the Middle East.
As the economy in the Middle East continues to grow, the accumulating urbanisation of its population has resulted in an increase in the consumption of oil and gas. To ensure the long-term delivery of the volumes of energy demanded, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Kuwait and Oman are among the countries moving away from a dependence on fossil fuels and have declared their plans to produce at least 10% of electricity from renewable energy sources by 2020.
AWPF Event Producer, Gurpreet Hayre, when speaking about the upcoming Forum said: “AWPF will utilise the knowledge of government and industry leaders to examine how the optimisation of supply and management of energy demand can be achieved across the GCC using sustainable policies, technologies and projects. Innovations in sustainability will be at the core of discussions and company’s exceling in this area will be recognised at the prestigious AWPF Awards Ceremony held on Day One of the Forum.”
The CWC Group’s Arabian Water & Power Forum will examine the sustainable development of the water and power sector across the Arabian Gulf region, by debating and developing new policies and strategies for stimulating innovation. The annual Forum is the meeting place for key government and industry leaders interested in and currently involved in the Middle East energy sector.
