The Abu Dhabi National Energy Company PJSC announced that it will be the official host of the World Utilities Congress - a new global exhibition and conference addressing the future of low carbon power and water supplies.
The event will take place in Abu Dhabi in May 2022 and will be supported by the UAE’s Ministry of Energy & Infrastructure, Abu Dhabi Department of Energy, Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi, Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation and Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company.
The event is an opportunity for the global power and water industry to converge and discuss trends and technologies impacting future power and water demand.
The focus will be on the proactive measures for decarbonisation, curbing carbon emissions and attracting the long-term capital investment needed for a sustainable future.
Utilities are already at the heart of delivering global reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, whilst keeping the world supplied with vital energy and water.
The challenge to decarbonise is immense and requires sector leaders to share knowledge and most importantly – work together. Coming six months after COP26, the event will provide a platform to help the industry reflect on the next phase.
Suhail Mohamed Al Mazrouei, Minister of Energy and Infrastructure, said: “The ministry’s objectives include strengthening the country’s focus towards renewable energy or clean alternative energy that uses safe, environmentally friendly and reliable technology in line with the UAE Energy Strategy 2050.
“Our strategic recommendations for the future show that increasing investments in renewable energy projects will allow us to make a very significant impact in future-proofing the energy sector and prioritising renewable production technologies.”
