For the first year Convert will be partecipating at World Future Energy Summit 2018 that will take place in Abu Dhabi from the 15th to the 18th of january 2018.

The United Arab Emirates has announced plans to invest $163bn in projects in a bid to generate almost half the country’s power needs from renewable sources.

The UAE is a top oil exporter, but has taken steps to reduce its dependency on fossil fuels to generate power, including building nuclear facilities.

The country’s energy mix by 2050 will comprise 44 percent from renewables, 38 percent from gas, 12 percent from clean fossils and six percent from nuclear energy, said Sheikh Mohammed, who is also the UAE’s vice president and the ruler of the emirate of Dubai.
In June, Dubai announced plans to build a 1,000 megawatt (MW) solar power plant by 2030, the year it aims to turn to renewable energies for 25 percent of electricity needs.
In 2013, Abu Dhabi opened the world’s largest operating plant of concentrated solar power, which has the capacity to provide electricity to 20,000 homes.

The World Future Energy Summit is the foremost platform dedicated to innovation, to the digitalisation and transformation in the global energy mix that will take place in Abu dhabi from the 15th to the 18th of january.
Over four fully packed business days, hundreds of international suppliers, decision makers and thought leaders come together to network, do business and gain insights into the latest industry trends and advancements across all energy sectors.
