The 13th POWER-GEN Middle East Conference and Exhibition will take place 4-6 October 2015 at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) in the UAE
Under the patronage of H.E. Suhail Mohamed Al Mazrouei, minister of energy, POWER-GEN Middle East will bring together regional and international power sector leaders from the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region as well as other countries around the globe to design and implement the course of power and electricity for 2015 and beyond.
The opening remarks at the event would be presented by Nigel Blackaby, director of conferences at PennWell Corporation.
Event director Feraye Gurel said, “In the GCC, power generating capacity will need to rise by an estimated 64 GW to 176.5 GW by 2020, requiring an investment of US$40bn to US$45bn. So far, 75 GW of renewable energy projects worth US$200bn are already in the pipeline, making the region a global power player in the sector.
“Under the theme ‘Sharing Technology Innovation’, the 2015 edition of POWER-GEN Middle East will address key issues affecting the region’s electricity market and provide pioneering and practical solutions to expand energy efficiency, technological excellence and implementation of smart solutions tailored to the Middle East’s power industry.”
The keynote speakers for POWER-GEN Middle East 2015 Conference include representatives from the industry’s leading utilities and companies including Abu Dhabi Water & Electricity Authority, Bahrain Electricity & Water Authority, Masdar, Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems and Saudi Electricity Company.
This year, attendees will have the choice of 19 strategic and technical Conference Sessions as well as two new components on the exhibition floor — a dedicated Exhibitor Presentation Theatre, which will feature live exhibitor demonstrations, and a new Business Matchmaking Service.
