From September 9th to 12th, global energy leaders will get together for the 24th edition of the triannual World Energy Congress in Abu Dhabi. It is the first time that the flagship event of the World Energy Council has taken place in a Middle Eastern country. The United Arab Emirates is undergoing a transition in its energy policies and is the first country in the region that is pursuing a long-term strategy to achieve a 50% contribution from clean energy sources to its energy mix. The World Energy Congress, attended by more than 15 000 participants, offers a platform for energy leaders and policy leaders to challenge existing mindsets and discuss the future of energy, its technology, innovation and jointly develop new strategies.
