WBME to offer eco-friendly solutions to ME energy crisis

CMPi UAE's Working Buildings Middle East (WBME) - scheduled to take place on November 17-18 at Abu Dhabi's National Exhibition Centre - will focus on the operation and maintenance of energy-efficient buildings.

Exhibitors from Europe and North America will showcase products designed to create energy efficient buildings and demonstrate ways to deal with global warming. Many of the products on display will be straightforward, off-the-shelf, residential and commercial building efficiency measures that have been designed to reduce energy consumption in new buildings and, ultimately, save thousands of dollars.

"Many times, complicated problems require the simplest of solutions"? explained Chris Fountain, event director of WBME. "One of the most important questions facing those attempting to solve the climate change crisis is how to reduce CO2 emissions dramatically. The answers will be on display at [WBME] in Abu Dhabi."

Increasing demand for energy coupled with a growing population and a disproportionately high level of petrol consumption has resulted in the UAE having the world's largest per capita carbon footprint. Buildings are commonly understood to be the largest consumers of energy and with power supplies trying to keep pace with the region's rapid development, a massive energy vacuum is the result.

WBME will introduce eco-friendly solutions to be used at the early building stages and, hopefully, will provide a forum in which local and international companies can address the increasingly dire Middle Eastern energy market.
