Siemens will provide a glimpse into the digital future through interactive displays from the company’s technology portfolio next week at the 10th edition of the World Future Energy Summit (WFES), part of Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week.

Visitors will have the chance to experience Siemens’ digital solutions, aimed at empowering energy industries to achieve efficiency, productivity and reliability gains.

The company will demonstrate its digital capabilities through the microgrid table and various augmented reality displays. The microgrid table enables visitors to digitally model an energy system that integrates power generated from renewables and traditional sources of energy without sacrificing grid stability. Maintaining stability is increasingly important in today’s energy mix, which features a growing share of renewables and where it is often necessary to compensate for fluctuations in power supply.

WFES is held at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center (ADNEC) 16-19 January, 2016 .

The annual conference will also see Siemens executives participating in panel discussions around different topics. On January 17th, Dietmar Siersdorfer, CEO of Siemens Middle East and UAE, will shed light on the company’s de-carbonization strategy during a panel entitled ‘Effective government and business strategies for implementing the Paris Climate Agreement’.

“Siemens is committed to enhancing business and society by connecting the physical and virtual worlds, and we look forward to showcasing the benefits of digitalisation in driving efficiency and sustainability,” said Siersdorfer. “As the world grapples with climate change challenges, we are eager to discuss the responsibility that companies have towards de-carbonisation, as well as our own target to become net carbon neutral by 2030.”
