Qatar is expected to renew its commitment towards promoting environment-friendly technology and renewable sources of energy at the ‘Power Qatar Summit 2017’ to be held on 13-14 November, 2017 at The Ritz Carlton, Doha.

Qatar is on track to pursuing alternate sources of energy and the Minister of Energy and Industry, HE Dr Mohammed bin Saleh Al Sada, recently announced that the Qatar's energy sector would focus more on renewable energy. The country’s energy sector is contributing significantly to achieving a substantial growth and diversity in the Qatari economy.

With the energy industry in the region having undergone a massive transformation, the Power Qatar Summit will focus on the progress and future developments in the power sector in Qatar. The summit will feature over 40 international and regional experts, including Frank Wouters, director, EU-GCC Clean Energy Network and Dr Abdul Majeid Haddad, regional climate change coordinator manager of implementation, United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) among others.

The agenda will focus on relevant topics including energy digitalisation, integration of renewable and decentralised energy, cyber-security for energy and utilities, exploring waste-to-energy technologies, among many others.
