The World Future Energy Summit (WFES) will take place in Abu Dhabi from 15-18 January, 2018.

Part of Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week (ADSW), the eleventh WFES will showcase and discuss solutions and innovations that will transform how energy is created, stored and consumed around the world.

Taking place at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, more than 30,000 visitors including investors, innovators, experts and policy makers from approximately 175 countries are expected to attend the summit, which is hosted by Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company, Masdar.

Mohamed Jameel Al Ramahi, chief executive officer of Masdar, said: “Over the last 12 months we have seen the growth of the renewable energy sector continue to accelerate, thanks to further advances in technology, greater access to financing and more supportive regulations. Today, the market potential for clean technologies is vast, but this entails challenges as well as opportunities.

“The World Future Energy Summit is playing a critical role in maintaining the forward momentum the renewables sector has witnessed in recent years, providing a platform for high-level debate and collaboration,” added Al Ramahi. “In January, government and industry leaders will once again convene in Abu Dhabi, placing the UAE and the region at the heart of the global energy transformation," he added. 

UAE authorities and industry leaders including the Ministry of Energy, Dubai Electricity & Water Authority (DEWA), Abu Dhabi Water & Electricity Authority (ADWEA), Abu Dhabi Chamber of Commerce, Emirates Global Aluminium and Emirates Nuclear Energy Company will participate alongside global businesses including GE, TOTAL and Siemens.
