DUBAI: Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman of Dubai Civil Aviation Authority, Chief Executive of Emirates Group, Chairman of the Dubai Supreme Fiscal Committee and Chairman of the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy, on Tuesday inaugurated the industry-shaping Middle East Electricity (MEE) 2018.

Hosted by the UAE Ministry of Energy, and under the patronage of Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai, MEE returns to Dubai World Trade Centre, DWTC, amid soaring regional demand for power and increasing transformation towards clean, smart energy solutions.

Running until 8th March under the theme ‘Energising the Industry’, the 43rd edition of the event, is expected to attract more than 62,000 industry professionals.

Touring the 80,000 square feet exhibition, Sheikh Ahmed was joined by other senior officials and toured some of the latest innovations on display at the three-day mega show. Some 1,500 exhibitors from 66 countries, supported by 23 dedicated national pavilions, including Germany, the UK, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, China and more, are displaying the latest technologies, products and services across five dedicated sectors: Power Generation, Transmission and Distribution, Lighting, Solar and, for the first time, Energy Storage and Management.

With demand for power across the Gulf rising rapidly as a result of increasing populations, expanding economies and climate change, the GCC Power Market Report, prepared by Ventures Onsite for MEE, forecasts that Gulf countries will invest $131 billion in the sector in coming years.

“As a long-established weathervane for the constantly evolving regional power industry, hosting Middle East Electricity is a natural fit with the strategic objectives of the ministry,” Suhail Bin Mohammed Faraj Faris Al Mazrouei, Minister of Energy and Industry, said. “The UAE continues to lead the regional agenda in developing and driving growth across the robust regional power sector and we look forward to enhancing the country’s leading role through our enduring partnership with Middle East Electricity.”
