Sheikh Ahmed Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Second Deputy Ruler of Dubai, on Wednesday inaugurated the 25th Water, Energy, Technology and Environment Exhibition (WETEX) and Dubai Solar Show (DSS), the region’s largest sustainability and clean energy technology exhibition.

Organised by the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) under the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, this year’s event is themed ‘At the Forefront of Sustainability’. Spread over 78,000 square metres, the 2023 WETEX and DSS features the participation of over 2,600 companies from 62 countries, in addition to 76 local and international sponsors.

The exhibition includes 24 international pavilions from 16 countries. "Under the guidance of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai is advancing towards its target of carbon neutrality by 2050, with significant initiatives such as the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, the world's largest single-site solar park. Our sustainability initiatives align with our leadership’s visionary development strategy to harmonise economic growth and environmental conservation.

As the UAE prepares to host the UN climate conference COP28 this month, Dubai continues to accelerate its efforts to enhance sustainability, drive innovation and foster partnerships for a more eco-conscious future.

The WETEX and Dubai Solar Show, a key event in the global sustainable energy sector, further underscores Dubai's commitment to climate action and sustainable economic development,” said Sheikh Ahmed Bin Mohammed.

The exhibition, which marks its silver jubilee this year, assumes particular significance in the UAE's Year of Sustainability. Showcasing the latest in renewable and clean energy and environmental technologies, it serves as a platform for knowledge exchange and highlights Dubai's exceptional investment opportunities in the sustainability sector.
