Renewable Energy in the GCC: What is Possible?

Tuesday 14 February 13:30 - 14:30 Dubai World Trade Centre, Dubai, UAE

Breakbulk Main Stage

Ambitious targets to increase renewable energy capacity is changing the nature of global projects. Despite the historical and current focus on O&G in the region, the Middle East is following suit and seeing many renewable energy projects coming online. Solar power is strong in the region due to the sunny, long days and Abu Dhabi is building its first offshore wind farm. Outside of solar and wind, we are set to see many more hydrogen, LNG and ammonia projects coming up. The big question is, what is the potential for renewable energy in the region and what forms will we see taking centre stage looking ahead?
