France holds the Number 2 spot in the ranking of the world’s largest electricity generators, thanks to EDF.
More than 25 companies from France will be exhibiting their products and services at the Middle East Electricity exhibition, which runs for three days in Dubai beginning tomorrow.
The exhibitors will cover the full range of the electricity industry, from equipment and applications for power generation, transmission and distribution to protection and security products, and lighting, said a statement from Business France, the national agency supporting the international development of the French economy.
According to Business France, the event is a chance for “a French sector of excellence that is both innovative and dynamic to enjoy the spotlight”. The companies are exhibiting under the aegis of the national trade development body in order to use the event as a “springboard… to expand in the broader Middle East, sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia”.
“Many opportunities exist in this very fast-growing market, driven by the staggering development in several sectors: retail distribution, transport, logistics, infrastructure and residential. With major international events such as the Dubai Expo 2020 to be hosted in the region, and the return of major real estate projects announced by public contractors, French experts attending the show will have many opportunities on which to seize,” said Business France in the statement.
Among the companies exhibiting in the exhibition’s Hall 7 at the Dubai World Trade Centre are AEG Power Solutions, GS Yuasa Battery France, Delta Box, Enerdis, JST Transformateurs and many others. France is home to companies recognised across the world in the electricity sector, whether electrical and telecom network operators, engineering companies, integrators, equipment manufacturers, component producers or ICT companies.
With such strong players, France is the seventh largest exporter of electrical equipment in the world and holds the second spot in the global rankings of the world’s largest electricity generators, said the statement.
