WETEX and Dubai Solar Show reflected the UAE’s and Dubai’s interest in renewable energy and sustainability
The 18th Water, Energy, Technology, and Environment Exhibition (WETEX) and the 1st Dubai Solar Show have successfully concluded. HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA), Founder and Chairman of WETEX said that both have reinforced their positions on the international map of specialised energy-related exhibitions.
“WETEX 2016 has achieved its objective on all three days by enhancing sustainability not only in the UAE but also in the region. Diversifying energy sources have taken a big chunk of discussions between exhibitors and visitors at a time when renewable energy and green development is on the agenda of so many countries in the world, including the UAE,” Al Tayer said.
WETEX and Dubai Solar Show reflected the UAE’s and Dubai’s interest in renewable energy and sustainability. They also show Dubai’s leading position in offering an opportunity to thousands of companies to promote their activities and services.
The inaugural Dubai Solar Show covered 13,000 square metres and attracted exhibitors from around the world. Dubai Solar Show proved to be a key platform for the public and private sectors to make deals, build partnerships, review the latest solar-energy technologies, learn about current and future projects in the region and market needs, and explore opportunities to take part in solar-energy projects and programmes.
The inaugural Dubai Solar Show was a successful initiative as part of the global trend to develop solar technologies and increase reliance on it to generate electricity. The show has allocated big spaces for companies to present their technologies and solutions that support solar and renewable energy.
The first three days of Green Week, included leading environmental events, notably WETEX, World Green Energy Summit and Dubai Solar Show, generated direct discussions among key stakeholders at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
