2023 Energy & Sustainability Summit to take place in Dubai on 3 May

The event will comprise several panel discussions, presentations, fireside chats, as well as networking and sponsorship opportunities

The impact of COP28 on the regional construction industry, green hydrogen, and developing the GCC as a global hub for clean energy will be among the key themes at Big Project Middle East’s (BPME) 2023 Energy & Sustainability (E&S) Summit. The second edition of the annual event will take place on 3 May in Dubai, and will offer key insights from government and industry bodies, as well as green energy, construction and technology firms.

The E&S Summit is free to attend for industry professionals, and will comprise several panel discussions, presentations, and focused fireside chats from high profile regional personalities including key decisionmakers, while also offering highly value networking and sponsorship opportunities.

The first edition of the summit took place on 21 June in Dubai at St Regis – The Palm, in response to a pronounced GCC-wide drive towards green energy and sustainable development. The event saw participation from several regional organisations including the Emirates Green Building Council, The Red Sea Development Company, ECC and Saif Air Tech – A Fakhruddin Holding Company, and many others.

“The 2022 Energy & Sustainability Summit was a tremendous success, and we look forward to building on that event with the 2023 edition, as the Middle East continues its push towards clean energy and sustainable development. While much has already been said and done around these topics, there’s still a long road ahead, which is why we are eager for the 2023 E&S Summit to become a nexus of discussions and a driver of change,” said Jason Saundalkar, Head of Content at Middle East Construction News (MECN).

Clean energy and sustainable development feature heavily amongst GCC nations’ respective national agendas. Earlier this year, UAE President His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan announced 2023 as the ‘Year of Sustainability’.

Prior to this, it was announced that the 2023 UN Climate Change Conference (UNFCCC COP 28) would take place in Dubai, in the UAE, from 30 November to 12 December 2023. With the EXPO 2020 Dubai mega-event, sustainability was also a key topic, with the event organiser announcing that 121 buildings were LEED certified at the mega event.
