Intersolar Middle East will open today at Dubai World Trade Centre (Monday), with more than 100 exhibitors from 21 countries taking part in what has been billed as one of the most powerful events for the solar industry in the Middle East.
The first day of the international event will see Energy Ministers and international experts representing countries and organisations with a combined 5.6 GW in installed solar power capacity – enough to power almost 1 million homes – address the Global Solar Leaders’ Summit. The Summit will focus on ‘Powering a Renewable Energy Future’, including the markets, policies, technology, and project finance required to support industry growth.
Ben Hill, Vice President for Tesla Energy – Europe and Africa will speak on the future of energy storage and how batteries can revolutionise the solar industry on day two of the event (Tuesday). In addition, visitors to the show will be able to catch a glimpse of some of the latest solar technologies, products, and services from some of the biggest names in the sector, including GE, Solarworld, Huawei, Siel Middle East, Microtron, Fronius, and many more.
The winning entries of the 2016 Young Leaders’ Innovation Challenge will be selected. The Challenge recognises aspiring future energy leaders and is intended to encourage students across the United Arab Emirates to contribute to global commitments made through the historic Paris Agreement at COP21.
Intersolar Middle East will be held on Za’abeel Hall 6 at Dubai World Trade Centre from 19 to 21 September 2016.
