Exhibitors sign-up for World Future Energy Summit 2014

The world’s leading innovators in clean energy are signing up to exhibit at the 7th World Future Energy Summit, hosted by Masdar, January 20-22 next year as a part of Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week.

Organiser of WFES 2014, Reed Exhibitions, has announced that 90% of exhibition space has already been sold for next year’s event, with strong interest in the new Sustainable Living Area that will provide energy and water -efficient solutions for urban living, including a full-size eco-home, eco-transport models, and a fully-functioning hotel room sponsored by Rotana Hotels, and designed and built by Genesis Manazil.

WFES’s show director, Naji El Haddad said: “Investment in renewable energy, particularly within the Middle East North Africa (MENA) region, is growing as more and more governments and private partners commit to large-scale clean energy projects.

“Indeed, the recent WFES insight report into solar energy development in MENA shows the huge potential for developing a large solar industry in the region due to its natural advantages of abundant sunshine and a strong power grid and road network. More importantly, the industry is strongly supported by governments that are committed to the development of clean energy sources to reduce their domestic reliance on fossil fuels.”

Already renowned for showcasing the latest in clean energy technologies, WFES 2014 will once again be the international event that the sustainability industry looks to for new innovations, with exciting new exhibits planned and many exhibitors confirming they will launch breakthrough products.

Next year’s seventh edition of the World Future Energy Summit will be co-located with the second edition of the International Water Summit and the inaugural EcoWASTE exhibition, also hosted by Masdar, at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, and is the centerpiece of Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week from 19-22 January 2014.

World Future Energy Summit

The World Future Energy Summit (WFES) is the world’s foremost event dedicated to renewable energies, energy efficiency and clean technologies. WFES will include a world-class conference, an international exhibition, the Project & Finance Village, the Young Future Energy Leaders programme, as well as a number of corporate meetings and concurrent social events.

Hosted by Masdar, Abu Dhabi’s multi-faceted renewable energy company, and staged at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, the WFES Conference attracts world leaders, international policy makers, industry experts, investors from the public and private sector and media, who gather in Abu Dhabi to discuss practical and sustainable solutions to future energy challenges.

WFES 2014 will be held from January 20-22 next year, and participants will be able to learn about the latest breakthrough achievement in solar technology: a new world record for the conversion of sunlight into electricity with 44.7% efficiency.

The feat was recently announced by a group of German and French researchers – Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems, Soitec, CEA-Leti and the Helmholtz Center Berlin – who collaborated for over three years to further reduce the costs of solar electricity. The new record comes only a few months after the team’s previous achievement of 43.6% was publicised back in May 2013.

Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems will be present at WFES 2014 as an exhibitor in the German pavilion and provide additional insight on the collected expertise that made it possible to produce the improved materials, structures and procedures responsible for the much awaited falling cost of solar power.

Join the WFES 2014 for a world of conceptual and technological innovations that are sure to change the future of energy. For more information click here.
