Dubai Solar Show, Wetex opens today


Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa), is organising both the third Dubai Solar Show and the 20th Water, Energy, Technology, and Environment Exhibition (Wetex 2018), which will be held from October 23-25, at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
Both events are organised under the directives of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai, and under the patronage of HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai, Minister of Finance and President of Dewa.
The Dubai Solar Show will cover approximately 14,000 square metres attracting 125 exhibitors and more than 10 sponsors from around the world. The event will be held under the umbrellas of the fifth session of Green Week and the fifth session of the World Green Economy Summit (WGES).
The event will serve as an important platform for both government and private sectors to contract and build partnerships, review latest technologies in the solar sector and regional current and future projects, as well as identify market needs, and participate in solar energy projects and programmes.
“Organising the third Dubai Solar Show after the success of the second, highlights the UAE’s leadership in this field and its leading position in increasing the reliance on solar energy, transforming to a green economy that embraces sustainability in the regional environment, society, and economy. The UAE leads the region in shaping the future initiative, in line with the vision of its wise leadership. That is why we have invested heavily in solar energy, and set ambitious goals reinforced by innovative initiatives that contribute to these goals,” Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Managing Director and CEO of DEWA and Founder and Chairman of Wetex, said.
“The initiatives launched by our wise leadership aim to achieve global leadership in these fields, notably the Green Economy for Sustainable Development initiative, launched by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, to enhance green economy in the UAE, under the theme ‘Green Economy for Sustainable Development’, and the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050 that aims to transform Dubai into an international hub for clean energy and green economy, ” he added.
Al Tayer said that the Dubai Solar Show has special significance, as it provides a comprehensive view of the future of renewables and solar power, with the use of new technologies and innovations that will drive growth and development in this field.
