The Masdar Institute of Science and Technology, an independent, research-driven graduate-level university focused on advanced energy, and sustainable technologies, on Saturday announced it hosted a symposium titled, “Energy Efficiency and Renewables: Building Technology – Made in Germany.”
The event was part of a series of symposiums in Dubai and Abu Dhabi organised by the German Emirati Joint Council for Industry and Commerce (AHK), under the auspices of the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy. Presentations at the event covered building codes, energy efficiency and renewable energy solutions. The event also provided German companies with an opportunity to learn about the local market and establish new business relationships with local companies.
Delivering the opening remarks, Dr Steve Griffiths, Vice President for Research and Interim Associate Provost, Masdar Institute, said: “Hosting this event at Masdar Institute demonstrates our commitment to supporting innovation in clean energy technology with key UAE partner countries such as Germany. This event will provide an important exchange of knowledge about renewable energy and energy efficiency practices and technologies with the aim of facilitating further collaboration and business partnerships between Germany and the UAE.”
In her remarks, Dr Dalia Abu Samra Rohte, Deputy Chief Executive Officer and Director – Abu Dhabi Office, Regional Coordinator Business Development, AHK, highlighted her group’s cooperation with Masdar Institute. She also positioned the symposium into the context of the German export initiative, energy efficiency and renewables sectors, and pointed out the potential for German-Emirati cooperation in these areas.
