The partnership will see the DoE sponsor various events throughout the week, helping drive its mission to transform the energy sector while ensuring environmental sustainability and operational efficiency.
“The Abu Dhabi Department of Energy is committed to spearheading efforts to transform the energy sector and ensure efficiency and sustainability across all our activities,” said H.E. Eng. Mohammed Juma Bin Jarsh Al Falasi, Undersecretary of the Abu Dhabi Department of Energy. “Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week undoubtedly holds significant opportunities for Abu Dhabi and the UAE to achieve their sustainability goals, all while cementing the country’s position as a global energy and sustainability capital.”
“Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week would not be the globally successful event it is today without the enthusiastic and heartfelt support we receive from stakeholders across the United Arab Emirates and in particular, Abu Dhabi Department of Energy, which is at the forefront of the implementation of the UAE Energy Strategy 2050,” said Mohamed Al Ramahi, CEO of Masdar.
Taking place from 11 to 18 January, the 2020 edition of Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week comprises an array of events including the World Future Energy Summit, Women in Sustainability, Environment, and Renewable Energy (WiSER) and the Youth 4 Sustainability forums.
Since 2008, the annual event has led the sustainability conversation in the UAE, while also drawing global attention and engagement. Attended by nearly 40,000 people from 170 countries in 2019, last year’s event saw the announcement of more than USD 11 billion worth of projects.
