The World Future Energy Summit (WFES) is one of the world’s foremost events dedicated to renewable energies, energy efficiency and clean technologies. This yearly event includes a large-scale Conference, an international Exhibition, the Project & Finance Village, the Young Future Energy Leaders program, Zayed Future Energy Prize as well as a number of corporate meetings and concurrent social events. The event is hosted by Masdar, Abu Dhabi’s multi-faceted renewable energy company, and staged at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.
Building on the high profile successes of WFES 2013, the 7th annual gathering of future energy’s world leaders will be home to brilliant minds and inspiring thinkers for three days of expert debate and world class innovation in the heart of Abu Dhabi.
This year, the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership REEEP is again present to connect with other players in the field as well as to showcase our impressive portfolio of supported clean energy projects and our work in knowledge management and open data. REEEP/REIL will host a plenary session on day 3 (22 Jan, in the morning) again – James Cameron will moderate and REEEP’s Director General Martin Hiller will speak. In addition to this, there will be a data-related session with IT and Operations Director Florian Bauer.
REEEP also attended the fourth session of the IRENA Assembly (January 13th-14th); the Assembly launched the RE-Map 2030, a roadmap towards doubling the share of renewables in 16 years.
WFES 2014 will present energy sector stakeholders with a unique opportunity to meet with their peers, exchange technology, share best practice and form business partnerships that will further promote the global effort for a better future.
