Dubai Global Energy Forum 2011 - 17-19 April 2011

Under the patronage of HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, according to the strategy of Dubai to address the issues concerning the future of renewable and alternative energy and oil and gas markets and in alignment with the strategy of the Supreme Council of Energy, which is based on ensuring energy supply, providing energy sources and diversifying them (such as peaceful nuclear energy and clean coal as alternative sources of energy in the Emirate of Dubai), HH Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman of the Supreme Council of Energy announced the launch of the Dubai Global Energy Forum 2011 under the theme of "Energy Challenges and Opportunities for a Sustainable Future." The Forum will be held in Dubai, UAE and will take place on 17-19 April 2011.

The Forum aims to provide a platform for a select group of energy experts and decision makers to exchange views on the different policies of energy, both regionally and internationally, from technical, commercial, financial and regulatory viewpoints. This includes technologies, investment opportunities, economic diversification, market indicators and maximizing investment revenues in the fields of energy, particularly oil, gas alternative and renewable energy. In addition, the Forum seeks to share current and future policies and best practices as applied by international major companies. The Forum will also address the most important issues of environment and sustainability that affects both the region and the world. This Forum, held in the Emirate of Dubai, is the first global event related to energy matters which is one of the most vital sectors in the world.

HH Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman of the Supreme Council of Energy said: “The Forum is going to focus on major topics that will address effective policies in the field of energy, available opportunities, relating to the future outlook of renewable and alternative sources of energy and methods of exploring them and growth possibilities, such as nuclear energy’s contribution to sustainable development. Sessions will deal with the specific issues in each track through in-depth analyses. Also, attendees will be provided with detailed explanations and opportunities for discussion about the future challenges of energy.”

“A great number of national and top global researchers, scientists and analysts will participate in the Forum and discuss, for three days, the different policies of energy both regionally and internationally from the technical, commercial, financial and regulatory aspects. Other areas include technologies, investment opportunities, economic diversification, market indicators, maximizing investment revenues in the fields of energy and discussing the most important issues of environment and sustainability. The subsequent research and findings will be published in two languages – English and Arabic – on the Forum’s website. In this context, it gives me great pleasure to announce that the Forum’s website has been launched today: www.dgef.ae. This website will hold all the major tracks and all the related information, in addition to the plenary, the keynote speakers and participants,” said HH Sheikh Ahmed.

“The Forum will shed light on the challenges and opportunities for the energy sector, which are based on energy security for supply and demand, foreseeing the ever-increasing demand for, and the continuous governance of, the energy sector. We hope that this Forum will provide effective solutions for the energy sector” said HH Sheikh Ahmed.

HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Vice Chairman of the Supreme Council of Energy said, “Organising such a Forum supports the Supreme Council’s mission to ensure the provision of all of the future needs for energy of the growing economy in Dubai, by securing primary sources of energy at reasonable costs, and mitigating the negative effects that causes harm to environment. Also, this Forum integrates with the effective planning of the energy sector and setting the most appropriate programmes to meet Dubai’s future needs of energy, contributing to developing and improving Dubai’s strategic energy plan,” said HE Al Tayer.

HE Saeed Al Tayer emphasized the fact that organizing this Forum will benefit the national and international markets with insights and outcomes that will support the use of peaceful nuclear energy for sustainable development, building on recent changes to make the best use of its technologies and minimizing its risks. Also, the Forum will tackle a number of legal and regulatory issues for all nuclear energy stakeholders.

“We have formed an Advisory Committee, made up of a number of experienced and proficient people in the field of energy. We have also formed other sub-committees, such as the Financial Committee, the Media Committee, and the Public Relations Committee. These Committees are responsible for making arrangements and preparations necessary for running and managing the Forum effectively and professionally,” said HE Al Tayer.

“The Supreme Council of Energy pays great attention to the important issues of the energy sector, such as power generation and water desalination according to the goal of enhancing Dubai’s production capacity to keep pace with the growing demand for power in the Emirate.” H.E concluded.
