|Venue:||Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre|
Abu Dhabi, UAE
The inaugural World Future Energy Summit in 2008 was heralded as ‘the future of energy’ and the first major international conference and exhibition to address all aspects of sustainable energy solutions. As the largest global investor in sustainable energy and with the support of the Masdar Initiative, Abu Dhabi proved an unrivalled environment for international companies to reach key stakeholders investing in future energy projects around the world. With over 11,000 attendees from 77 countries around the world, including 423 international and regional members of press, the response to the summit has been outstanding.
In April 2006, Abu Dhabi took a bold and historic decision to embrace renewable and sustainable energy technologies.
As the first major hydrocarbon-producing nation to take such a step, it has established its leadership position by launching Masdar, a global cooperative platform for open engagement in the search for solutions to some of mankind’s most pressing issues: energy security, climate change and truly sustainable human development.
In order to achieve the long-term goals of Masdar it was deemed essential to pool together the highest level of expertise, investors and suppliers – hence the birth of the World Future Energy Summit.
