The event features international and regional experts and leaders from the government and private sector to discuss emerging trends and initiatives in the field of sustainable energy.
The Government of Ras Al Khaimah considers energy efficiency and adoption of renewable energy to be important drivers for the competitiveness and sustainability of its economy. In order to enhance dialogue within the industry and cross-learning opportunities across similar strategies in the region and in the world, Ras Al Khaimah Municipality announces the first RAK Energy Summit, held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Saud Bin Saqr Al Qasimi, UAE Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Ras Al Khaimah.
The first RAK Energy Summit will take place at the Al Hamra International Exhibition and Conference Center in Ras Al Khaimah on 4 – 5 October 2022. It will bring together international and regional experts and leaders from the government and the private sector to discuss emerging trends and initiatives in the field of sustainable energy.
The RAK Energy Efficiency and Renewables Strategy 2040 targets 30% electricity savings, 20% water savings and 20% renewable energy in the generation mix by 2040. The Strategy, already well underway through a multitude of programs and initiatives, connects with federal strategies and supports the UAE’s commitments to climate change mitigation as part of the UNFCCC.
Reem, the Energy Efficiency and Renewables Office of Ras Al Khaimah Municipality has underlined its appreciation of HVAC technologies when it comes to meeting its targets. Andrea Di Gregorio, Executive Director, Reem, Ras Al Khaimah Municipality, said, “There are plenty of opportunities for HVAC manufacturers and distributors who can deliver high standards of product quality and service levels. We would like to have them more present here and help us develop the local market. Our office in the Municipality doesn’t typically buy their products directly but it is prepared to connect supply and demand. Therefore, industry players who want to have more visibility of areas of opportunity can reach out to us. We are here to support.”
At the Summit, participants will discuss emerging trends in green buildings, building retrofits, efficient mobility, efficient water use and reuse, solar applications, energy from waste, and many other related topics. Besides presentations and panel discussions, the Summit will hold networking sessions and live demonstrations aimed at creating and contributing to the energy efficiency and renewable energy goals of the future.
