Away from nuclear energy and fossil fuels towards renewables and more energy efficiency – this fundamental change is the core of the German Energy Transition and includes investments for the extension of renewable energy sources and grid infrastructure. Today, almost one third of German electricity comes from wind, solar and biomass. Furthermore, Germany has been developing many new technologies to continuously improve its level of energy efficiency.
At the same time, the demand for energy is growing rapidly in the Arab world. The electrical power alone is to be increased by 50% from 2015 to 2020 in order to ensure supply reliability. Even though they still avail from their affluence in conventional resources like oil and gas, numerous Arab countries have ambitious plans to diversify energy resources and to increase energy efficiency. With their experience and state of the art technology, German companies can offer a sustainable contribution to this development.
To further strengthen and expand the promising Arab-German business relations in the energy sector, the Ghorfa Arab-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry in cooperation with Arab and German institutions is organizing the
8th Arab-German Energy Forum
at Hotel Adlon Kempinski in Berlin
November 28th-29th, 2017.
The event is held under the patronage of the Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Energy, H.E. Brigitte Zypries, who will inaugurate the conference.
The exclusive Forum has established itself as the most prominent information and networking platform for Arab and German companies in the energy sector. More than 300 experts from industry, politics, diplomacy and science will discuss latest trends, projects and cooperation opportunities. The conference presents a great opportunity to exchange ideas with high-ranking decision makers and potential business partners.
We are looking forward to welcoming you to the 8th Arab-German Energy Forum.
