Kuwait has one of the world’s highest per capita consumption rates of electricity. During the summer month when temperatures is around 50°C, building’s air conditioning accounts for 70% of Kuwait’s peak power demand and 50% of the annual energy consumptions.Over 70,000 residential buildings are projected to be built in Kuwait over 5 cities by year 2015.
With temperatures reaching 50°C in the summer, the need for cooling capacity in the Gulf States is enormous, necessitating more power production, accordingly more and more CO2 gas is emitted into the atmosphere, contributing to the Greenhouse phenomenon and the subsequent global warming hazards.
Power and District Cooling Summit brings together distinguished personnel from Utilities/Ministries and technology leaders to discuss and benchmark crucial issues on how to seize new opportunities and make it effective for the region.
The agenda is packed with in-depth real life case studies of ongoing and completed projects, keynote presentations, and interactive panel discussions.
