Show Director's Letter for September 2012

As we prepare for the sixth edition of the World Future Energy Summit (WFES), taking place from January 15-17, the Summit is now firmly established as the foremost annual meeting promoting the advancement of future energies and sustainable technologies.

The decision to host the International Renewable Energy Conference in Abu Dhabi (ADIREC) at WFES 2013 is further evidence of the Summit’s global stature.

Convened by the international policy network REN21, this biennial event attracting government decision makers, corporate chief executives, large-scale investors and the most respected voices in civil society has been touring global cities since the first IREC in Bonn, Germany in 2004.

Now Abu Dhabi will be the focal point for the IREC debate on sustainable development, energy security and climate change, as well as the critical need for innovation to intensify the rate of adoption of sustainable technologies.

‘Powering the Future of Energy Innovation’ will be the central theme of both the Abu Dhabi International Renewable Conference and WFES. And with thousands of attendees expected from around 140 countries, including heads of state, official delegations and hundreds of conference speakers and exhibitors, the Summit will once again be providing the ideal environment for innovation to bloom.

Access is the key ingredient here – access to finance, technology, research, and the decision makers behind the new projects and policies making business growth a reality. The introduction of a digital voting system for conference delegates at next year’s conference will also provide access to a new level of insight on future energy developments.

Every year WFES is gaining momentum as a global marketplace for the future energy sector. So it’s time to get involved. Whether you are a multinational firm or a local startup, a research student or a multi-billion dollar investment fund, a renewables expert or an industry novice, you have an important contribution to make to the advancement of future energy and sustainable technologies.

Visit to confirm your participation in the 2013 World Future Energy Summit in Abu Dhabi today.

Yours sincerely,

Naji Haddad
Show Director
