ACWA Power, a leading developer, investor and operator of power generation and desalinated water plants worldwide, will showcase its portfolio of leading renewable energy and water desalination projects at the at 22nd Water, Energy, Technology and Environment exhibition (WETEX) as a Titanium Sponsor. Unlike any of its former editions, WETEX 2020 is launching virtually and will be the first ever carbon-neutral, 3D exhibition in the Middle East and North Africa on Water, Energy, Sustainability and Innovation.
Cementing its role as a global accelerator of energy transformation, this year at WETEX 2020, ACWA Power will be exhibiting its record-breaking projects that played an instrumental role in lowering renewable energy tariff levels and opened new opportunities in energy efficiency and water production through a virtual 3D interactive stand. The milestone projects will include Shuaa Energy, (MBR Solar Park Phase II); Noor Energy 1 (MBR Solar Park Phase IV); ACWA Power’s newest win – Shuaa Energy 3 (MBR Solar Park Phase V); Umm Al Quwain IWP; and Taweelah IWP, the largest desalination project in the world.
As always, we are pleased to play a strategic role in one of the largest and most important global water, environment, and energy exhibitions led by the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA). We are honoured to have established a robust partnership with DEWA to develop and operate vital projects that promote the sustainable development of the United Arab Emirates and fortify Dubai’s position as a global hub for the green economy, all the while contributing towards Dubai’s ambitious Clean Energy Strategy 2050 to increase its renewable energy share to 75% by the year 2050. The partnership between ACWA Power and DEWA serves as a global module for successful public-private partnerships geared towards supplying energy at a cost efficient and reliable rate.
This year, WETEX is going to be more critical than ever as a result of the increasing economic implications incited by the COVID-19 pandemic. Prioritising innovation today is key to unlocking postcrisis growth – and WETEX is the ideal platform that gathers like-minded stakeholders, governments and companies who are eager to explore and reciprocate insights and visions on forward-looking smart technologies and electrification solutions for a collective prosperous future.Mohammad Abunayyan, ACWA Power Chairman
