Shell holds energy efficiency tech event in the United Arab Emirates
The joint lubricant venture showcased new models for energy efficiency to its top 10 customers from across the Middle East, Central Asia and Pakistan (MECASTAN). Participants also had the opportunity to look at new ways to implement alternative renewable power solutions.
Participants included 120 delegates from major oil, maritime, construction, power, technology and industry companies in the MECASTAN region. The two-day tech forum, titled “The Future of Energy Supply,” focused on emerging technologies that can be leveraged together to maximize energy efficiency.
The goal is to address the interrelated issues of climate change, energy security and economic development.
“As the world’s leading producer of oil and gas, it is critical that this region takes the lead in developing solutions for the future of energy supply as demand rises,” Shell MECASTAN General Manager Amr Adel said. “Around the world, people are increasingly relocating to urban areas which has resulted in a growing need for energy supply. At the Shell Technology Leadership Event, we want to work with industry leaders and innovative minds to develop solutions that will help manage the world’s future energy needs."
