The 42nd edition of Middle East Electricity is underway with a key focus on the development and implementation of Smart Cities across the region

Dubai, UAE, February 16, 2017: Middle East Electricity (MEE), which opened yesterday at the Dubai World Trade Centre, has put innovation at the forefront of the 2017 edition, with a keen focus on smart innovations and the current market products and trends that come with it.

Hosted by the Ministry of Energy and in partnership with Dubai Municipality the event is showcasing a number of special features and content platforms designed to help the industry learn and develop in line with its goals to become smarter and more sustainable.

Speaking on the side lines of MEE, H.E. Suhail Mohammed Al Mazrouei, Minister of Energy for the UAE, said, “Middle East Electricity has made an invaluable contribution to our industry over the past forty-two years and continues to highlight the latest trends and innovations through its Smart Cities theme this year. As we put into practice ‘The UAE Energy Strategy 2050', announced at the beginning of 2017, to provide clean, secure, affordable and sustainable energy to all residents, the opportunities this exhibition provides are more important than ever.”

Driving the discussion is the ‘Energising the Smart City Conference' which takes place today (15 February). Opening remarks for today's conference were delivered by H.E Hussain Nasser Lootah, Director General, Dubai Municipality who updated the industry on a number of key initiatives that are to be implemented in the lead up to the strategic plan of 2021 which includes the roll out of Dubai Lamp, a blub that has an energy usage of 1 watt and a life of 15 years. He also discussed the roll out of Solar Lighting across a number of parks throughout Dubai, as well as the upcoming Desert Rose City – a fully sustainable mixed use development which with accommodate both Emirati and Expat residents and will produce energy through wind, solar and bio-thermal among other.

The fourth edition of the Future Generation Competition is also taking place, giving students from universities across the Middle East a platform to present their own projects and technologies around the theme of ‘Smart Cities'.
