Mena Future Energy & Decarbonisation Summit

28 January 2021

Type of Summit: Virtual

Event Date:  24 February 2021


The past 12 months have again shown the volatility and changing nature of oil and gas demands. Disrupted global supply chains highlight the need for localised, reliable energy solutions. But what does it mean to transform one of the world’s largest, most established oil-focused energy regions for the low-carbon future? While oil remains one of the pillars of the economy, ambitious strategies are needed to revolutionise the industry and set us up for a future in the green world.

Future Energy & Decarbonisation will push the boundaries of the norm when it comes to renewable energy. From true green generation to 4IR tech, renewable investment to carbon capture, this is the event to lay out the pathway to 2030 and beyond.
