Dubai, UAE: Under the patronage of H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, The Dubai Supreme Council of Energy (DSCE) has announced launching the third edition of Emirates Energy Award (EEA) 2016-2017 to be held under the new theme, “Innovative Solutions for Clean Energy”.
