Ministry of Energy calls for participation from interested authors
H.E. Eng Suhail Al Mazrouei, the UAE Minister of Energy, has announced October 22 as the publication date of the second edition of the UAE State of Energy Report, in time for the International World Energy Day. According to a press communiqué, the announcement was made in the presence of H.E. Saeed Al Tayer, Managing Director and CEO of DEWA.
“In Columbia, the UAE Ministry of Energy presented the report as part of its bidding process to host the World Energy Congress in 2019 in Abu Dhabi,” Al Mazrouei said, “which we have succeeded in achieving because of the efforts of the teams of H.E. Dr Matar Al Neyadi, Undersecretary for Energy, and the contributions of our esteemed partners.”
The first-ever UAE State of Energy Report, released in October 2014, was the product of a partnership agreement between the Ministry of Energy and Dubai Carbon Centre of Excellence to develop a UAE-wide CO2 platform and then publish the results in a report, said the communiqué.
“The UAE State of Energy Report documents the UAE’s success stories in the energy sector, and we are happy to share it with the world,” said Waleed Salman, Chairman of Dubai Carbon Centre. “The publication has proven to facilitate the exchange of ideas and to bring together the key players of the energy sector to work towards a more efficient industry.”
As a knowledge-sharing tool, the report purportedly catalyzes innovation and supports the sustainable development of the federal energy sector.
The Ministry of Energy is said to have begun officially inviting sponsors and authors to participate in this year’s edition of the report. According to the communiqué, the editorial will be open until June 2015.
