World's Leading Solar Advocates Will Visit UAE in January to Identify Ways to Ramp Up Global Energy Supplies

The world’s solar industry pioneers will be in the UAE in January to identify ways to ramp up their contribution to the global energy supply. Industry leaders will meet with the world's leading solar energy companies, financiers, energy buyers, and government policymakers at the Solar Expo & Clean Energy Forum – the MENA region's leading solar marketplace.

According to a recent report by the International Energy Agency, clean energy employment is “rapidly growing” and now accounts for more than half of all energy sector jobs. Hiring in clean energy has pushed energy sector employment globally above pre-pandemic levels – despite the oil and gas sector still struggling to recover from big layoffs in the initial stages of COVID-19. The Arab World will also see nearly US$700 billion worth of investment in renewable energy transition between 2020 and 2050, with a target to generate more than 70 Gigawatts of power from renewable energy by 2050. This, coupled with the recent COP 27 and upcoming COP 28, has propelled clean energy discussions across both public and private sectors.
