The Middle East energy landscape is undergoing a transformation resulting from technological, economic and geopolitical dynamics that have global impacts. In this 1st IAEE Middle East Symposium, leading global experts from industry, government and academia will convene to discuss the evolving dynamics of international energy markets, increased diversification of energy sources and global concerns for climate change that are shaping the Middle East energy outlook.
The Symposium, which will take place at the Khalifa University of Science and Technology, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, on December 16, 2019, is being prepared by an International Program Committee consisting of experts with knowledge of the Middle East energy and economic issues most critical to government and industry stakeholders. In this context, a series of plenary sessions are planned that will feature internationally established speakers and provide lively discussions and debates. In addition to its rich program and accompanying social functions, the symposium will provide a unique opportunity for networking among energy professionals from industry, government and academia.
Meaning 'Land of the Gazelle' in Arabic, Abu Dhabi was founded when a young antelope led a wandering tribe to fresh water, on an island with no more than 300 palm ('barasti') huts, a few coral buildings and the Ruler's fort.
This simple island settlement has since been transformed into the modern, cosmopolitan city of Abu Dhabi and the high-rise capital of the United Arab Emirates. Abu Dhabi is one of the safest cities in the world.
Abu Dhabi is finally back in the cool season in December with an average temperature of 21°C. Daytime averages reach a pleasant 26°C while the nights cool down to 15°C. The record high in Abu Dhabi in December is 33°C.
