NEW YORK, May 02 /CSRwire/ - The World Energy Forum is holding a high-level international conference of leaders from all energy sectors commemorating the 2012 United Nations International Year of Sustainable Energy for All. This historical event will take place October 22-24, 2012 in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates, with a three-day program of high-level round tables, plenaries, network events, World Energy Awards, country pavilions and exhibitions, and visits to Dubai’s smart buildings.
Under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arabs Emirates and Ruler of Dubai, all interested parties and stakeholders are invited. “We in the UAE greatly value this opportunity to share with the world leaders and decision makers, our vision for peace, stability and sustainable development,” His Highness said.
Participants including Heads of State and Energy Ministers of the United Nations member states, international organizations, and business leaders, will exchange new ideas on global energy issues of paramount importance. The discussions will highlight national and international policies, technological innovations, and business and industry opportunities while exploring ways to strengthen public-private partnerships across diverse sectors of energy.
The conference will also serve as a unique opportunity for all energy sectors to work together toward social responsibility for the underserved, including an estimated one and a half billion people without electricity. Often in areas where energy services are available, millions of poor people are still unable to pay for them.
