Middle East Energy, the largest and most comprehensive energy event in the Middle East and Africa, has announced new dates for the event

The event will now run from 17-19 April.

This is due to adverse weather conditions, the organisers said.

“Due to unprecedented weather conditions, Middle East Energy will not open today and will postpone its scheduled opening to tomorrow, Wednesday 17th April at 10:00 am. The event will be extended for an additional day on Friday 19th April, with opening hours from 09:00 am until 3:00pm,” the statement read.

New arenas for exploration

The event will open tomorrow with its most extensive knowledge-sharing programme yet, alongside a focused agenda on planning pathways to energy security and sustainability.

Dr Feras Alasali, director of the Renewable Energy Centre, assistant professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Jordan’s Hashemite University, and a prominent industry speaker, addressed “Analysing smart grid resilience under cyber-physical threats”. Dr Feras said the university will be actively seeking partnerships and collaborations from the event.

“Our focus is on encouraging collaborations with local and international entities to enhance the resilience and cybersecurity of smart grids, particularly in the Middle East,” Dr Feras said. “By engaging with industry leaders, technology providers, and research institutions, we can exchange knowledge, leverage innovative technologies, and collectively address the unique challenges faced by the regional energy landscape.

“These collaborations can contribute significantly to the overall energy ecosystem by advancing research and development, implementing dynamic cybersecurity measures, and promoting the adoption of sustainable practices. Through these partnerships, we will strive to strengthen the region's energy infrastructure, accelerate the integration of renewable energy sources, and contribute to a more secure, efficient, and sustainable energy future.”

Organisers anticipate the 2024 edition will surpass last year’s record-breaking onsite order book valued in excess of US$1.86bn.
