    Delivering critical utility-scale solar PV projects in the Middle East

    Advanced Conferences & Meetings (ACM) is launching the Utility Scale Solar Summit on 14-15 November 2017 in Beirut, which will focus on delivering critical utility-scale solar PV projects in the region.
    The Utility Scale Solar Summit will explore different solar and wind solutions to encourage renewable energy production.
    Excellent opportunities for the solar technology industry in Lebanon

    • The Lebanese Center for Energy Conservation (LCEC) estimates the renewable energy market size to be between USD 300 to USD 400 Million in 2016 alone.
    • In January 2017, the Ministry of Energy and Water launched a call for Expression of Interest (EOI) to build Solar Photovoltaic (PV) farms in Lebanon as part of the National Renewable Energy Action Plan (NREAP 2016 – 2020). The objective is to be nationally producing 767 ktoe of renewable energy in 2020, and given the high potential of development for solar PV farms in Lebanon, the NREAP targets 150 MW of PV farms installations.
    • Lebanon plans to bulk up on renewable-energy assets beyond just rooftop solar in a move that could wean reliance on fossil fuels and avoid blackouts.
    • Renewable energy in 2020 will represent 12 percent of the Lebanon’s total electricity production and this will lead to a drop in the oil bill.

    The Utility Scale Solar Summit is the pivotal place for Middle Eastern, European and North Africa utilities to further develop new relationships to win business. The strategic programme will be led by utility solar companies from the region, international EPCs, O&Ms from the international community. Experts showcasing their products will experience tailored sessions that focus on business development and knowledge sharing of the latest industry trends.

    Global Geothermal Energy Summit 2017
    29-30 November 2017
    Amsterdam, The Netherlands

    The Geothermal Energy Association (GEA) estimates that only 6.5 percent of total global potential has been tapped so far. With recent developments in the industry, unlocking the potential for new untapped sources of geothermal energy production, we are entering a new dawn for the geothermal energy industry.

    ACI’s 5th Global Geothermal Energy Summit will take place in Amsterdam, Netherlands. With The Dutch government’s ambitious plans to have all residential buildings to be off gas in 2050, geothermal energy has an important part to play in this transition. The conference will give the latest updates on the global geothermal energy market and its new developments. Showcasing new techniques and technologies that are paving the way for the sector and expanding the geographical regions where exploration can take place.

    With Geothermal energy production being one of the lowest forms of CO2 producing energy sources, its development and worldwide deployment is vital in the reduction in worldwide targets for CO2 reduction. The two day event will provide key insights into the opportunities, challenges, global trends and policies, through expert led case study presentations, interactive sessions and discussions giving practical examples of planning, financing and technological strategies shaping the future of geothermal energy production whilst networking with industry peers from across the geothermal power value chain.
