The five-day Middle East’s first LPG Week got under way today (December 5) with renewable energy and innovation at the heart of its discussion agenda.
The World LPG Association’s (WLPGA) flagship event will consist of multiple sessions on topics such as LPG supply and demand in transition, the journey towards zero carbon involving innovation and renewable LPG technologies, developments and plans for LPG in Marine, the UNHCR and WLPGA partnership, pathways towards decarbonisation and fossilisation in the LPG industry, power generation, removing the LPG roadblocks and more.
The event is witnessing the participation of over 2,000 delegates from 90 companies across 72 countries bringing international best practices, challenging industry standards, gathering industry leaders and policymakers, and forging new business relationships within the region and globally.
Enoc Group, the Official Integrated Energy Partner of Expo 2020 Dubai, and the exclusive host of the Middle East’s first LPG Week, together with Emirates Gas, a subsidiary of Enoc Group and a leading player in the UAE’s gas industry, is hosting the event at the Dubai World Trade Centre under the theme ‘Energising Tomorrow’.
Saif Humaid Al Falasi, Group CEO, Enoc, said: “Enoc takes pride in being at the forefront of using alternative technologies to promote a green and sustainable Dubai. The thought-provoking discussions taking place during LPG Week will further support the industry’s transformation and act as a strong catalyst towards innovation and adopting sustainable development practices.”
In line with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) COP26 negotiations earlier this month, WLPGA will present the role of LPG as an essential source of low carbon energy for billions of people across the world. It will also highlight how LPG fuels thousands of applications from road transport to industrial facilities, and is a clean, efficient cooking solution, addressing climate change as well as improving quality of life for people, particularly families in regions that still rely on unsustainable biomass and other unclean and dangerous fuels for cooking and heating.
WLPGA’s council members meetings will take place in the first two days of the event, where members will explore topics such as innovation and growth, business improvement, and advocacy.
Following the success of last year’s virtual event, LPG Week 2021/Dubai will follow a hybrid concept this year. In parallel with the in-person event, it will also take place on an online event.-- TradeArabia News Service
