Gulf power demand focus for Doha summit

Doha, June 24, 2010

A projected 9.5 per cent growth in annual demand for electricity and energy in the GCC and the business opportunities driven by the demand will be the focus of an upcoming conference in Doha.

GCC Power 2010, the eighth regional conference for national committees of CIGRE (the International Council on Large Electric Systems) in the Arab Countries and the 15th Exhibition for Electrical Equipment, will be held from October 18 to 20 at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Doha.

“GCC Power 2010 is the only event capable of providing a comprehensive view of the latest developments in electricity and energy affecting the Gulf region,” said George Ayache, general manager, IFP Qatar, organiser of GCC Power 2010.

“It will combine panel and technical sessions with international exhibitions to offer a full range of information and options to industry and government decision makers.”

“The event will also share valuable insights on Qatar’s thriving energy business, which has emerged as one of the country’s primary growth sectors,” he added.

Energy is among the industries that will benefit from the Qatar Government’s $140 billion 2010 budget for investment, infrastructure and business expansion, a statement said.

The GCC Power 2010 will discuss development, technologies and techniques in system operation and control, system planning, development and technical studies, substations, power transformers and reactors, switchgear and HV equipment, transmission lines and cables, HVDC and power electronics, and emerging technologies. – TradeArabia News Service
