Doha power event to explore prospects

Doha, September 25, 2010

The various opportunities opened up by the steady expansion of the Gulf’s energy sector will be explored during an upcoming event in Doha.

GCC Power 2010, the region’s top electricity industry event, will run from October 18 to 20 at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel.

The event will feature both 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.

“GCC Power 2010 is the best platform for regional and global companies to identify opportunities and forge partnerships as the Gulf broadens the scope and capacity of its electrical energy sector,” said Ali Mohamed Al-Ali, manager, GCC CIGRE.

“Gathering all electricity stakeholders to a single event enables them to gain clearer perspectives on where the industry is headed and identify key growth segments.”

“Moreover, Qatar, the future home of the $2.6 billion Energy City, the Middle East’s first energy business center, is a perfect host country for emphasizing the role of energy in national development,” he added.

The event will enable professionals, manufacturers, suppliers, contractors and specialists to directly interact with government officials and key decision makers involved in the electricity sector.

“Over the years IFP has partnered with GCC CIGRE to engage more industry and government figures in deep discussions on the state and future of the region’s energy sector,” said George Ayache, general manager, IFP Qatar, organiser of GCC Power 2010.

“As the Gulf’s interconnected electricity grid proves, a unified approach to electricity development is the best way to meet burgeoning regional demand.”

“We will fully support GCC CIGRE in highlighting GCC Power 2010’s importance as a forum for providing more information on the latest energy technologies and trends, gaining consensus on the best regional strategy for capacity expansion, and attracting global interest in Gulf energy,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
