Supporting sustainable energy and energy efficiency not only saves fossil fuels and reduces greenhouse gases, it also brings financial advantages. Providing sustainable energy solutions can help to resolve some of the Middle East’s most urgent challenges.
The population in Middle Eastern countries is growing rapidly, which in turn, increases the demand for electrical power. To meet these needs, sustainable energy systems for the countries on the Arabian Gulf will need far more complex, networked, and flexible structures than they have today – from sustainable energy generation to a reliable power supply, to efficient operation to ensure energy conservation.
The increasing contingent of renewable energy sources, such as wind power, requires reliable conventional power plant capacity, in order to compensate for the fluctuations of renewable energy – especially as our world still relies heavily on the Middle East’s fossil fuels. Siemens is involved in numerous energy efficiency and sustainable energy projects in the Middle East, such as Shuweihat II. This combined cycle power plant, complete with a desalination system, has supplied power and drinking water to Abu Dhabi since 2011. In October 2014, Siemens will take part in POWER-GEN MIDDLE EAST in Abu Dhabi, with new technologies and developments in the power industry.
