● The Summit will open on October 16 in Dubai with more than 300 individuals attending the physical event, including executives from the Dubai Electricity & Water Authority (DEWA), Group42, ACWA Power, du, Uptime Institute and Engie.
● Huawei will announce joint actions across the energy and ICT industry chain to unlock green energy potential for a low-carbon smart society.
To enable organizations worldwide to be better prepared to seize opportunities arising from a carbon-neutral world, Huawei Digital Power will hold its 2021 Global Digital Power Summit in Dubai, UAE, on October 16th.
The summit recognizes that the race to net-zero is on, and that the target of carbon neutrality truly requires global coalition and international actions. The selection of Dubai to host the summit reflects the importance of the Middle East region to Huawei’s global digital power business.
Earlier this year, Huawei Digital Power Technologies was established to accelerate energy digitalization and decarbonization. The company aims to integrate digital and power electronics technologies to accelerate clean energy generation, building green transportation, sites and data centers, as it focuses on building a better and greener future.
In the post-COVID world, green economic recovery has attracted significant attention as world leaders are eager to bring economies out of recession through a redesign to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase the resilience of infrastructure and communities. To date, 137 countries from the UN Climate Convention — responsible for 80% of global emissions — have committed to net-zero emission targets. The key to carbon neutrality is the development of a new power system.
With a focus on digital innovation for a low-carbon and smart world, the summit will bring together energy policymakers, industry professionals in the data center, ICT and renewable energy sectors and executives from across the world to discuss the challenges and opportunities of sustainable development and digital transformation.
Charles Yang, the newly-appointed President of Global Marketing, Sales and Services, at Huawei Digital Power, will kick off the event, highlighting the company’s commitment to building a low-carbon, smart society. Yang previously served as President of Huawei Middle East.
An exciting line-up of speakers from global industry players and Huawei partners such as Dubai Electricity & Water Authority (DEWA), Group42, ACWA Power, du, Uptime Institute and Engie will discuss their own best practices and success stories, sharing case studies of improvement in energy efficiency via digitalization.
It is undeniable that no one company can succeed in energy transition alone. Now, more than ever, building a sustainable and low-carbon future requires joint action and collaboration from across the energy, business, and government ecosystem. The summit will put the spotlight on the Huawei-backed ‘Call to Action’ statement calling for energy industry companies around the world to set coordinates towards a net-zero energy sector.
For the first time in history, Huawei believes that everyone can participate in a step-change in efficiency and embrace the rare opportunity to reconcile the paradox between progress for all and a sustainable future for the planet. The company is fully committed to working with its customers and partners to build low-carbon and smart energy systems.
Huawei will provide a full-on live stream experience of the summit for those unable to attend in person.
