RAK Energy Summit concluded at the Al Hamra International Exhibition & Conference Center in Ras Al Khaimah, UAE,  after two days of dialogue on climate change and the future of energy sustainability.

The two-day summit brought together regional and global government officials, leaders and experts in the field. Held under the patronage of Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi, UAE Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Ras Al Khaimah, the summit included panel discussions and debates about the future of energy sustainability and renewable energy.

It shed light on local and international efforts to curb climate change and shape a better future. The session featured high-level speakers, such as Sharif Al Olama, Undersecretary for Energy and Petroleum Affairs, UAE Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure, and Munther Mohammed bin Shekar Al Zaabi, Director General of Ras Al Khaimah Municipality.

Sheikha Amneh bint Saud Al Qasimi, Chairman of Ras Al Khaimah’s Investment and Development Office said, “ The summit is a platform for us to exchange expertise in advancing the clean energy transition in the UAE, and to make progress towards our national goals, embodied in the UAE Net Zero by 2050 strategic initiative.”

The RAK Municipality launched a new industrial energy audit initiative to help local industries identify opportunities for energy efficiency and competitiveness. Future Architectural Glass, Eternity Technologies and Falcon Technologies, RAK Ceramics, RAK Rock/Stevin Rock, RAK Ports and Union Cement were the first companies to participate in the initiative by signing agreements with the Municipality at the Summit.

The second day of the summit also saw RAK Courts, RAK Public Prosecution, RAK Civil Aviation, RAK Chamber of Commerce awarded certificates of compliance with ISO 50001:2018, for their efforts in implementing energy management systems.

The agenda included other keynote contributions from government and industry leaders, and was sponsored by Siemens, Enova, EESL, EDF, Luceco, Sun Money, CleanMax, Pactive Solutions, Ledvance, Terraco, Netix and Teknoware.

The RAK Energy Summit served as an ideal platform that brought together our partners and customers to enhance dialogue within the industry and cross-learning opportunities needed to drive climate change.
