-- The Middle East is changing constantly on the basis of supply and delivery of energy resources. With constant shifts in energy demands, key players are subjected to potential threats to investments, price volatility, alternative fuel choices and geo political involvement; given these shifts, the risk to global energy is rising.
Thus there is a dire need to develop a conceptual framework and methodology to analyse global energy security and governance. Helping identifying the geopolitical drivers, actors, issues and risks and assessing their consequences for the Gulf‘s energy strategy and low carbon transition policy will be elaborated at the 11th Middle East Energy Security Summit.
Speaking at the summit will be Faisal Ali Hassan Rashid, Director, Demand Side Management - Supreme Council of Energy, in an exclusive speaker presentation titled “The Geopolitics of Energy and Gulf‘s Development Future: Prospects for Balancing Demand and Supply”
According to him, “ The supply side and demand side strategies are meant primarily to address energy security and sustainability. We believe that the planned reduction in share of fossil fuels for power generation, as well as the expected savings on demand coming from our strategy will strongly address energy security requirements.”
Taking place on the 21 – 23 April 2015, at Le Royal Meridian, Abu Dhabi – UAE, the summit will also conduct interactive panel discussions, which will be joined by a panel of industry peers who will brainstorm and put form opinions, solutions and insights about the relevant topic for the same. The topics for these panel discussions includes
Comparing and Contrasting the Approaches from across the GCC
Shale Gas as a Potential Game Changer : Challenges, Policy and Governance
Having the right mix to safeguard Energy for the Future
Energy, security and conflict in a future perspective
Rainer Hinrichs-Rahlwes, Vice President of European Renewable Energies Federation (EREF), will enlighten the audience about analysing and developing Security Strategies for a World in transition. In answer to how policy
diversification will ensure energy security, Rainer elaborated that “Moving away from only a few finite resources towards more and abundant renewables sources will considerably increase energy security. Smart and unambiguous policies are needed to support the transition towards a renewable energy and energy efficiency
based energy system”
Along with exclusive speaker presentations, panel discussions, intriguing case-studies, relevant workshops and networking sessions, this summit will also showcase energy security solutions from the conference sponsors, Paramount Group and Red Tiger Security.
