At a Glance
In 12 years’ time Dii Desert Energy work has evolved from a rudimentary ‘Desertec Vision’ (initially mainly concentrated on power from the deserts for Europe, ‘Desertec 1.0’), then from 2015, based in Dubai, focusing on clean energy for the region (Desertec 2.0).
In recent years the organisation evolved as the market enabler for ‘green electrons’ and ‘green molecules’ (notably hydrogen, ammonia and e-fuels) from the deserts of MENA for MENA’s own benefit and as an emerging exporter in a global context (Desertec 3.0).
The conference will, thus, be fully dedicated to the energy transition developments in the Arab region along the energy value chain of power generation, conversion, transport, storage and last but not least flexible demand and global trade.
