Updated: Apr 10

Kicking off 2024, we embody our #TogetherWeAreStronger ethos by partnering with Dii Desert Energy, ACWA Power and KAUST (King Abdullah University of Science and Technology). 

Excitingly, we are integrating the 7th CBC Annual Leadership Forum’s activities, including the World CleanTech Awards - Edition 2023 Awards Ceremony and CBC Hubs Strategy Meetings, into our collaborative gathering on the occasion of ACWA Power Innovation Days, scheduled from January 23 to January 25, 2024 at KAUST in Thuwal, Saudi Arabia. 

This gathering offers a unique platform to interact with visionary leaders, World Cleantech Award recipients, and pioneers in the cleantech sector. Our Leaders will have the opportunity to engage with our esteemed partners at Dii Desert Energy during their exclusive Dii Partner Meeting, and connect with the ACWA Power management team during their one-of-a-kind ACWA Power Innovation Days.

This event promises to be a hub for global experts, researchers, investors, and innovators, focusing on renewable energy, energy storage, seawater desalination, and green hydrogen. 

Together, we aim to foster conversations around technological advancements, digitization, and progressive thinking in our industry.

We are thrilled to confirm the presence of top CBC & Dii Leaders from all the continents, and the entire ACWA Power management committee. Esteemed guests from MEWA, MOE, PIF, DEWA, and EWEC are also expected to attend.
