CONFERENCES IN NUMBERS
The Strategic Conference is a global meeting place for power and water leaders to forge partnerships, explore business opportunities and discuss the latest trends that will drive the industry forward. The Conference reflects the issues CEOs and their leadership teams need to consider, as they modernise utilities to manage disruptive change and embed future-focused digital transformation strategies in response to evolving market and customer needs.
The Strategic Conference is an important enabler for engagement between policy makers, business leaders, disruptors and innovators, driving the conversations around the complexities of the evolving utilities landscape.
The utilities sector is going through an immense transformation and keeping pace with technological advancements is important to ensure profitability, competitiveness and adequate decarbonisation efforts. The Technical Conference of the World Utilities Congress offers utilities industry professionals unprecedented access to the latest industry knowledge and research findings, technical expertise, new project developments, state of the art technologies and industry best practices.
Across 12 technical categories, the conference will cover all aspects of the utilities industry's value chain, encompassing technological innovations in power generation, transmission, distribution, storage, water management, energy transition, health, safety, and environmental (HSE) practices, along with a focus on operational excellence.
NUCLEAR ENERGY FORUM
Nuclear energy is key to achieving global net zero objectives, working in partnership with renewable energy sources and other low carbon options, as part of a sustainable energy system to decarbonise electricity and non-electric energy production.
The dedicated Nuclear Energy Forum will run alongside the exhibition focusing on the role of nuclear energy in achieving net-zero, new and emerging technologies in the nuclear industry, challenges and opportunities and the future of the nuclear energy industry, and more.
The World Utilities Congress brought together many of the important players in the energy sector at a time of great importance leading up to COP28 in UAE. The Technical Conference enabled the cross-pollination of ideas and opportunities to collaborate on the pressing industry challenges.
