Technical Visits

In addition to its impressive energy credentials, the United Arab Emirates is a regional leader across many advanced fields and emerging technologies. Delegates at the 24th World Energy Congress can look forward to visiting a wide variety of installations and sites across the country.

  • Shams 1 (the world’s largest parabolic trough solar station)
  • Barakah (site of the UAE’s peaceful nuclear energy programme)
  • Abu Dhabi National Oil Company’s advanced carbon capture sequestration technology
  • Masdar City (a futuristic city powered by solar and other renewable energy)
