The event saw the participation of a large number of national and international energy experts and academics, as well as the attendance of local, regional and international media.

This was followed by a speech given by Dr Wafi Dawood, Dubai Quality Group Chairman, praising the important role of the Award and the huge success it has been in the short time since its establishment.

Dr Abdalla Al Amiri, Chairman of Emirates Energy Awards, said: “Our leading country is the first to support international efforts for energy saving principles. This is manifested in visionary policies, which display a deep insight into the issues that concern experts in the fields of architecture, science, environment, harmony with international trends toward energy saving, and the development of alternate energy sources to maintain a clean environment with less thermal radiation. Ignoring these issues can lead to land skidding during wars, famines, dry seasons, floods, and other natural disasters against which man is powerless.”

Al Amiri concluded his speech by talking about the activities that the Award had carried out, including forums, workshops, participating in conferences abroad and hosting a number of related activities, as well as making plans for expansion outside of the country after several international companies, expressed their interest in joining the Award.
