The workshop brought together experts in the fields of technology, finance and energy to discuss the economics and global commitments necessary to achieve sustainable low-carbon economies.

Dr Sultan Al Jaber, CEO of Masdar, who manages the prize said: “The European Future Energy Forum offers a platform for workshops that promote the exchange of ideas, knowledge and experience that are essential to finding tangible responses to today’s energy needs. The Zayed Future Energy Prize is unique in identifying and bringing together the people who are driving the development of sustainable technology solutions.”

Jerry Stokes, President of Suntech Europe, said: “One of the great things about the Zayed Future Energy Prize is its ability to bring together a diverse range of people and businesses - from small entrepreneurs like Indian farmers to large corporations like Toyota and Suntech.

The Zayed Future Energy Prize works with everyone - from those who would see a $100 note as a dream to companies who have hundred billion dollar businesses. The prize provides a unique platform to showcase leadership, innovation and vision — to enable us to find common solutions to our future energy challenges.”
