World Hydrogen MENA: Energizing the Clean Energy Revolution Across MENA Region

By Eric Van Rees - 19th January 2024 - 07:57

Join 500+ senior decision makers from across the hydrogen value chain in Dubai for World Hydrogen MENA, 26 – 29 February 2024

Middle East and North African (MENA) countries are making bold moves toward clean energy. They're supercharging renewable energy, embracing electric vehicles, and driving green hydrogen innovation. With cutting-edge tech like grid storage, micro-grids, and hydrogen export hubs, they're seizing an unprecedented opportunity.

But what makes it truly exciting is that the MENA region isn't just keeping pace; it's leading the charge with innovative solutions. As they harness their unique advantages for renewable energy, they're not just improving local energy markets; they're poised to become global clean energy leaders. However, this transition is a journey that demands long-term planning and bold actions from policymakers and businesses. Success will rely on strong partnerships, robust technologies, and sustainable finance. With a commitment to economic diversification, workforce development, and visionary leadership, the MENA region is set to become a central player in the global energy transformation.

In partnership with Dii Desert Energy and the MENA Hydrogen Alliance, World Hydrogen MENA brings together the entire hydrogen value chain across MENA and the rest of the world to accelerate global clean hydrogen development. With favourable geographic conditions for renewables and an established traditional energy export sector, the region has an exceptional opportunity to become a global clean hydrogen powerhouse.

Building on the success of the 2022 & 2023 congresses and coming just a few short months after COP28, the 2024 programme will feature 100+ expert speakers and 500+ attendees from across MENA, Europe and Asia, coming together to tackle the latest developments, challenges and opportunities facing hydrogen in the region.
