Networking is a fact of business life. But in the Middle East, where numerous developments are incubating, exciting projects that could transform how we source and use energy in this region, conferences are no longer the droll small-talk affair. Instead, they comprise an opportunity for serious and creative collaboration. During the upcoming Eilat-Eilot Renewable Energy Conference, for example, stakeholders will review Israel’s Renewable Energy environment, while the Qatar Alternative Energy Investors Summit (QAEIS) provides an essential meet n’ greet service for investors and innovators. On March 16th – 17th, 2011, in Doha, Qatar, QAEIS 2011 will team up with Qatar General Electricity and Water Corporation (Kahramaa) to marry investors with suitable alternative energy projects. At the QAEIS, pre-qualified private and government investment bodies and individuals from the GCC will be introduced to innovators seeking capital.
This creates a win-win situation. Investors are presented with an opportunity to make a return on promising goods and services, while would-be game changers can save many hours and dispiriting phone calls with one fell swoop. Since only serious investors are invited and one-on-one interviews are pre-arranged, there is an excellent chance that the best innovators will garner funding.
Businesses will have an opportunity to meet with leading industry representatives and lead dedicated energy workshops, while investors are led directly to potentially worthwhile projects.
Some investors include:
• National Bank Of Bahrain
• Abu Dhabi Investment House
• Capital Management House – Bahrain
• Commercial Bank of Qatar
• Masdar Abu Dhabi Future Energy
• Mashreq Bank
• Global Emirates Gates Investment
• Emirates Capital
• Union National Bank
“QAEIS is a good opportunity to display our seriousness in such initiatives and in investing in renewable energy. We are currently involved in building Qatar’s first solar-powered water desalination plant,” said His Excellency Essa Bin Hilal Al-Kuwari, Acting Managing Director of KAHRAMAA and Chairman of Gulf Cooperation Council Interconnection Authority (GCCIA).
