Ministry of Energy & Industry
Doha, Qatar

Ladies and Gentlemen,

It gives me great pleasure to welcome the energy industry players and stakeholders to Qatar for the inaugural edition of the Doha International Sustainable Energy Conference and Exhibition.

Qatar is currently enjoying a golden era of prosperity that is the culmination of years of a visionary leadership and reinvestment of hydrocarbon revenues back into Qatar’s economy. Qatar, not only one of the world’s leading gas and clean energy exporters, it is also one of the most attractive economic destinations for investment in the Middle East, with significant business opportunities, a unique investment climate and a booming economy.

Qatar recognised at an early stage that both energy and economic diversification are necessary factors for long-term sustainable growth. As we plan the future energy landscape beyond 2030, cleaner energy, energy reliability and sustainability are at the top of the agenda. The role that clean energy, both natural gas and renewables, will play in our future will be fundamental in our pursuit of a resilient and sustainable development.

It is for these reasons that the Ministry of Energy & Industry has agreed to support the Doha International Sustainable Energy Conference and Exhibition to be held in Doha. It will tackle the dual challenge of climate change and a rising global demand for cleaner sources of energy.

The Ministry of Energy and Industry is confident that the event will become the most sought after global gathering for all clean energy professionals, technical experts and industry leaders, seeking to lead the way in designing our energy future.

I look forward to welcoming you all to the first Doha International Sustainable Energy Exhibition & Conference.

Dr. Mohammed Bin Saleh Al-Sada
Minister of Energy and Industry
State of Qatar
