Conference Chairman
Doha International Sustainable Energy Conference 2018

Fellow Energy Professionals,

As Chairman of the first Doha International Sustainable Energy Conference, it gives me great pleasure to invite you to participate in this promising the event. Energy is the lifeline of our communities and sustainable energy is therefore the lifeline of our future. It is for this reason that we have given our support to the Doha International Sustainable Energy Conference and Exhibition. lt is for this reason that we have given our enthusiastic support to the Doha International Sustainable Energy Conference and Exhibition. We therefore encourage you to come and join the Gas, Power and Energy industry here in Qatar.

Recent years have seen a steady rise in levels of energy demand in the GCC due to population growth, urbanisation, growing GDP and industrialization, a trend that looks set to continue for years to come. To meet this rise, power­ generation capacity needs to expand at an average annual pace of8% between 2017 and 2020. The global outlook for energy demand is similar, with a focus on energy security, energy sustainability and low-carbon solutions. What we are witnessing is a steady transition to clean energy where natural gas, LNG and renewables are playing and will continue to play an increasingly important role. The opportunities are enormous.

In a world of smart energy solutions and big data, where energy efficiency and conservation will be crucial in helping producers and suppliers satisfy global energy demand, the Doha International Sustainable Energy Conference will provide participants with an excellent return on investment. It offers a far-reaching and diverse programme, one that has been shaped by energy professional and that will deliver exceptional insight, creating the perfect conditions to network and develop new business opportunities.

Investment opportunities in Qatar are well known and l personally look forward to welcoming you to the Doha International Sustainable Energy Exhibition and Conference. l am confident that the event will become an integral part of the global energy calendar for all clean energy professionals, technical experts and industry leaders.

Yours sincerely,

Mishal Bin Jabor AI-Thani
