ACWA Power, the world’s largest private water desalination company and leader in energy transition in Saudi Arabia and first mover into green hydrogen, has become a full member of the Institute of Energy Economics, Japan (IEEJ), a think tank focusing on energy, economic and environmental issues.

The membership will allow ACWA Power to benefit from IEEJ’s experience in analyzing energy problems and providing data-led solutions. ACWA Power has gained access to valuable resources such as IEEJ’s vast database of original research that will allow it to strengthen its focus on green hydrogen and renewables, aligning with the company’s dedication to environmentally-friendly initiatives.

ACWA Power’s membership of the IEEJ was announced during the Saudi Japan Investment Forum, an event that aims to bolster cooperation between Saudi and Japanese companies, that took place in Riyadh.

The membership enhances ACWA Power’s ability to stay on the forefront of cutting-edge energy research and contributes to the company’s commitment to supporting sustainable progress and development.
