“Masdar is proud to continue its strategic partnership with WETEX and we welcome the opportunity to amplify the debate on sustainability and the energy transition. Through platforms such as WETEX and Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week, the UAE is driving the global sustainability agenda and taking a leading role in climate action. We look forward to another productive event, and to engage in meaningful dialogue with other organizations on delivering a more sustainable future for all.”

Masdar will showcase its growing portfolio of clean-energy projects on its dedicated stand, located in the North Zone of Dubai Exhibition Centre. It will feature the Sharjah-Waste-to-Energy (WTE) project, the first commercial WTE plant in the Middle East, co-developed with Bee’ah, which will divert more than 300,000 tons of solid municipal waste from landfill each year.

Visitors will also learn more about Masdar’s work on Phase III of Dubai’s Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park (MBR), the world’s largest single-site solar park, as well as other future projects.

WETEX is an annual event organized by the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA), which is held under the patronage of HH Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Al Maktoum, Chairman of the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy and under the directive of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE, and Ruler of Dubai.
