The Middle East and North African region play a key role in curbing climate change and contributing to the global efforts to reduce carbon emissions. Cooling is an energy-intensive and non-stop activity in arid environments, and district cooling provides a major energy saving. This benefit is being realized in new and upcoming megacities in the region, where district cooling has set a strong foothold. Nearly 650GWh of electricity savings has been recorded using district cooling in Dubai alone in 2020.

While district cooling has proven to be the most energy-efficient cooling solution, there are several new methods and improvements to decrease its carbon footprint and reduce the usage of potable water, hence boosting sustainability.

The MENA region is witnessing rapid growth in dense cities and communities, raising the number of upcoming district cooling projects, as well as the need for upgrading existing plants with digital transformation and energy retrofits. Furthermore, district cooling operators are in a continuous pursuit to streamline their processes to facilitate efficient growth, profitability, and progress. The district cooling market in the Middle East is projected to reach USD 15 Billion by 2027.

In light of these developments, the Great Minds Event Management is hosting the MENA district cooling conference, an exclusive forum gathering all the region’s key district cooling stakeholders to discuss crucial areas including modernization, digital transformation, upcoming projects, energy-water nexus, and the latest in joint ventures and partnerships.
