One of the foundations of Dubai’s success as global hub for trade, finance and tourism is its integrated, reliable and efficient infrastructure, which has supported the Emirate’s growth. Yet today we need to look for tomorrow’s solutions and ideas to build a future for Dubai, in which sustainable development is at the heart of everything we do.

The Emirates Energy Award plays an important role in achieving this objective. The Award is supporting the initiative of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, called Green Economy for Sustainable Development, and will bring new ideas, and innovative technology solutions that benefit all nations around the world.

Innovation is always enriched by intelligence and science. I wish you all every success in realizing your visions in making sustainable energy a reality through this award.

Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum
Chairman of the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy
