Introduction to Wind Power

Introduction to Wind Power, the potential and challenges in the Middle East region

In April 2015, the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs, IRENA and Masdar announced that Wind and Solar Power may now be the cheapest sources of new energy supply in the United Arab Emirates.

We hear a lot about solar power and all the new projects being launched in the region. But what about wind? How mature are wind technologies? To what extent could recent wind technologies be adapted to the region? What are the risks to consider when developing a wind project?

To learn more about these issues, the YPE (Young Professionals in Energy) is pleased to invite you to meet our guest speaker; Khaled Klabi, Head of Renewables at DNV GL, who has a vast experience in the sector. The event is free of charge, co-organized with the Young in DNV GL group, and will take place in Park Regis Kris Kin Hotel, opposite Burjuman in Karama. This event has limited availability; access will be granted on a first-serve basis only.
