Global IWPP Summit
With a solid background and rich experience in organizing high value Utility Conferences, Fleming Gulf is delighted to announce The 2nd Annual Global IWPP Summit.
In both developing countries and mature economies around the world, electricity and water have fast growing consumption rates. The Middle East region is facing a challenge to balance both these resources effectively. Power generation operators have to effectively, yet efficiently, increase output to meet a growing need.
The GCC has made a continuous and concerted effort to enhance its power generation capacity with demands expected to grow between 7% - 8% annually and is planning to spend US$ 45 billion until 2015 in order to meet this demand. In addition to power production shortcomings, GCC regions need to also overcome water shortages and ensure sustainable resources for their future. A recent report states that GCC governments are expected to invest over USD 100 billion in the water sector between 2012 and 2016 to improve desalination technologies and maximize on wastewater treatments and recycling.
