Dublin, Ireland, 2nd October 2019 — Europagrid has become one of the sponsors of the 10th Dii Desert Energy Leadership Summit, this time taking place on 25th and 26th November at the Adlon Kempinski hotel in Berlin, Germany. Combined with the 10th Arab-German Energy Forum and in co-operation with Ghorfa (Arab—German Chamber of Commerce), the conference will be held under the theme ‘The Energy Transition in the Arab World’.
Being part of the Dii’s Advisory Board, Europagrid Founder and CEO, Rory O’Neill, will host the Interactive Networking Roundtable on Power Grid Capacity and Interconnections.
In 10 years’ time, Dii Desert Energy has grown from a rudimentary ‘Desertec Vision’ (initially mainly concentrated on power from the deserts for Europe, ‘Desertec 1.0’) via a focus on clean energy for the region (Desertec 2.0) towards a highly recognised market enabler for ‘green electrons’ and ‘green molecules’ from the deserts of MENA for MENA’s own population and eventually as a net exporter for the global emission free energy markets (Desertec 3.0).
The combined Ghorfa – Dii event will offer a unique platform for the exchange of knowledge, strategies, experience and personal networking among an international audience from the public and private sector.
Europagrid is a specialised developer of cross-border transmission projects and energy internet grid technology. These projects help to connect renewable and carbon-free generation sources to key markets.
