Saudi Arabia, European Union Experts Discuss Cooperation on Energy Efficiency
Saudi Arabia, European Union Experts Discuss Cooperation on Energy Efficiency

Dubai, UAE, January 2, 2018:   An “EU - Saudi Arabia Energy Efficiency Meeting” taking place in conjunction with HVACR Expo Saudi (14-16 January 2018, Jeddah Centre for Forums & Events) will gather key decision makers and experts from both the European Union and Saudi Arabia.

A high level “EU - Saudi Arabia Energy Efficiency Meeting” is taking place in Jeddah on January 14, 2018, under the initiative of the EU GCC Clean Energy Technology Network and the European Union Delegation to Saudi Arabia, with the participation of SASO (the Saudi Standards, Metrology and Quality Organization) and other Saudi entities. The event, organized in partnership with dmg events Middle East, Asia & Africa and Eurovent ME, is held in conjunction with HVACR Expo Saudi 2018 at the Jeddah Centre for Forums & Events. 

The meeting will address collaboration opportunities between Saudi Arabia and the European Union on HVAC standards, certification and labeling. Bringing together Saudi and European experts and decision makers, the “EU - Saudi Arabia Energy Efficiency Meeting” is expected to play a fundamental role in helping preserve the Kingdom’s wealth of energy resources and strengthen the national economy complementing the Saudi National energy efficiency program. 

Today, Saudi Arabia relies on liquid petroleum for approximately 60% of its electricity generation. Increase in electricity demand boosted by population growth and rising living standards is affecting the country’s oil export volume and earnings. With more than 70% of Saudi’s electricity being consumed for air conditioning and cooling, energy efficient HVACR solutions are key to achieve national growth in line with the Saudi Vision 2030. 

Confirming the participation of SASO to the “EU - Saudi Arabia Energy Efficiency Meeting”, Engineer Abdullah Al-Gahtani, Vice Governor of the standards and laboratories, commented: “SASO is glad to be part of this key initiative in Saudi Arabia, which will contribute in elevating the standards and the quality of HVACR products in the country, finally strengthening the competitiveness of the national economy going along with the Saudi national energy efficiency program.”

Michele Cervone D'urso, Ambassador of the European Union to The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, said: “Energy has been and still is the major pillar of Saudi Arabia’s economy. The European Union, which has recently set out a new 30% energy efficiency target by 2030, is glad to share know-how and collaborate with the Kingdom on such a strategic subject matter to support economic development in Saudi Arabia and foster a more sustainable future.' 

According to Frank Wouters, Director of the EU-GCC Clean Energy Technology Network, “The EU - Saudi Arabia Energy Efficiency Meeting is an excellent opportunity to meet key stakeholders and discuss cooperation on energy efficiency matters in the HVAC-R sector. It is our mission to foster clean energy partnerships between EU and GCC entities, and the meeting will facilitate the dialogue on energy efficiency.' 

Markus Lattner, Director of Eurovent Middle East, one of the largest cross-regional industry committees of its kind, said: “We look forward to sharing our expertise in HVAC technologies at the meeting, to promote energy-efficient and sustainable solutions improving the life quality of the people in the Middle East.'
Nathan Waugh, Portfolio Event Director at dmg events, commented: “As a leading exhibitions organising company, our aim is to advance the HVACR industry, promoting best practices and innovative solutions. We are therefore very proud to host the first meeting between Saudi Arabia and the European Union as part of HVACR Expo Saudi 2018. We trust that the EU - Saudi Arabia Energy Efficiency Meeting will initiate a beneficial dialogue and cooperation on energy efficiency matters supporting Saudi Arabia’s Vision and sustainable economic development.' 

Running from 14 to 16 January 2018 at the Jeddah Centre for Forums & Events, HVACR Expo Saudi is Saudi Arabia’s largest dedicated indoor climate and refrigeration event. An unmissable platform for HVAC-R industry professionals to network, do business and discover new technologies and trends, HVACR Expo Saudi brings together the most innovative HVAC-R solutions and equipment from local and international manufacturers.  Sponsored by Carrier, Samsung, Zamil, Midea, HH ShaShaker and Johnson Controls, the event is co-located with FM Expo Saudi and Saudi Clean Expo.
