Siemens Energy recently concluded a 3-day virtual conference, highlighting Qatar’s global decarbonization potential and bringing together more than 350 participants from across government, energy and industrial sectors.

Entitled “Qatar Energy Days”, the event highlighted Qatar’s role in advancing the energy transition globally, its potential for creating a domestic hydrogen economy, as well as the evolving global energy trends.

The virtual conference, which took place from February 15 -17, brought together a wide variety of perspectives from local experts in generation, transmission, and industrial applications, as well as government officials, in order to help shape the energy of tomorrow. Qatar’s government is making it a priority to find harmony between economic growth and protecting the environment in order to mitigate the effects of pollution and global warming.

“Qatar has already adopted initiatives to protect the environment and reduce carbon emissions, but its energy transformation is still in the early stages. We hope that discussions like the ones we had will help accelerate the energy transformation in Qatar,” said Herbert Klausner, Managing Director of Siemens Energy in Qatar.

Topics discussed during the conference include: Shaping the energy transformation in Qatar; Grid stabilization through digitalizing transmission products and asset performance management; Why oil and gas companies should pivot to hydrogen?; and Driving operational excellence in oil and gas through digital transformation.

“This event was a great platform to discuss the potential for Qatar’s energy transformation. Qatar has the ability to leverage its existing expertise and technologies as a leader in the LNG industry to drive its transformation into cleaner energy,” said Vinod Philip, EVP Chief Technology and Strategy Officer at Siemens Energy. – TradeArabia News Service
