Siemens Energy, one of the world’s leading energy technology companies, concluded a three-day virtual conference, entitled “Qatar Energy Days,” which brought together participants from across government, energy and industrial sectors, focusing on the technologies to meet and surpass energy-related goals under Qatar’s vision 2030.
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, said the organisers.
The e-conference, which took place from February 15 to 17, 2021, was attended by more than 350 participants and it 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, they added.
Siemens Energy said Qatar’s government was 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.
Herbert Klausner, Managing Director of Siemens Energy in Qatar, said the country had already adopted initiatives to protect the environment and reduce carbon emissions, but its energy transformation was still in the early stages.
"We hope that discussions like the ones we had will help accelerate the energy transformation in Qatar," he noted.
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.
Vinod Philip, EVP Chief Technology and Strategy Officer at Siemens Energy, said: "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," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
