DUBAI, 15th September, 2022 (WAM) — The Water, Energy, Technology and Environment Exhibition (WETEX) and Dubai Solar Show (DSS) annually attract major South Korean companies specialising in water and renewable energy.
These companies view the exhibition as an ideal platform to showcase the leading Korean experience in this field and consider the event a great platform to establish new partnerships in promising markets in the region and the UAE.
Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) is organising the 24th WETEX and DSS from 27th to 29th September at the Dubai World Trade Centre. The annual exhibition witnesses a large turnout of major regional and global companies to promote their innovative products, services and technologies in energy, water, sustainability, green technologies, renewable and clean energy, green buildings, smart grids, electric vehicles and other vital sectors.
Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD and CEO of DEWA, Founder and Chairman of WETEX and DSS, highlighted the importance of the exhibition in consolidating cooperation between the UAE and South Korea to transition to a green economy and support innovative solutions that contribute to mitigating climate change.
This is in line with the goals of the UAE and Dubai to be a hub for exporting and re-exporting green products and technologies. Al Tayer noted that the partnerships between the two parties are premised upon several areas of clean energy, the most important of which is low carbon hydrogen, which supports the UAE’s efforts to produce competitive hydrogen. The UAE is targeting 25% of the share of the low-carbon hydrogen market, which is expected to amount to more than US$400 billion.
Over its past 23 editions, WETEX and DSS witnessed the participation of 3 Korean supporting organisations and 11 South Korean companies. Korea Water Partnership (KWP) leads the Korean Pavilion in this exhibition.
“Korean companies were able to achieve fine results through participation in WETEX and DSS 2021, and we expect that various performances will be obtained this year as well,” said Seulgi Kim, Manager of Korea Water Partnership (KWP).
