Chairman H.E Dr. Rashid Alleem, will speak at the third edition of the Global Solar Leader’s Summit (GSLS), which is part of the exhibition. 

“If applied and shared, knowledge is power,” said H.E Dr. Alleem, announcing his presence at the event. “Participants will be able to share their knowledge, learn and adopt best practices.

“By promoting breakthrough ideas, and by bringing under one roof thousands of solar industry professionals, this event can really make a difference in the regional community and beyond.”

His Excellency Dr. Rashid AlleemDr. Alleem is spearheading SEWA’s green revolution with Ecomagination, the utility's strategic plan to reduce environmental impact at a local scale.

“We have a clear strategy to increase the amount of renewable resources for energy generation in Sharjah,” says Dr. Alleem.

SEWA has signed a 5-year plan with the Sharjah University’s research and development centre to develop and share innovative ideas related to power, especially in the renewable sector.

“We are also offering full scholarship to 700 students in the renewable energy and engineering fields, as we strongly believe in funding research,” adds Dr. Alleem.

SEWA has also been increasingly investing in solar technology and encouraging the adoption of solar technology at a community level. 

“In one and a half year, we lighted with solar energy 27 km of roads in commercial, residential and industrial areas of the Emirate. The project is proving successful and is still progressing,” says Dr. Al Leem.

He added: “We are advising residents in the Emirate to use solar energy powered water heaters, and we are educating farm owners in remote areas to ‘go solar’. The feedback we receive is very positive and encouraging for the future of solar energy."

Co-located with The Big 5, The Big 5 Solar will meet the growing demand for solar energy solutions in the region, while promoting best practices in the solar market.

The event in Dubai will showcase the latest solar technologies from leading PV manufacturing countries such as Germany, Italy, China, India and Turkey as well as from the GCC region.

Alongside the exhibition, The Big 5 Solar 2017 will feature 12 complimentary Continuing Professional Development (CPD)-certified Solar Talks delivered by industry experts.

The show will take place at Dubai World Trade Centre from 26-29 November, while the GSLS will take place on 27 November.
