Discover the new WFES
WFES (World Future Energy Summit) is a global industry platform connecting business and innovation in energy, clean technology and efficiency for a sustainable future.
WFES Expo hosts over 800 exhibiting companies from over 40 countries; The Future Sustainability Summit; the unique WFES Forums, covering everything from disruptive technologies to future cities; CLIX , the ground-breaking WFES Initiative; and WFES Hosted Events, where individual growth markets come under the spotlight.
WFES is part of the largest sustainability gathering in the Middle East, Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week (ADSW). ADSW is dedicated to furthering our understanding of the major social, economic and environmental trends shaping the world’s sustainable development, and to empowering the global community to realise viable and effective strategies to mitigate climate change. To seriously address the global energy challenge, the relationships between economic development, poverty eradication, energy security, water scarcity and climate change cannot be overlooked.

Tech for Good
Guided by Sheikh Zayed’s humanitarian vision, the UAE is supporting the development and deployment of technology for social change and improving the lives of the underprivileged. Considering this ADSW will host the second edition of the Tech for Good Forum. This one-day meeting brings together UN Agencies, NGOs, donors, technology providers and entrepreneurs to review how humanitarian assistance is being furthered by advances such as renewable energy, digital, military, autonomous & remote technologies, improving urgent access to power, food, safe drinking water and quality of life where more long-term intervention is required.
