His Highness Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum visits the Siemens booth at WETEX 2016 and is received by Dietmar Siersdorfer, CEO of Siemens in the Middle East and UAE. Siersdorfer explained the company’s interactive microgrid table, which enables users to build a grid system that integrates power generated from renewables and traditional sources of energy without sacrificing grid stability.
The 17th Water, Energy, Technology and Environment Exhibition (WETEX) in Dubai runs from October 4th until 6th. Maintaining stability is increasingly important in today’s energy mix, which features a growing share of renewables and where it is often necessary to compensate for fluctuations in power supply.
Siemens has a number of speakers at the show. Manfred Waidhas, Head of Technology @ Innovation of Business Segment “Hydrogen Solutions” at Siemens AG, will present the topic of energy storage in the megawatt age. Speaking on Day 2 of the event, Waidhas will explain why hydrogen is an ideal solution as a multi-functional energy carrier and storage concept.
Jeff Dunlap, Senior Executive Vice President of the Power and Gas Division at Siemens Middle East, will focus on three topics during his presentation at the show on October 6th. Dunlap will explain how the Dry Fuel Oil Operation can reduce water consumption by 100 percent; why combining heat, cooling and power in a cogeneration plant with an absorption chiller system allows the use of excess heat for cooling; and what the energy landscape will look like by 2050.
