Held every three years in select international cities, the World Energy Congress is the world’s largest, longest-running and most influential energy gathering.
Under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, the 24th edition will take place from 9 to 12 September 2019 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC). This will mark the first time the Congress has been hosted in a Middle Eastern city, and by an OPEC member country, in the event’s 94-year history.
The World Energy Congress sets itself apart from other energy and energy-related conferences by covering the entire energy spectrum, from oil and gas to renewables and nuclear as well as power, providing a forum for the industry’s largest and most diverse conversation.

Through the technology and operations experience of its asset companies, Mubadala is working alongside ADNOC to develop Abu Dhabi’s downstream capabilities and position the Emirate as the leading hub serving the Middle East and the growing markets of Asia.
“By being at the forefront of the 24th World Energy Congress, Mubadala will support our ambition to bring leading companies and investors, industry experts and entrepreneurs to Abu Dhabi next year. Ultimately, this will help create a leading platform for influence and strengthen cooperation between the public and private sectors worldwide,” said Dr. Matar Al Neyadi, Undersecretary at the UAE Ministry of Energy and Industry and Chairman of the UAE Organising Committee for the 24th World Energy.
Mubadala has a distinguished track record of developing, commercialising and deploying renewable energy solutions and advanced technologies.
The company is behind some of the highest-profile clean energy projects in the region and globally, including the region’s largest concentrated solar power plant, the 100 MW Shams 1 in Abu Dhabi.
In the coming months, the UAE Organising Committee will announce additional strategic partnerships for the 24th Congress that will cement Abu Dhabi’s position at the epicentre of the global energy industry.
