About RetrofitTech UAE

The 2nd Annual RetrofitTech UAE was a resounding success. Under the patronage of Dubai Electricity & Water Authority and officially supported by the UAE Ministry of Energy, Supreme Council of Energy, Dubai Municipality, Etihad Energy Services and the Dubai Department of Tourism & Commerce Marketing, the conference gathered 300+ attendees to discuss the UAE’s multi-sector retrofit programme and opportunities associated with the Emirate-wide adoption of energy efficient technologies.

The conference opened with keynote addresses from H.E. Saeed Al Tayer, CEO, DEWA, H.E. Dr. Matar Al Neyadi, Undersecretary, Ministry of Energy – UAE and H.E Ahmad Al Muhairbi, Secretary General, Dubai Supreme Council of Energy. Over the two days, attendees discussed government and private sector initiatives towards a sustainable Dubai as well as strategies and the latest innovations to enable the implementation of an effective retrofit programme.

Excellent Opportunities for the Sustainable and Energy Efficiency Industry:

Did you know...?

  • Several government-backed entities in Dubai have signed contracts worth around $20 million to make environmental improvements to their real estate portfolios.
  • 28 per cent the cost savings up to this figure that can be achieved through energy efficient retrofitting according to the international energy agency
  • 70 percent the amount of energy produced in the country that buildings use according to Dubai Municipality
  • The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) estimates that buildings use about 40 per cent of global energy, so ‘greening' buildings is a crucial part of any country's energy-saving strategy.
  • Experts estimate that as much as 29 per cent of energy consumed by buildings can be reduced at little or no cost
  • Retrofitting buildings to green standards is a great source of job creation, and could create thousands of jobs across the Middle East
  • The Empire State Building recently received an eco-friendly makeover, which will reduce energy costs by $4.4 million a year

The ACM Interface+ Format

The ACM Interface+ conference format is designed to optimise the valuable and finite time our busy delegations can dedicate to being out of the office while also enhancing their enjoyment of the ACM on-site experience. Specifically tailored to our region of operations here in the Middle East, the Interface+ format maximises networking opportunities, facilitating the building of profitable relationships within the context of a dynamic, efficient and relevant learning environment.

ACM conference days, using the Interface+ format, have an earlier start than conventional agendas and conclude with a late lunch. The conference sessions are regularly punctuated by refreshment and networking breaks to allow for unhurried face-to-face interaction between peers, colleagues and business prospects. The mid-afternoon conclusion of our formal conference agenda allows for government representatives and busy executives to adjourn earlier in the day, having still enjoyed a full and rich programme of content. Post-lunch, ACM will offer additional, optional learning and networking opportunities in the shape of workshops, product demonstrations, technology launches, site visits, pre-arranged 1-2-1 business meetings and hosted receptions.

Interface+ makes timing sense for our delegates and business sense for our sponsors.
