INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS FOR A SUSTAINABLE ENERGY FUTURE In a bid to maintain steady production while maintaining the highest HSE standards, ADNOC & its Group of Companies endeavor to adopt all technological innovations to continue their productivity standards. To achieve this mission, ADNOC & its Group of Companies have embarked on several ambitious projects including the introduction of improved Enhanced Oil Recovery techniques and building artificial islands to boost their production capacity from 2.8 million bbl/day of oil with condensates now, to 3.8 million bbl/day by 2020. Along with their renowned international partners, ADNOC Group will seek to acquire and deploy state-of-the-art and proven technologies to meet their long term objectives. Being committed to playing an important role in the global oil market, ADNOC & its Group of Companies utilize all available technologies to enhance oil production capacity and at the same time deploy best reservoir management schemes to ensure and safeguard controlled depletion of the oil reserves. In response to this growing challenge, we have made significant achievements to diversify Abu Dhabi’s energy supply, with emphasis on enhancing natural gas production from our gas reserves. Being aware of the global challenges to meet oil and gas demands, we are actively improving our operations to protect and enhance both the community and environment.

have committed to the creation of an ambitious initiative, the Africa Clean Energy Corridor, at a meeting convened by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA). The Corridor will boost the deployment of renewable energy and help to meet the rising African energy demand with clean, indigenous, cost-effective power from sources including hydro, geothermal, biomass, wind and solar. Ministers and delegates endorsed the Action Agenda on the eve of IRENA’s Fourth Assembly, which was held on 18-19 January 2014 in Abu Dhabi. “The Africa Clean Energy Corridor will provide the continent with the opportunity to leapfrog into a sustainable energy future,” remarked Adnan Z. Amin, IRENA’s Director-General. “The dynamic development that Africa will see in the next decades needs to extend to the energy sector, and Africa’s abundant renewable energy resources are a perfect match to meet rising demand in a sustainable and cost-effective way – from Cairo to Cape Town,” he added. Electricity demand is expected to triple in Southern Africa, and quadruple in Eastern Africa over the next 25 years. As power demand multiplies, the region’s current dependence on fossil fuels becomes increasingly economically and environmentally unsustainable. A regional approach to developing the vast

Proud to be a Platinum Sponsor

The sustainability battle will be won - or lost - in the cities Charbel Aoun, Senior Vice President, Smart Cities, Schneider Electric Cities are growing – and so are their challenges

Collaboration is what makes a city smart

Cities today contain 50% of the world’s population, account for 75% of global energy consumption and give off 80% of greenhouse gas emissions.

Each city is unique – from history to size via availability of resources and complexity of urban development. So its ambition will be unique too: to host a major event, expand, relieve pain points, or just to plan its future. And each city is a complex value-chain - involving not only local and regional governments and inhabitants, but also private companies, utilities, real estate developers as well as investors. So one thing is sure: as cities embark on their own journey to “smart”, they need to bring in all their stakeholders, including the private sector, from the start. This calls for a new approach that combines public governance, citizen inclusion, and business collaboration. It is about making multiple stakeholders work together with a collaborative mindset, united by a shared vision of efficiency and sustainability, under strong public leadership.

By 2050, they will be home to 70% of the people in the world. This means that over the next 40 years we need to provide new urban capacity equivalent to that of the past 4,000 years. As the world wonders how to meet the growing demand for energy and resources, while drastically reducing global carbon emissions, one thing is clear: this energy-climate battle will be won, or lost, in the cities. Cities are facing growing challenges: scarcity of resources such as energy and water; pollution; aging and overloaded infrastructure; traffic congestion; and crime. Yet cities need to compete for talents, jobs and investments, while reducing their costs and managing their debt. Efficiency helps to do more with less.

At Schneider Electric, we are working with more than 200 cities worldwide. This is why we understand that making cities sustainable is both a vertical and horizontal challenge. The vertical challenge refers to the most pressing issues facing the many urban infrastructure domains – mobility, energy, water, services, buildings, and public security. For each domain, strong technical and process expertise is required to design an effective solution and ensure data accuracy. Take a major city in Brazil. Over the past ten years, Telvent, our information services company, has provided the municipality with a complete infrastructure management solution. Eleven different control centres manage all parts of the city’s critical infrastructure: electricity, water, oil, gas, public transportation and traffic, air quality, airports, etc. This was made possible by our thorough understanding of the operations involved in each domain The horizontal challenge is about making the sum greater than its parts. It requires a holistic approach to interconnect all these smarter vertical domains. Interconnection means both technical integration of legacy systems and open platforms. Improved real-time data collection, when interconnected, will help city authorities to better manage, optimize, and make faster decisions,

We know what it take and we help to make it happen At Schneider Electric, we want to help cities build the vision, develop the roadmap, and deliver efficient and sustainable urban infrastructures. design innovative financing models, clever collaborative approaches. each city become smarter – in its own way. We achieve this: By providing innovative, expert solutions in energy, mobility, water, buildings, and public services. By tailoring our solutions ot each city’s unique needs. By bringing our recognized integration capabilities. And by partnering with others. The sustainability battle will be won, or lost, in the cities. At Schneider Electric, we want to help win this battle.

Waste-to-Energy High economic growth supported by rise in oil revenues, economic diversification, urbanization has an overbearing impact on environment. GCC countries have one of the world’s highest per capita waste generation with much of it going into landfills. Is GCC on the cusp of incorporating alternative, ecofriendly solid waste management methods to transition from simple management of waste to “value” recovery? What are the waste to energy techniques available and which are suitable for the GCC market (Biomethanation or Thermal)? What is deterring the GCC market from adopting the waste to energy? What are the global best practices in waste to energy that can be replicated in the GCC?

The Role of Science and Technology in Resource Rich Countries Resource-rich countries more often find themselves burdened with economic and social situations that could only be described as ‘problems of the plenty’. Of course, the scenario varies from region to region and continent to continent. However, if a country has to lift itself out of this morass, what are the issues that need to be tackled? Could this be through a strong R&D infrastructure, continuously fed by an innovationoriented academia that additionally encourages entrepreneurship? Or could the solution be only through human capital development? How long can a country afford to wait for human development to bear fruits? How could this process be expedited, if it can be expedited at all? Have there been model success stories that could be replicated?
