cover other renewables, such as geothermal and biomass. It comes at a time when the economics of renewables have reached parity with many traditional sources of energy, according to Amin. ‘It’s a hugely encouraging environment,’ Amin says. ‘There is so much interest that 150 ministers from many countries are coming to the third session of the IRENA Assembly, and to a special reception we will be hosting in Abu Dhabi.’

Renewable energy’s time has really come this year, says Adnan Amin, the director-general of the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA). At this week’s World Future Energy Summit the organisation is launching a new Energy Atlas. One of the agency’s biggest-ever initiatives, it is designed to help governments and businesses make decisions about renewable energy easier. A valuable tool for businesses and investors, the Atlas will initially cover wind and solar power. Over the next year it will be developed to

Ministers attending will include Hans Koch, Deputy State Secretary in Denmark; Minoru Kiuchi Japan’s Parliamentary ViceMinister for Foreign Affairs; Mariyam Shakeel, the Minister of Energy for the Maldive Islands; Farooq Abdullah, Minister of New and Renewable Energy for India; and José Manuel Soria Lopez, Minister of Industry for Spain. ‘For the first time, renewable energy can be the cheapest option and that has been a tipping point for renewables growth.’ Continued over >

Zayed Win Makes Money Talk The environmental charity that won the Zayed Future Energy Prize last year saw a dramatic surge in support. The Carbon Disclosure Project is an innovative idea: a charity that works with major investors to press for reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. The Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) is an independent not-for-profit organization, which sometimes struggles to fund its ambitions. The $1.5m prize money has helped CDP expand its water disclosure programme,

which aims to drive improvements in businesses’ water usage and management. In 2012 major investors such as Banco Santander, BBVA and APG joined the programme, following the publicity from the prize. ‘We’ve seen huge responses this year,’ says executive chairman Paul Dickinson. ‘There’s been some extraordinary reductions in emissions reported to us, some 497 million tonnes of carbon reduction.’ Every year CDP’s 92 investor partners, who together hold a remarkable $10tn in assets, ask the world’s largest Continued over >

Zayed Win Makes Money Talk continued companies to disclose their emissions, make positive investments in improvements, and work to reduce their emissions. At the CDP’s launch Lord Adair Turner, chairman of the UK’s Financial Services Authority put the concept in very simple terms. ‘In business, what gets measured gets managed.' ‘It's kind of that simple,’ says Dickinson. ‘The Zayed Future Energy Prize is well named. The management of energy costs is intrinsically linked to the profitability of an enterprise. More than half the companies we now work with have had better than a 30 per cent return on their efficiency investments, so it’s almost like picking money off the floor.’ Eighty-two per cent of the 500 largest companies in the world now report to CDP. ‘The corporation is the most important

institution of the 21st century, and we are privileged to be able to work with them. Water disclosure jumped 73 per cent because of the prize. There’s a huge amount of work in getting companies to report to CDP – this requires a huge effort in our 10 offices across the world working in many different languages.’ CDP shared the prize last year with Dr. Ashok Gadgil and Schneider Electric for groundbreaking work advocacy in carbon reduction and energy efficiency. Dr. Gadgil is best known for his work with two developing-world technologies: ‘UV Waterworks’, an inexpensive water disinfection system, and the Berkeley-Darfur Stove, which is a low-cost fuel-efficient stove. He won the Lifetime Achievement Award. n

WFES and Water Summit This year the World Future Energy Summit (WFES), part of the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week, is being run in tandem with the inaugural International Water Summit. WFES daily will run a number of features on water issues during the week. Meanwhile the exhibitions and conference speakers will address the policy, planning and business concerns of the sustainability community. Several special features within the show will also highlight innovative solutions and technologies in the energy and water sustainability sectors.

Rio energises Olympics The 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro could be the first Olympics with a zerocarbon footprint, thanks to solar power.

Record Exhibitors at WFES 2013 Over 30,000 people are expected to attend this year’s World Future Energy Summit – including Lebanese popstar and UN Ambassador of Climate Change Ragheb Alama. Almost 650 exhibitors from 40 countries are expected as new features have been unveiled for WFES 2013. Naji El Haddad, WFES 2013 Show Director, says that the large numbers ‘clearly show the growing urgency to find solutions to the global energy challenges through new and renewable sources.’

The planned Solar City Tower, designed by the Swiss architecture firm RAFAA should produce enough energy for the entire Olympic village during the day. Excess energy is used to pump seawater up into the tower, creating a spectacular waterfall at night.

A

ny city that has a 70-round camel beauty contest and a Ferrari World theme park with the world’s fastest rollercoaster ride is, we can safely say, a place of extremes. And a place looking to mesh together its traditional past with a modern, cosmopolitan future. So Abu Dhabi – capital and largest of the seven United Arab Emirates (UAE) strung like prayer beads along the southern coastline of the Persian Gulf – is not going down the same route as its flashy northern neighbour, Dubai. The world’s richest country, with each of its 600,000 or so native citizens enjoying an average net worth of some $17m apiece, Abu Dhabi has not set out to become another mass, brash ‘beach and shopping’ destination. After all, its very name – which translates as ‘Father of Deer’ breathes tradition. Instead, the country is trying to integrate its Arabic and Islamic heritage with the modern, globalised world in a more subtle and measured way. The city does have plenty of first-rate air-conditioned shopping malls, an ever-increasing number of hotel rooms housed in ever-more spectacular buildings, and some superb beaches, with more than 200 miles of pristine coastline further along the coast. However, glossy

attractions like Ferrari World are only really the beginning. Right at its heart, Abu Dhabi also has a large, peaceful and beautiful oasis, where you can stroll beneath the quiet shade of thousands of palm trees, and where the modern world evaporates. The city has an elegant, Monte Carlo-style cornice ripe for a good oldfashioned promenade; a clutch of fine museums; and the new Central Market will soon incorporate a traditional-style souk. The world’s second-largest mosque, the Sheikh Zayed Mosque, is arguably one of the most important architectural treasures of UAE — and one of the most opulent buildings in the world. It is made out of marble, stone, gold, semi-precious stones, crystals and ceramics and can hold around 41,000 people. Aware that even the vast oil reserves that lie beneath its sands (9 per cent of the world’s proven oil reserves and almost 5 per cent of its natural gas) will one day run out, Abu Dhabi’s rulers seem to be looking to the future. And their vision is pan-cultural. The idea is to develop non-gas and oil assets like industry; real estate, and especially tourism, accelerating Abu Dhabi’s already pell-mell transformation from a sleepy pearl fishing centre into a vibrant high-end tourist

destination, one that appeals as much to local and sophisticated Arabian travellers as it does to their Western counterparts. That’s why there is a new accent on art and culture, with art galleries and cultural centres that reflect an eclectic, international mix springing up in every direction. It’s also why the Abu Dhabi Festival – to be held during 3-31 March 2013 – will feature Shakespeare, Chopin, the Mariinsky Ballet, and some of the world’s leading opera stars alongside a new work by Lebanese composer Oussama Rahbani. The newly-developed Saadiyat Island will soon house the Sheikh Zayed National

Museum, Louvre Abu Dhabi and Guggenheim Abu Dhabi. You can also play golf there – but watch out for the hawksbill turtle eggs. Looking at the other side of the cultural coin, it should not be forgotten that Abu Dhabi was originally best-known for its pearl fishing. In a nod to that heritage, a state-of-the-art waterworld on Yas, one of the many pretty off-shore islands, opens on 24 January 2013 – not quite in time for the Summit, but then you could always stay a bit longer. This gigantic new park promises ‘the first rollercoaster with onboard water and laser effects’ from which ’riders can shoot jets of water at targets, drop water bombs and trigger special effects.’ Sounds like fun. For the adventurous there’s the annual Red Bull Air Race on the waterfront; and ‘international hip-hop superstar’ Kanye West is performing live at the du Arena stadium on 31 January. You can also watch four-wheel drives trying to conquer the 300 metrehigh Tel Moreeb sand dune – imagine a pile of sand covering the Eiffel Tower and you’re pretty much there – with its 50° incline is not for the faint-hearted. Tolerant and well-regulated, Abu Dhabi is a paradise for shopaholics, hedonists and culture-vultures everywhere. But with the world’s third-highest per capita annual income after Norway and Luxembourg, it helps if you’re carrying a well-stuffed wallet. n

Putting Nature to Work

Project Hiati (image © Hok)

TRADITION HAS A PART TO PLAY IN BUILDING FOR A GREENER PLANET SAYS GAYNOR AALTONEN As our ancestors knew very well, buildings need to suit their immediate surroundings. That does not always involve high technology: in fact, it is more about using nature to the best advantage. Today, architects worldwide are taking inspiration from ancient building methods to achieve modern standards of sustainability. All around the world, architects and designers are learning anew from historic buildings, creating spaces that maximise air flow, save on water and are comfortable to live and work in despite using minimal amounts of energy. Rising like some kind of architectural phoenix from its desert surroundings, the new urban centre of Masdar is a prime example, The United Arab Emirate’s environmentally groundbreaking eco-city is a short drive from Abu Dhabi's international airport. Here architects such as Norman Foster have used ancient designs to enhance and complement the latest renewable energy technologies. This ambitious project is at the forefront of sustainable thinking, not just in the Arabian Peninsula, but in the world.

The ‘Hobbit House’ built by Archer & Buchanon

The Masdar Institute’s campus will soon be home to Siemens' regional headquarters. Inside, graduate students and scientists work intently and quietly on cutting-edge environmental research. Here they are protected from the raging sun by the sorts of architectural features that have sheltered the citizens of Abu Dhabi for centuries: thick walls help keep the interiors cool, while outside, narrow streets accelerate air flow, and those same pathways are cut at sharp, sudden angles to protect pedestrians from the searing summer heat. In the middle of a courtyard, a huge wind tower siphons hot air from above and turns it into a cool breeze that plays gently into the shady space below. The new building’s windows are protected with shades that act like the palm fronds that did the same job in older homes.

The Japanese, plagued by earthquakes, have long taken their building cues from nature. This is one reason why the American architect Frank Lloyd Wright was inspired by the Japanese aesthetic. Wright believed in fitting his buildings in with the land. Wright emulated traditional Japanese structures, and often based his designs around one main room used for lots of purposes.

Other new buildings in the region, from Katarain in Doha to Kaust University in Saudi Arabia, rely on similar zero-energy techniques.

The Japanese construction firm Takenaka has run a green construction practice for more than 40 years. Japan has in the past

been one of the worst offenders when it comes to gobbling up tropical hardwoods, but Takenaka is challenging this practice. The practice comes from an era when Japan was isolated and had to be as efficient as possible with natural resources available. The elimination of bearing walls and beams reduces the amount of building materials needed in a given construction. Woods sourced locally, or even recycled, are used in building anything from genteel old folks' homes to hard-wearing sports facilities.

Japan has humid summers and there has been a real strain on the country's electrical grid in the aftermath of Fukushima. Reducing the need for air conditioning has become a priority. Thin curtains in office buildings are reminders of traditional shoji, the semitransparent paper that allows in light while keeping out heat. Balconies with movable louvers are another feature that allows air to circulate freely. In ultra-humid Vietnam, architect Vo Trong Nghia has made zero air conditioning something of a crusade. ‘In Vietnam we have many problems with energy and electricity. It can stop many times a day,’ he explains. He frequently uses filtering devices, such as the vertical louvers and perforated screens that cover the facade of Binh Duong School to help air flow freely into each room. ‘The louvers stop the direct sunlight,’ he says. In his ‘Stacking Green’ house, built in Ho Chi Minh city, he filters light through an inner glazed wall. Twelve layers of plants front the spectacular but modest house, and prevent direct sunlight from over-heating the interior.

For centuries, Native Americans in the US south-west used rammed earth construction to build their houses. The technique involves tamping a mixture of clay and sand into building blocks, and helps moderate the scorching summer days and chilly winter nights that are typical in the Arizona and New Mexican landscapes. Rammed earth is also used in traditional Chinese and African construction. David Easton, of Rammed Earth Works has fine-tuned the ancient process for new homes in California and Hawaii. The heavy mass of the wall means that the building is not only shielded from heat extremes, but also has better acoustic properties. One client in Chester County, USA, even took up the idea of a ‘house built in a hill’, as seen in Peter Jackson’s film of The Hobbit. Architectural firm Archer & Buchanon re-used stone from an 18th century stone wall, building into the hillside to limit the use of further materials. So the house is literally built into ‘Middle-earth’. Some of Europe's best contributions to ‘green’ building solutions seem to come in

water management. The new Lucie Aubrac school in Nanterre, France, has sophisticated rainwater management, with rainwater either filtered and reused or absorbed by organic material on the roofs. Excessive sun is rarely a problem in Europe. Floods are expected to become much more commonplace, as climate change leads to fewer, but heavier rainstorms. The Danish architecture studio Tredje Natur is redesigning an entire neighbourhood of Copenhagen to handle the problem. Says partner Flemming Rafn Thomsen: ‘In 2011 Denmark was hit by three “monster rain” incidents. One of them was the worst for 500 years. The estimated total damage cost is over DKK6.2bn ($1.1bn). Ninety-five per cent of the damage was done in Copenhagen. ‘We haven't seen any incidents of flooding from the sea yet, but simulations say this is very much a realistic scenario. Copenhagen is built around a central harbour, and the estimated sea-rise levels will be devastating to the historic city center.’ The concept is to create waves in the available flat ground. When heavy rainfall strikes Saint Kjeld’s quarter, the water will be

collected in parks and squares. This should relieve the sewer systems, but it will also create new recreational areas around the pools. New cycle lanes will also double as storm drains, leading water into canals and out to the harbour, rather than filling people's basements. ‘We call it a “no regrets” solution’ says Thomsen. ‘The strategy is to rely on nature and develop new urban green qualities from day one. In reality we could be waiting 50 years to see the next “monster rain”, so the money should used to create more than just a technical infrastructure.’ Among the new amenities will be a giant ring in the main Saint Kjeld’s square which will spray out a cooling mist on hot days. In a world where nature is becoming more unpredictable, this philosophy makes sense. In fact, the new architecture buzzword goes further: biomimicry. In Portau-Prince, Haiti, the highly adaptable Caribbean Kapok tree has inspired a great deal of new thinking. These trees store water internally and shed their leaves in droughts to save energy. The Fondation Enfant Jesus orphanage was devastated by the 7.0 magnitude earthquake

that killed 316,000 people in January 2010. In Project Haiti, American firm HOK is factoring in the island’s rainy season and humid climate by studying the tree. The new orphanage will have a porous bamboo layer to protect the building’s concrete core; the bamboo’s high surface area and cell-like pockets circulate trade winds and deflect heat. ‘Nature is a dynamic entity, and we should be trying to design our buildings, our landscape and our cities to recognize that,’ says Thomas Knittel, a biomimicry specialist. Meanwhile, the building’s balcony mimics the kapok tree’s branching system, with socalled ‘daughter limbs’ and doubly thick ‘mother limbs’ on alternating floors, for added strength. Rooftop gardens – like the leaves at the top of the tree – will give the children additional green space, but will also be a place to hold the solar energy system. Whether they were building wattle-and-daub settlements or marvellous villas like Palldio’s Rotunda in Vicenza, more often than not our ancestors used nature in ways that we would now describe as intelligent. In a rapidly populating and increasingly resource-hungry world, it is encouraging to see modern architects emulating the old ways. n

Staying Power MAKING GREEN ELECTRICITY IS ONLY ONE CHALLENGE THE SUSTAINABLE ENERGY INDUSTRY FACES. BRENT WALKER REPORTS ON THE OTHER: STORING IT ‘If you think of the Gold Rush, then you’d be pretty depressed right now, because the last nugget of gold would be gone. But the good thing is, with innovation, there isn’t a last nugget. Every new thing creates two new questions, and two new opportunities.’ So says Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon.com, the world’s largest retailer. On the face of it, there is nothing to stop solar, wind and other renewables from becoming the dominant energy source of the future. They are clean energy sources, and are readily available. Most of all, unlike Bezos’ products, they are free. But there is one small problem that will give even the biggest optimist a headache: our limited ability to catch energy and keep it for later. It’s like being given a sumptuous, but filling, box of chocolates – and then being told that you have to eat them all at once. Renewable energies can only produce power some of the time, making green energy storage a technological Holy Grail. Technologies do exist, but to date, none of them has proven cheap enough or practical enough to provide this on a huge scale. Now is the time to use a bit of imagination, and push the boundaries of technological advances out there. Some are already largely in place, but needing a push. This category includes battery storage and smart grids and meters. According to Dieter Helm, an economist specialising in energy, utilities and infrastructure, and a Fellow of New College, Oxford, advances in batteries have already transformed communications — think of the batteries in your smart phone and laptop. Add electric cars as major ways of storing electricity (as they currently store petrol) and the transformation looks even more credible.

‘We have within our grasp the ability to store electricity, and to make the demand side active rather than passive,’ he says. ‘Put these two together and what they could bring is every bit as significant as new energy sources like fracking. The electricity industry we know today is the product of no storage and passive demand: that is why it is dominated by large, vertically integrated utilities.’ This is going to happen: it is only a question of how soon. Many governments, most notably in Germany, the USA and now South Korea are already allocating large sums of money to research energy storage. US Energy Secretary Steven Chu recently announced a new Energy Innovation Hub, with $120m of advanced research funding attached: in 2011 South Korea signalled its intention to become the global leader in this field, when it announced a $5.4bn energy storage investment programme. Yet most ordinary homes are full of a genius device that is one of the most effective energy storage systems around: the humble battery. Today, a host of innovations are popping up that may in future make the battery a contender in the battle to find effective, larger scale storage.

Batteries then and now Just how to store that elusive spark, energy, is not a new problem. The battery has always had a key role to play. When Thomas Edison set up the first commercial electric system in the New York of the 1890s, it depended on batteries to balance its erratic direct current electricity generators.

Today, the new-breed batteries include the lithium-ion (known as Li-ion) batteries that are most commonly used in mobile phones and laptops and even more recent developments, such as flow batteries and sodium-nickel chloride batteries. Both GE and Fiamm have developed a new sodium-nickel chloride battery that is already denser, smaller and safer than traditional gridscale ones. The units can be connected in a few seconds, and once connected can be assembled like LEGO blocks to store tens to hundreds of megawatts. Experts such as Jeremy Rifkin, advocator of the ‘Third Industrial Revolution’, want a future electricity grid made up of flexible, interconnected small-scale generation systems that would act almost as an internet for energy storage. ‘What we’re hitting here is peak globalization: peak oil per capita and peak oil of production,’ he has said. ‘We need to transform the electricity grid into an energy “inter-net” that acts just like the Internet.’ The right kind of ground-breaking thinking is already happening on a smaller scale in Canada and the USA. One of the key building blocks of batteries is the electrolyte. But what if you could create a battery using water as the electrolyte? It would be cheap, as well as totally green. Stanford PhD student Colin Wessells asked himself that question five years ago for his doctoral thesis. Now his company Alveo Energy, based in Palo Alto, California, is developing a battery made out of water and Prussian blue dye – the kind that is used to dye blue jeans. They add copper and iron, and think that in future they’ll be able to make a battery that costs $100 per kilowatt

Other developments in storage PUMPED STORAGE This is a tried-and-tested technology, but it is land hungry. It relies on being able to send water uphill to a reservoir and releasing it later to provide power via hydro turbines whenever the power is needed. It relies on being able to put two reservoirs near each other at substantially different heights.

COMPRESSED-AIR ENERGY STORAGE (CAES) Developed in the 1970s, compressed-air energy storage (CAES) is in the news again. The process injects air into underground reservoirs for release later, and although historically it too was limited by the availability of suitable sites for this process, a US company Sustain X has now developed an above-ground system, which is due for its first major trial this year.

THERMAL STORAGE This has only been seen as ideal for concentrated solar power (CSP). These facilities typically uses heat to melt salts, which is then used to drive steam generators. Now a British company has invented a liquid-nitrogen thermal system that it claims can store hundreds of megawatts of electricity very cheaply. Highview Energy Storage harnesses this surplus power to liquefy air, which is stored in a tank. When it is brought back to ambient temperature, the high-pressure gases released can be used to drive a turbine.

hour. This is far cheaper than lithium and even lead-acid batteries, which are being made for $150-200 per kilowatt hour. Alveo Energy has just managed to get a $4m grant from the US Department of Energy’s high-risk early-stage programme, named ARPA-E. Other US startups looking into storage for the power grid include Ambri, which is being part-funded by Bill Gates. Brent Perry founded Corvus Energy, based in Richmond British Colombia, to develop an efficient battery tech for heavy industry. Only two months ago, the company announced that, partnering with Siemens, its batteries were being used to power Scandline’s new hybrid diesel-electric ferry. This is one of the earliest cleantech developments in the arena of mass transport. In 2011, Scandline moved over 11.5 million passengers between Denmark, Germany and Sweden: and that's forgetting the millions of cars and trucks that were also on board. It's a great breakthrough. Using a lithium-ion battery system, Perry is excited to be, as he says, working in the vanguard of ‘sustainable capitalism’. He claims that his product has 22 per cent more power than other types of lithium-ion batteries. The future of making clean power low-cost and mainstream seems to be within our grasps. n Look out for tomorrow's Show Daily, which will contain a further interview with Brent Perry on the subject of innovation.

includes renewables, nuclear and CCS all on the same level for the first time.

Major Projects underway Globally the US, Canada and Australia are moving ahead and China over the last five to six years has many large-scale projects which are moving ahead quickly. After six years of negotiations we were able to get CCS acknowledged in the clean development mechanism last December in South Africa, when many countries opposed CCS being considered as a clean development mechanism project. We have a number of projects running globally, two in the power sector and the rest in gas processing and refineries. Essentially all projects are based around enhanced oil recovery to provide a revenue stream for CCS. Another driver is where Europe is in the CCS club. It has moved from wanting to be a leader to much confusion of late. The NER100 which funds up to 60% of projects could not get assurances from members as to where the rest of their funding would come from and so with this internal wrangling between member states it failed to allocate any money to CCS. However the UK and Netherlands are moving ahead on their own. The UK’s Electricity Market Reform (ERM), a first-of-a kind framework for incentivising all low-carbon technologies under the same umbrella,

14 15 JANUARY 2013 DAILY NEWS

Two power projects, Boundary Dam in Canada and Kemper County in the US, show the full chain. There are also eight projects the GCCSI have identified; they are mostly in gas processing but some in synthetic fuel. These include four in the US, one in Algeria called the Insalah project, Canada’s Weyburn-Midale project and two Statoil projects in Norway. One of those is the Sleipner Project, running since 1996, storing CO2 under the North Sea in a saline formation, and is the least understood.

Commercialization the target We revived a previously failed competition in a more comprehensible and flexible way. Whilst the original concentrated on one capture technology the new one covers all aspects including industrial CCS, which has become very important. It crucially looks at infrastructure and building the longer-term industry and not just point-to-point projects. It is called the ‘Commercialisation’ program and leads the way to make CCS commercially viable by 2020. We have also lobbied for the EMR to recognize CCS and pushed for ‘one price for all low carbon technologies’. As primary legislation we are hoping to get incentives for projects to be able to make final investment decisions. n


WORLD FUTURE ENERGY SUMMIT 15-17 JANUARY 2013

Summit Programme – Day 1 TUESDAY 15 JANUARY 2013 – OPENING CEREMONY Location: International Convention Centre (ICC)

11:00-12:00 Opening Ceremony at the Summit Theatre. Doors close at 10:30. Inspirational Speaker Peter Loescher – Global CEO, Siemens, Germany 12:00-13:00 Delegation Tour – Exhibition

13:30-13:40

14:40-15:30 Ministerial Panel 2: Building National Frameworks for Renewable Energy The renewable energy sector offers enormous potential in terms of growth perspectives and jobs, which are more urgent than ever in these lean economic times. Renewable energy can help national economies foster new competitive industrial sectors with significant export potential for a growing world market. But to do so, renewable energy needs long-term, transparent stable policy frameworks. Shifting legislation and policy uncertainty, as seen in recent years, threatens investment and market momentum. At the same time, many countries in the world see renewable energy policy as an integral pillar of their industrial policy.

Welcome and Keynote Address

13:45-13:55 Keynote Address Wu Hongbo – Under-Secretary-General United Nations 13:50-14:30 Ministerial Panel 1: Sustainable Energy For All The high-level ministerial panel on Sustainable Energy for All will give an overview of the highlights of the 2012 International Year of Sustainable Energy for All. • Ensure universal access to modern energy services; • Double the rate of improvement in energy efficiency; • Double the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix. This session will also look at the challenges and opportunities in reaching these objectives, focusing on the need for close collaboration between the public and private sectors: Governments need to design and implement integrated policy actions that strategically transform their energy systems, whilst the private sector needs to mobilize finance and take concrete action; and citizens and local communities must become drivers of the change. Moderator: Kandeh Yumkella – Director-General, UNIDO Panellists • Suleiman Al-Herbish – Director-General and CEO, OPEC Fund for International Development (OFID), Vienna • Adnan Amin – Director-General, International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) • Achim Steiner – Executive Director, United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP)

16:30-16:40 Keynote Address Todd Stern – Special Envoy for Climate Change, State Department, United States

16:40-17:30 Ministerial Panel 4: Water – Energy Nexus Water and energy are closely linked: water is needed to produce energy, and energy is required to move, treat, and heat water. The global energy sector uses vast amounts of water for fuel production and power generation, accounting for an estimated 8% of all freshwater withdrawals, and much higher rates in some countries. With global energy consumption set to grow considerably in the coming decades, major investments in renewable energy will be needed to meet rising demand, while mitigating climate change. Renewables have significantly lower water impact that help to overcome growing concerns over water supply and quality; some technologies can even be used to improve the water supply situation. Furthermore, they provide sustainable solutions for water desalination. There are already signs that water scarcity may be constraining energy production in many parts of the world. This session will provide answers how to meet the increased water demand from ever-increasing populations and expanding economies, while also protecting aquatic ecosystems. Moderator: Michel Jarraud – Chair, UN Water Panellists • H.E. Dr. Abdulrahman Al-Ibrahim – Governor, The Saline Water Conversion Corporation, Saudi Arabia • Dr. Vivian Balakrishnan – Minister of Environment and Water Resources, Ministry of Environment and Water Resources, Singapore • Dr. Ania Grobicki – Executive Secretary Global Water Partnership, Global Water Partnership, Sweden • Gudrun Kopp *program is subject to change

Energy Market Business Briefing

Savouring the desert sun SAUDI ARABIA AND ‘GREEN’ ENERGY? SURELY NOT. YET IF THERE’S THREE THINGS THE STATE HAS IN ABUNDANCE, IT'S OIL, WIND AND YES, SUN... BY BEN WARREN, GLOBAL ENERGY AND ENVIRONMENTAL FINANCE LEADER, ERNST & YOUNG

The creation of the Saudi Electricity Company (SEC) has played a cardinal role in the consolidation of a previously highly fragmented power sector. While being partly private, SEC also benefits from a monopoly in transmission and distribution and a quasimonopoly in generation. Although Saudi’s energy generation mix is almost wholly dominated by fossil fuels, with oil representing around 60 per cent of energy sources and natural gas making up the rest, the Saudi market is still seen as having the potential to attract investments in clean energy. The country hosts several major IPPs and IWPPs, delivered under long-term PPS that are proven to be bankable and have already attracted billions of dollars of domestic and international investment. There is no doubt that previous transactions, albeit limited to conventional energy, represent important precedents and lay the foundation for the deployment of a renewable energy market in the country.

large stretches of empty desert that can host solar arrays, in addition to the vast deposits of clear sand that can be used in the manufacture of silicon PV cells, makes Saudi Arabia an ideal location for both CSP and PV power generation. While harsh desert conditions, heat and dust can reduce system efficiency, the long periods of intense sunshine should help compensate for this. Unlike many other GCC countries, Saudi Arabia has good wind energy potential, with some 4.9 hours of full-load wind per day on average, one of the highest in the MENA region. Two windy regions exist in Saudi Arabia along the Arabian Gulf and the Red Sea coastal areas. Policies and plans Saudi has quickly made it onto the list of focus markets for investors and technology providers, with the government announcing its ambitious $109bn (€84.42bn) plan to install 41 GW of solar and 9 GW of wind capacity by 2032, and is consistent with the government’s desire to free up some of its locally consumed oil resources in order to increase exports. Other strong signals to the market include the King Abdullah City for Atomic and Renewable Energy (KA-Care), the government’s alternative energy arm, announcing its plans to launch a major renewable energy auction, similar to that being undertaken in South Africa.

power projects with 20-year PPAs, each signed with an IPP. While the planned auction could potentially revolutionize the shape of the power sector in the region, the lack of previous experience in renewable energy deployment should not be overlooked. With its current installed renewable energy capacity being almost negligible, Saudi still needs to go a long way in building its track record and credibility in the sector. The success of the procurement program will be largely determined by the attractiveness of the tariffs set by the government and the robustness of the procurement process, all of which will need to be assessed once more clarity on the program is provided by KA-Care. Outlook A strong track record in the development of power projects bodes well for clean energy expansion in Saudi, especially given its government has long demonstrated a substantial commitment to creating social and economic infrastructure, as well as its desire to free up hydrocarbon fuels for export. Previous successes with IPPs, the established bankability of Saudi PPAs and the relatively liquid financing market are all strong evidence for the country’s potential.

The financing environment is also accommodating, with local banks being fairly liquid based on an average loans-to-deposit ratio of 80 per cent. Further, the pegging of the Saudi Riyals to US dollars and the low exposure to the Eurozone makes Saudi an attractive market for international lenders. The country has a wealth of project finance experience and has hosted several landmark deals in the energy sector. Moreover, thanks to the Government’s investment in the grid over the last decade, it is believed that Saudi Arabia could provide up to 10 per cent of its total electricity capacity through renewable energy, without significant impact on power quality, according to the PV Group.

KA-Care is preparing to invite bids for the first phase of its procurement in the first quarter of 2013. The first round will include 1.1GW of solar PV capacity, 900MW of CSP, 650MW in wind capacity and 200MW from other sources, including geothermal and waste-toenergy.

The extent to which the government is able to translate its ambitions into a credible project pipeline will largely determine Saudi’s position in the CAI going forward. n

WORLD FUTURE ENERGY SUMMIT 15-17 JANUARY 2013

Smart Grids and evolution BUSINESS CONSULTANTS FROST & SULLIVAN ON THE FUTURE OF THE GCC’S ENERGY SECTOR

The world’s energy consumption is becoming a major issue, as forces of industrialisation, urbanisation, depleting hydrocarbon reserves and energy security threaten to overwhelm conventional supply options. Global energy consumption increased by 48 per cent from 1990-2010. Further, energy consumption is expected to increase by 33.5 per cent for the period 2010-2030. This demand-supply issue, coupled with the impending need to conserve, reduce emissions, and increase energy security through a reduction in dependance on conventional energy sources, has led to an increase in adoption of unconventional sources of energy at a global level. While renewables accounted for only 6.3 per cent of the global energy mix in 2010, this will change in the near future, with high growth forecast for various renewable technologies. At the other end of the spectrum, the power Transmission and Distribution (T&D) industry too is going through a major evolution in its lifecycle, with the emergence of smart grids as a solution to address efficiency and clean energy challenges. The global smart grid market is evolving rapidly, and is expected to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 26.6 per cent over the period 2012 to 2017, bucked by a constantly increasing generation base, end of life issues and an increase in proliferation of distributed sources of power generation. Echoing similarities with the global power generation and T&D situation, the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), formed by the six neighbouring countries – Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates – is also struggling with similar energy related issues. This is in spite of possessing 22.5 per cent of the world’s proven natural gas reserves, and 35 per cent of the world’s proven oil reserves. The GCC’s

energy issues are compounded by their high levels of energy consumption, with some nations reflecting the highest per capita energy intensity globally. Though the GCC has been impacted by the recent global economic recession and the Arab Spring, development plans for the period up to 2020 and 2030 are expected to go ahead, fuelled by sovereign wealth funds, hydrocarbon exports and a need for infrastructure and economic development. Cumulatively, the GCC’s plans for growth will challenge the power sector, which is expected to fall short of the expected demand unless a change is brought about into the energy mix. While the GCC has been lagging behind in its adoption of renewables and smart grids, recent developments augur well for the coming future. The GCC nations are realising

that by reducing the dependence of power generation on hydrocarbons they can benefit by freeing up hydrocarbons for exports and industrial use. Additionally, there is an intent to ensure that new spend on power infrastructure should be future ready, resulting in adoption of technologies that otherwise would not have been considered by the GCC, like smart grids, energy efficiency and power generation through renewable sources. Given the above, there is a strong potential for a greener future – both renewable energy and smart grids – in the GCC. Policy support, strong budgetary funding, infrastructure development and education can provide the required impetus to accelerate adoption for these two technologies. With the right support, these two industries can contribute extensively towards addressing unemployment and infrastructure-related issues in the GCC. n
