About the Retrofit Tech Abu Dhabi Summit

Sustainability is at the heart of the UAE’s vision for the future; Whether as part of the UAE Vision 2021, or the individual emirates’ sustainability goals, there is no shortage of exciting and ambitious projects happening in the coming years.

In Abu Dhabi in particular, the launch of the Abu Dhabi Energy Services Company (ADES), as well as ambitious plans such as the Abu Dhabi Demand Side Management and Energy Rationalization Strategy 2030, have brought about an abundance of new large-scale retrofitting and energy efficiency projects to the emirate.
