World Future Energy Summit

The World Future Energy Summit (WFES), part of Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week, is the world’s most influential event dedicated to advancing the use of renewable energy, energy efficiency and clean technology.

On Wednesday 18 January, CEO Jens Birgersson will take part in a panel discussion on “Benchmarking the cost-effectiveness of a retrofit” and SVP Bernard Plancade delivers a TechTalk on “Rising to the challenges of modern living: energy efficiency and fire resilience as the main drivers of sustainability in the building sector".

 In 2016, the exhibition at the World Future Energy Summit brought together 600 companies from 32 countries and more than 30,000 attendees from 150 countries, making it an essential place to network and seek new business opportunities not only in the Middle East region.

Energy Efficiency Expo

The ROCKWOOL Group has been working with partners at WFES to establish an Expo dedicated to Energy Efficiency and we are proud to be a founding sponsor. The Expo will allow us to increase awareness of how our products can help solve global challenges related to energy efficiency, urban mobility and water management.

“We are thrilled to be the founding partner of the Energy Efficiency Expo in Abu Dhabi. This is an important step in positioning the Group, and most importantly our offerings, to a global audience of key stakeholders. Stone wool can and should play a valuable role in solving global challenges, especially when it comes to energy efficiency while at the same time improving quality of life for society” says Mirella Vitale, SVP Group Communication, Marketing and Public Affairs.
