issues and files of economic development for the future of the energy sector.
The Conference hosts experts and specialists from 80 countries around the
world, including officials, owners of factories, operators, and engineers to
discuss ways to meet the growing demand in the GCC countries, which is
estimated between 6 and 10 per cent, equivalent to eight billion watts,
especially that more than 300 billion Dollars are expected to be invested in 20
energy-related projects by 2020.

Switzerland, Jordan, Greece, and Germany, has reviewed 130 research papers
received on the 30th of January. Mr. Nigel Blackaby, Director of the
Conference, said that there is a tremendous response this year that combines
traditional and alternative techniques, which will contribute to the diversity
of speakers at the Conference. The submitted research proposals include: “operation,
maintenance and fossil-related technology, renewable energy technology, the
technical market trends, issues of strategic planning projects, and structural
organization of strategic markets".
Committee has met to put the finishing touches on the agenda of the Conference,
and the addressed topics included the list of oil prices and low prices, which
in turn provide opportunities for power generation, and that the only effect
will be the lower rate of investment in the short term because the oil is still
a major source of income for the regional economies.
The names of speakers
will be announced in the Power-Gen Middle East Conference in the coming weeks
