Renewables & smart grid
High-performance buildings

United Arab Emirates is on the verge of transforming its oil-based industry to a cleaner industry base, and Finpro offers you a great opportunity to seize the enormous energy and construction opportunities in UAE.

Renewables & Smart Grid and High-performance Buildings export programs invite you to join the Team Finland ministerial business delegation to Dubai and Abu Dhabi with Kai Mykkänen, Minister for Foreign Trade and Development on 16-19 January 2017.

Why should your company go to the UAE?

United Arab Emirates as well as the whole Gulf region are in a transition stage from predominantly oil based economies to more versatile industry base.

Dubai has launched its own Clean strategy and the Demand Side Management Strategy to decrease energy and water demand by 30% by 2030. Currently existing renewable energy plans call for up to 2.5 GW of solar, wind, and waste-to-energy by 2030.
