Gas and Power Forum

Stage: Energise

Date: 28 November 2024

Overview

In power generation, operators are under increasing pressure to limit costs and enhance flexibility in the rapidly changing energy market. Unsurprisingly, gas and power generation plants require high reliability to curtail cost-intensive and critical downtimes. The Gas and Power Forum at the Future Power Expo in Saudi Arabia is set to be a pivotal event addressing the evolving energy landscape - with innovative technology, from AI to advanced turbine technology, to strategic blueprints of the future-ready power plant.

The forum will focus on the challenges and opportunities within gas and power plant operations, including the need for efficient resource management, the integration of renewable energy sources, and the development of robust infrastructure to support future demand trends and securing a resilient energy future.

The forum aims to foster collaboration among industry leaders, policymakers, and technology innovators to unlock new opportunities for growth and development by addressing critical topics in gas and power. With substantial investments and strategic initiatives underway, the forum will provide a platform to share insights, best practices, and innovative solutions that will shape the future of energy systems.
