Huawei to announce joint actions across the energy and ICT industry chain to unlock green energy potential for a low-carbon smart society.

Dubai, 8 October, 2021 - To help organizations worldwide get better prepared to seize opportunities arising from a carbon-neutral world, Huawei Digital Power will hold the Global Digital Power Summit 2021 in Dubai, UAE, on October 16th. The summit recognizes that the race to net-zero is on, and that the target of carbon neutrality truly requires a global coalition and international actions. The selection of Dubai, UAE, to host the summit also reflects the importance of the Middle East region to Huawei’s global digital power business.

Earlier this year, Huawei Digital Power Technologies was established to accelerate energy digitalization and decarbonization. The company aims to integrate digital and power electronics technologies to accelerate clean energy generation, to build green transportation, sites and data centers, as it focuses on building a better and greener future.

In the post-COVID world, green economic recovery has garnered significant attention as world leaders are eager to bring economies out of recession through a redesign to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase the resilience of infrastructure and communities. To date, 137 countries from the UN Climate Convention — responsible for 80% of global emissions — have committed to net-zero-emission targets. The key to carbon neutrality is the development of a new power system.

With a focus on digital innovations for a low-carbon and smart world, the summit will bring together energy policymakers, industry professionals in the data center, ICT and renewable energy sectors, and executives from across the world to discuss the challenges and opportunities of sustainable development and digital transformation.

At the upcoming summit, Charles Yang, the newly-appointed President of Global Marketing, Sales and Services, at Huawei Digital Power, will kick off the event, highlighting Huawei Digital Power’s commitment to building a low-carbon smart society. Yang is appointed to the new role having previously served as President of Huawei Middle East.

An exciting lineup of speakers from global industry players and Huawei partners such as Dubai Electricity & Water Authority (DEWA), Group42, ACWA Power, du, Uptime Institute and Engie will share their own best practices, success stories, and use cases in improving energy efficiency via digitalization.

It’s undeniable that no single company can succeed in the energy transition alone. Now more than ever, building a sustainable and low-carbon future requires joint actions and collaboration from across the energy, business, and government ecosystem. Thus, the summit puts a spotlight on the Huawei-backed ‘Call to Action’ statement that calls for energy industry companies around the world to set coordinates towards a net-zero energy sector.

For the first time in history, Huawei believes that everyone can participate in a step-change in efficiency, and the rare opportunity to reconcile the paradox between progress for all and a sustainable future for our planet. The company is thus committed to working with its customers and partners to build low-carbon and smart energy systems.

Huawei will also have a full-on live stream experience of the summit. Registration for the online event can happen here.
