Combining business and social interests with government action, the overall objective of the EEES was to foster enhanced communication, while educating participants about key energy efficiency issues and trends,as well as provoking a two-way dialogue that will ultimately help drive real action. Delegates to the event were welcomed on 3rd February by partners Ms. Dalya Al Muthanna, President & CEO of GE Gulf; HE Mr. Bernard Fautrier, Vice- President & CEO of The Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation; Dr. Lance E. de Masi, President of AUD and Dr. Meshgan Al Awar, Secretary General, Zayed International Prize for the Environment.
The formal inauguration of the Emirates Energy Efficiency Summit 2016 was held on 4th February by His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco who shared his own insights into the conversation at the thoughtprovoking platform. His Serene Highness commented: “The Emirates Energy Efficiency Summit provides a global approach to energy issues, due both to the questions raised and the eminent figures who provide answers. How can we mobilize individuals, companies and states for fundamental change, which is not cost neutral and whose results are sometimes distant? This question is, I believe, at the heart of any environmental commitment.”
