ENGIE EXPO 2020, leverages the global platform to demonstrate the importance of climate change actions
ENGIE, a global leader in the low-carbon energy transition, has successfully concluded its participation in Dubai EXPO , the first world expo to be held in the Arab world.
Over the course of six months and keeping with its environmental values, ENGIE was involved in implementing various energy optimization solutions and will now be responsible for the sustainable dismantling of the temporary EXPO French Pavilion building.
“Marking a new phase of sustainable growth in the UAE, EXPO has been an important platform for the UAE to highlight its alignment with the United Nations’ SDGs and goal of achieving net-zero by 2050,” commented Florence Fontani, Director of Projects & Coordination, ENGIE Asia, Middle East, and Africa.
At EXPO 2020, ENGIE hosted 45 events focused on climate change themes. Reflecting ENGIE’s decarbonization ambitions and support of regional net-zero targets, topics included clean desalination, sustainable cities, decarbonization, the blue economy, and the mangroves’ role in preserving the country’s biodiversity.
Thanks to ENGIE, visitors to the French Pavilion enjoyed a spectacular and immersive viewing experience. Viewers were mesmerized by hydrogen-powered bicycles and cars, biomethane buses, electric charging stations, solar farms, and innovative urban lighting solutions.
On the sidelines of EXPO 2020, ENGIE announced its latest partnership together with Masdar and Fertiglobe to co-develop a green hydrogen facility, targeted to be operational by 2025 with capacity of up to 200 megawatts to supply Fertiglobe’s ammonia production plants in the UAE.
