ESB International is delighted to be attending the Water, Energy, Technology and Environment Exhibition (WETEX) and Dubai Solar Show 2022 from the 27th to the 29th of September.  


ESB International attends WETEX annually, and over the years, it has grown into one of the largest specialised energy exhibitions in the MENA (the Middle East and North Africa) region. It provides a unique platform for leading experts in the energy sector to share their insights into the latest global technology and innovations in renewable energy. It is also a critical opportunity for the team to meet with senior decision-makers and stakeholders in the region who require sustainable energy solutions.  

The show is held annually under the directive of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, Ruler of Dubai, under the patronage of HH Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman of the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy, and organised by Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA).
