World Smart Grid Conference Series Middle East 2012 to Open in March in Dubai
Shanghai, Dec 12, 2011 AEST (ABN Newswire) - In Middle East, electricity need grows at a rate much faster than the world's average. According to a latest market research report, electricity demand in the Middle East is projected to rise by 25 per cent per annum between 2010 and 2015, which means it is going to soar by 300% in just 5-year period. Increasing electricity demand, coupled with skyrocketing cost to produce reliable electricity force us to think about an alternative solution to tackle the problem. Unlike in Europe or North America, Smart Grid in Middle East is still in the very beginning stage, which translates into very high potential to go and even higher economic benefit.
