Secure, affordable, and sustainable


ADIPEC 2022 brought together 150,000 professionals and decision-makers from the energy industry.

ADIPEC 2022, the world’s largest and most influential exhibition in the energy industry, was hosted by the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC).

It took place from October 31 to November 3, bringing together 150,000 professionals and leaders, as well as 2,200 exhibiting companies from across the world.

“Secure, Affordable, and Sustainable” has been the conference’s concept since the very first day.

The goal was facilitate the operations of the global energy industry, strengthening international business partnerships, creating awareness of technologies that drive efficiency, and forming new models of cross-sector collaboration.

The opening ceremony was focused on energy security and its fundamental role in the advancements of economies, societies, and in slowing climate change.

HE Dr. Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber, UAE Minister of Industry and Advanced Technology, stated that “pursuing progress is in the Emirate’s DNA, and the future is for those who make the first move. We thrive for maximum energy and minimal emissions.”

He went on to stress that, “the world needs all the energy solutions it can get—oil, gas, solar, wind, nuclear, and hydrogen.” At the same time, HE Suhail Mohamed Faraj Al Mazrouei, UAE Minister of Energy and Infrastructure, highlighted the importance of diversifying energy sources, as well as reducing emissions, when discussing the ongoing work that the UAE is doing to achieve net zero by 2050.

The exhibition had four different exhibition zones; decarbonization, offshore and marine, digitalization in energy, and smart manufacturing.

Each of these plays a role in addressing the global energy industry’s need to reconcile pro-climate and pro-growth strategies, ensuring a realistic, equitable, and affordable transition to sustainable resources.

Industry experts also stressed the important roles of collaboration, technology, and digitalization in the advancement of decarbonization in different sectors. The UAE’s leading role in investing in enhanced capabilities and skill capacity was also noted.

The four-day event was packed with eight conferences, 350 sessions, and diverse initiatives such as Young ADIPEC 2022, which welcomed 800 students from 25 schools, and the ADIPEC Strategic Conference, which highlighted the role of carbon capture and utilization and storage technologies in the industry’s shift to clean energy.

With record attendance from over 160 countries and featuring more than 28 dedicated country pavilions this year, ADIPEC has been the Gulf’s most inclusive and international platform for the industry and happens to take place the week before COP27 in Egypt, and as the UAE prepares to host COP28, aiming to fill gaps to create a balanced and stable energy market.
